Courtney Love's influence on women and music will be honored at the Pioneering People fundraiser on October 27. The event, held at Basilica Hudson in Hudson, New York, will feature appearances by R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe, actress Chloë Sevigny, Aaron Dessner among plenty of other artists.

“Courtney’s legacy is vital to the voice of women in our culture," former Hole band mate and bassist Melissa Auf der Maur said in a statement. "The passion she brings to her life and art fuels and inspires the long fought battle for the empowerment of alternative voices as they take center stage at last!”

The benefit, which will help independent voices in the arts, will shed light “all of the ways that Love has influenced culture and inspired women and marginalized people for almost three decades," according to the Basilica Hudson's website.
