Lights On At The Electric


“Don’t I look like Mariah Carey right now?” Courtney Love asked her audience at Manhattan’s Hiro Ballroom last night, where she was performing for Scott Lipps’ One Management ten-year anniversary party. “I’m wearing my first piece of swag ever—a 1990 Calvin Klein vest.”

Courtney could hardly be confused with Carey, but it was Love the audience really wanted anyways. After she busted out one of the first songs she ever wrote (with Lipps backing her up on the drums), ”Skinny Little Bitch,” the crowd of mostly models (plus Adrian Grenier, Russell Simmons, and Johan Lindeberg) chanted for “Violet” repeatedly, it was a request to which she eventually obliged after pausing to comment about Frances Bean Cobain’s glam photos that recently surfaced. “Did anyone see pictures of my fucking only child last week?” she asked. “Thank God she didn’t get that nose job—’Skinny Little Bitch’ is for her, she’s just so cool.”

After the show, guests flocked next door to Nur Khan’s latest venture, the not-yet-opened Electric Room at the Dream Downtown. Everyone wanted a glimpse of the “new Don Hill’s,” as Lipps called it, but most left still wondering because the space only allows for a maximum of 100 people. Inside, Love held court with her band members from the Union Jack leather couches in the center of the small room, which was decked out with graffiti art and photos by Sante D’Orazio. Of his newest project since the closing of the legendary Don Hill’s, Khan told, “I was going for a cool, 1996 vibe in here—everyone else seems to be stuck in the eighties right now.” He added, “With this place, it’s going to be an all-night affair and the party will only be just getting started at 2 a.m.”
