Event Re-cap

Courtney Love - Live at UC

by OutInCanberra

A small, though excitable crowd gathered at UC Refectory on Saturday night to see one of the 90s most talented and tempestuous stars take the stage. It could be none other than Ms Courtney Love. What the Hell would happen tonight? After a storming warm-up set from Melbourne’s The Mercy Kills, the beer queue formed, while a range of tiara-and Doc-Marten-wearing ladies pressed themselves up against the barriers in anticipation of the grunge goddess’ appearance.
