A low-key Courtney Love (search) made a brief court appearance and was told to return Oct. 27 for a preliminary hearing to determine if she stands trial for allegedly attacking a woman with a liquor bottle.

Love, who strode into court wearing a miniskirt and sweater over tights and thigh-high boots, softly answered "yes" Thursday when asked if she agreed to the next court date.

She was mobbed by TV and still photographers as she left the courthouse. A team of sheriff's deputies was assigned to keep the media crowd under control.

"Look this way, Courtney!" one person shouted. But the 40-year-old singer-actress hurried to her car without posing or commenting.

Love has pleaded not guilty to the felony assault charge and is free on $150,000 bail. She allegedly attacked the woman at an ex-boyfriend's home in April.
