Courtney Love @ The Independent, San Francisco, 25-July-2013

Courtney is happy and enjoying herself, which is a great relief to everyone. She is dressed in a classic Stevie Nicks style with various droopy bits hanging from her arms. She gradually sheds clothes as she warms up. The band are rather diligent and workmanlike. They put me in mind of Morrissey's bands: more likely to overwhelm than seduce. At one point there are four guitarists all strumming away. Courtney's great rock voice is in pretty good shape. What really gets her going is the talking and sparring with the equally happy crowd. Some of the audience are dressed as if for a camp cabaret performance, which they more of less get. The old songs are the best.
