Courtney Love, in one of her better moments. Nothing was beaten, burned, cursed at, urinated on or otherwise damaged or defiled in the making of this photo.

It was brought to our attention earlier today that today is the 45th birthday (yes, you read that correctly) of former (and–maybesoon to be again) Hole frontwoman Courtney Love.

Is Courtney Love from Springfield, DeRosh? I don’t think so. 

Perhaps Ms. Love–or Miss World, if you will–is not herself a native Springfieldian, but any woman with that kind of chutzpah and ability to influence a generations of “riot grrrl” rock chicks is welcome here as far as we’re concerned. Our suggestion: Put on your best baby doll dress, smear lipstick on your face liberally* and head out to some of the following shows:

Don’t Call It a Comeback: The Adrenals to play again Oct. 1

Shout from the heavens! We're back!

Shout from the heavens! We're back!

The words “told you so” haven’t felt this good in a long time. Meanwhile, a certain Punk Rock Wednesday just got a whole lot more interesting. Just a couple of months after longtime local punk band the Adrenals played its farewell concert, the band is back at the Outland for its return(?) gig on Wednesday, October 1, with Parasite Diet and the Reacharounds.

The reason? They had too much fun playing the farewell gig. It looks unlikely the band will tour like it did in the past–all of the members are in the middle of other projects and careers–but we may get to see more gigs like this in the future. Lace up the Doc Martens and grease up the mohawk again. It’s time to slam dance!
