Patti Smith at Carnegie Hall (more by Chris La Putt)
Park Slope venue Southpaw will host Shilpa Ray & Her Happy Hookers, Outernational, and Patti Smith & Lenny Kaye on November 11th. Tickets for this 21+ acoustic Fortnight Journal Benefit are on sale. The show is one of four upcming dates for Patti Smith, who will also play a trio of sold-out dates at Bowery Ballroom leading up to the new year (12/29, 12/30, 12/31).
The Southpaw show is one of two lined up for Shilpa Ray & Her Happy Hookers, who will play Pianos three days prior with Zambri and Arpline as part of a residency for Hooray for Earth who are also on the bill. A few weeks later, they'll hit the road with a reunited Cornershop to play a string of dates, but will not be on board when the band plays Irving Plaza (on 11/19, tickets).
