Anyone at this show? How was it? Saw the Crowes at PNC last year and thought they were boring. Way too jammy and Dead-ish.

Hey, Patti Smith! Read *this* comment aloud at your next show!

i went. i thought patti sounded tight, and the sound mix was actually great for her. i took a video of "beneath the southern cross" and the songs she covered from her latest album were great reinventions.

as for the crowes, i am not a fan by any means, but i enjoy their live shows. while they are jammy, chris robinson's energy is undeniable, and the band as a whole really rock.

Patti Smith is really looking like Eddie Vedder.

Has anyone gone to Patti's New Year's shows? Is she happy? Is she snappy? Does she smile?

Im definitely going this year to those NYE shows. Patti looked and sounded great. She also played a Jimi Hendrix medley/jam (Are You Experienced/Third Stone from the Sun), Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit, and closed with Gloria. THe band was excellent as well, Lenny Kaye came out in a monster mask which he took off after first song. The whole set was about 50 minutes, from 8:10 to 9 o'clock.

The Black Crowes were fine, but their set dragged at some points. Some songs just don't stand up to their best material. BUt they were surprisingly fresh considering this is the tail end of a tour. I think their best show, that Ive seen, was the 2006 NYE at MSG show.

Which one is Chris Robinson?

Hahahahah on the Patti/Eddie Vedder call. Hilarious.

Does anyone know of any other New Years Eve shows? Doesn't seem to be much announced yet.

The Black Crowes are unfairly punished. They are a bit jammy, but you can't deny the charisma of Chris, not to mention his harp playing and voice. Good crunchy rock with all the fixins.

What time does Daft Punk ring in the new year?

$10 says patti smith is chris robinson's mom in real life

Patti Smith is a fake cunt a load of students did a lot of work for here at my college in return for a talk by her. She said she couldn't make it because she had an aversion to traveling by road yet she managed to get to England on a plane. She let us down ith possibly the worst excuse I've ever heard. Why are we constantly looking at ageing rich rock stars to look for hope in they sold out in the 60's.

Anon 9:36: Patti, like many life-long New Yorkers, doesn't have a driver's license and doesn't know how to drive. She was telling you the truth.

Caught patti's show last nite at 930 club in DC. Yes she is smiling and zippy. Quite proud of her son Jack who now shares guitar duties with Lenny. Played 2 1/2 hours - very gracious and interactive with the audience and did not dump on the fact that we are DC not NYC. AND as expected she had something to say about Bhutto in the form of a 10 minute musical dialogue which was very cool. Highlight for me was probably White Rabbit with a very funny intro based on her trip to the opera in Italy a few nights before. Her voice was a little spent by the end of the night - good luck with those back-to-back-to-back gigs in NYC starting tonite, patti! Oh yeah, one last thing - does she always spit lick that on stage????
