Courtney Love, Liz Warren and Mitt Romney Walk Into a House...

We told you yesterday about the 4-BR, 2-BA, 2,222-square-foot house at 10 Burt Street in Dorchester that just hit the market for $369,000. Well, it's being sold by publicist Joyce Linehan, who in a former life managed bands like the Smithereens and the Lemonheads, and ran the East Coast headquarters for Sub Pop Records out of 10 Burt, which she's owned since 1992 (when she bought it for $90,000). Thus a ridiculous real estate past in that endearing wish-we-had-been-there sort of way. Take it away, Phoenix:

Among the dozens of musicians who stayed at the house over the years were Bikini Kill, the Flaming Lips, Smashing Pumpkins, Elliott Smith, Ted Leo, Superchunk, the Jesus Lizard, Earth, Sunny Day Real Estate, the Young Fresh Fellows, Unrest, Tsunami, the Supersuckers, the Fastbacks, Vic Chesnutt, Stereolab, Cobra Verde, and the Detroit Cobras. [Eddie] Vedder came with his wife’s band Hovercraft; he didn’t stay overnight, but Linehan recalls him hanging out and watching TV. The guestbook at 10 Burt Street has also been signed by the comedian Fred Armisen, the author Michael Patrick MacDonald, and by Deval Patrick and Elizabeth Warren. Oh, and Mitt Romney? Someone signed his name into the guestbook as a joke (at least that's how the legend goes—we like to imagine the former governor throwing on Ten in the living room and just... just getting it).
