no audience shots? How many people where there to see this hippie fart dust?

Does anyone pay for tickets to see her? She played Castle Clinton for free. E2Ny was pretty much all comped, and now she is playing a free webster hall show.

^ Idiots.

she sells out bowery shows at end of year, so she could charge. agree w/ 12:22. ever think patti may actually have a conscience?

Posted by donn | August 8, 2011 12:28 PM

12:21- kill yourself, you clueless ass. She is a fucking legend

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2011 12:32 PM

notice the conspicuous absence of (empty) crowd shots

@12:21 (1)

I was hoping for audience shots as well.

My guess is it's not the first time Patti has played in front of about 120 people. She still does bring her craziness regardless of the crowd.

Man, David Johanssen sure isn't aging well.

This looked like an amazing show. Too bad I missed it

although it is CERTAIN that 12:20, 12:21, 1:05 and 1"10 will have their lives curtailed dramatically (i.e. shortened a LOT), i would be happy to make that happen personally.

i'm in jamaica, ny and would be happy to meet ANY of these 4 posters anytime today to give them a final beat down right on jamaica ave.

bring it fuck heads. bring it. i DARE you.

hahah homeboy wrote this sentence:

"although it is CERTAIN that 12:20, 12:21, 1:05 and 1"10 will have their lives curtailed dramatically (i.e. shortened a LOT"

da fuck? Curarated lulz

and THEN tried to be a tough guy.

AND he lives in Jamaica and is apparently a Patti Smith fan.

haha, he is probably 50+ and definitely broke.

No one's scared.

Man, Vigo The Carpathian sure isn't aging well.

This comments thread (and most others on this blog) needs to have its life curtailed dramatically.

"This comments thread (and most others on this blog) needs to have its life curtailed dramatically."

Truth.

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2011 2:08 PM

"This comments thread (and most others on this blog) needs to have its life curtailed dramatically."

the tense issues in this sentence are staggering. I see why you live in Jamaica.

^you better be careful. some old man in queens is going to kick your ass

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2011 2:42 PM

There is only one troll on this thread. I'd love to join the nice man from Jamaica in kicking the living shit out of him but sadly we'll never know his identity unless bv helps us a bit by giving out his IP.

I'll bet you $20 the kid doesn't live in ny, though.

Rsvp'd to patti - hope to get in. :-)

why do dumbass sensitive vaginas always think it's one person writing all the comments? I can guarantee you that in this thread it was more than one person.

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2011 3:03 PM

Nope... Just you. How's the weather in whatever shithole town you live in?

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2011 3:13 PM

Definitely NOT just him. NYC

Hey asswipe 3:00 - wrong on all counts. Sorry that spidey sense is so lacking. actually, no I'm not - in my experience, dullards need to get embarrassed publicly in order for them to correct their foolish behavior.

Hey other "trolls" - how much you wanna bet that this assface lives in Manhattan at some toney address like UES or TriBeCa?

patti smith - you're napalm, you write with your hand but it's rimbaud's arm
