Courtney Love Melts Down In D.C.

cbslove Courtney Love Melts Down In D.C.

We didn’t think it was possible, but did [lastfm]Courtney Love[/lastfm] hit a brand new low this week at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C.?

We’ve got details of the three-hour trainwreck after the jump.

Love had always been known for her … um … “unpredictability,” but the [lastfm]Hole[/lastfm] show at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. on Sunday night may have taken the cake. [lastfm]Hole[/lastfm] played for three hours and ran through thirty songs, which sounds fantastic, until you break that down:

  • Only a handful of the songs were played to completion, as Love could not remember the chords or lyrics in many cases
  • Her assistant videotaping songs on an iPhone – standing right in front of Love on several occasions, blocking the audience’s view
  • Casual racism:  “Do you really like rock music?” Love asked one young woman. “Because you’re African American. That would be like me being into Lil Wayne.”
  • Love performing the encore topless

“This is a really weird show,” Love said at one point. “I can’t tell if it’s really terrible.”

Yes, Courtney. Yes it was.

Relive the glory days (day?) of [lastfm]Hole[/lastfm] with this video:

After all of her antics, does a new [lastfm]Courtney Love[/lastfm]/[lastfm]Hole[/lastfm] album interest you in the slightest? And what’s the strangest thing you’ve ever seen at a concert?
