SPIN to Host Hole’s First U.S. Gig!


After a triumphant return to the stage this week in London, Courtney Love and Hole will play their first U.S. show in more than a decade at SPIN’s annual bash at Stubb’s BBQ in Austin, Texas, on Friday, March 19.

Nobody’s Daughter, the first Hole album since 1998’s Celebrity Skin, was just picked up by Mercury/Island Def Jam for an April 27 release, and Love graces the cover of SPIN’s March issue, hitting newsstands next week.

Love — along with new bandmates guitarist/songwriting partner Micko Larkin, bassist Shawn Dailey, and drummer Stu Fischer — will join a packed lineup on the SPIN at Stubb’s main stage featuring soul rockers Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Canadian punks Fucked Up, dance rocking Swedes Miike Snow, NoCal indie stalwarts Rogue Wave, and cheeky Ohio glam rockers Foxy Shazam, who landed on SPIN’s 10 to Watch in 2010 list.

Das Racist and Dam-Funk will drop DJ sets between main stage performances.

On the indoor stage, Philly rockers Free Energy (also on the 10 to Watch list) and Austin’s own power popsters Harlem join Goons of Doom and Audible Mainframe.
