Hole in My Heart

I suppose for every Q&A session with Lisa Kudrow about "The Comeback" you hear about (thanks, Daryl), you're bound to miss something -- or a dozen things -- equally tantalizing, such as the reunion of Hole last night at MoMA. (Ouch! That hurt.) What could bring former bandmates Courtney Love, Eric Erlandson, Melissa auf der Maur and Patty Schemel -- who haven't played together in 13 years, unless by play you mean "sue" -- together after all this time? MoMA's screening of "Hit So Hard," P. David Ebersole's new documentary chronicling the life -- and near death -- of Schemel, the band's heroin-loving drummer. The film and the evening sound incredible. Schemel lived with Love and Kurt Cobain and was filming constantly, including the sessions of "Celebrity Skin" during which she quit the band under mysterious circumstances for good. Trailer below. Gothamist has the full report HERE
