The other night, I met Guggi of the Virgin Prunes.  The Virgin Prunes were a post-punk band that often used to open for U2 in the 80s.  They disbanded about 15 years ago, but reformed for one night to take part in former member Gavin Friday’s AIDS benefit at Carnegie Hall.

The hot mess Courtney Love appeared at Carnegie Hall on October 4, 2009 to be a part of Gavin Friday’s AIDS benefit to help raise money for the disease.  She introduced the reunion of Gavin Friday’s old band and former U2 opening act, The Virgin Prunes (who haven’t played together in over 15 years), plus she also performed, both with Friday and actress/singer Scarlett Johansson.

See pictures of all that after the jump.
