Tips for Today: Courtney Love + Light Asylum + Lincoln Restler


Courtney Love, "And She's Not Even Pretty," Opens at Fred Torres

Ms. Love, a woman of many hats, who we interviewed for our soon-to-be-on-stands May 2012 issue, presents a series of 45 drawings of tormented-looking women tonight at Fred Torres. The pieces are deeply personal, based on her own friends and experiences, and according to a Fred Torres press release, they're "sometimes coy and sexually alluring," and "ultimately speak of her vulnerability and longing for fairytale romance."

Fred Torres, 527 W. 29th St. Opening from 6 to 8 p.m.
