With past issues with addiction, jail stays, mental institution stints, and public displays of lunacy, the media and the world at large have been waiting for Courtney Love and her career to permanently derail for over a decade now.

Well, if you were at The Cap Thursday night (June 27) expecting to see a train wreck on stage, you were greatly disappointed. For over an hour, Love and her band played past Hole hits like “Violet” and “Asking For It” mixed with a few covers (“Under My Thumb!”) and grossly underrated solo tracks like “Dirty Girls” and “Mono.”

Look, Love is always going to be extremely outspoken, and a little discombobulated, but on stage she’s right at home, in full control, perched on her throne as the Queen of Alt-Rock. As a T-shirt on sale in the Cap lobby said, “God Save the Queen of Rock & Roll.” Sorry critics and cynics, she may not be the one who needs saving.
