Pioneering People Basilica Benefit: Courtney Love

Artwork for Basilica Hudson Courtney Love event

Basilica Hudson’s biennial Pioneering People fundraiser celebrates groundbreaking artists across a range of disciplines by hosting and honoring a one-of-a-kind person in their raw industrial church. This year’s event – taking place Saturday, October 27 - will celebrate the achievements and legacy of musician, songwriter, actor, performer and cultural force Courtney Love.

Through conversations, readings, video, and performance, the evening’s program will shine a light on all of the ways that Love has influenced culture and inspired women and marginalized people for almost three decades.

In celebration of the 20 year anniversary of “Celebrity Skin,” the groundbreaking third record by Love's Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum, award-winning band Hole, the event will shine a light on all of the ways that Love has influenced culture and inspired women and marginalized people for almost three decades.

The event will be hosted by a group of creative luminaries and friends and will feature special performances.

Soiree Creative Directors Melissa Auf der Maur and Joe Mama-Nitzberg join us.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
