Patti Smith at Castle Clinton in 2011 (more by Tamara Porras)
Patti Smith

Browse our full NYC show calendar for all of tonight's shows. Here are some highlights...

Patti Smith, Belle Ghoul @ Webster Hall
The Godmother of Punk still lives up to that title, delivering fantastic sets that span her almost-4-decade-long career which includes a number of stone cold classics. As usual, she's celebrating the end of the year in her hometown of NYC with sold out Webster Hall shows tonight and tomorrow.

Prince @ Mohegan Sun Arena
Prince never slows down, having spent most of 2013 playing epic-length shows and releasing a series of digital singles that found him regaining some creative juice (and his classic sound). Tonight's the last of three holiday shows he's got lined up at this casino resort.

Punch Brothers, Willie Watson @ Bowery Ballroom
Brooklyn bluegrass band Punch Brothers kick off their three-night lead-up to New Year's run at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets are still available.

John Zorn Improv Night @ The Stone
The Stone's founder and artistic director John Zorn is in the midst of his annual Improv Week at the venue. Tonight's show is probably the most high profile of the week with Thurston Moore and Yeah Yeah Yeah's drummer Brian Chase, plus Mary Halvorson (guitar), James Ilgenfritz (bass), Joe Morris (guitar), Okkyung Lee (cello), Erik Friedlander (cello), Jay Campbell (cello), Pauline Kim (violin), Craig Taborn (piano) and Zorn himself on sax.

The Bouncing Souls, Boy Sets Fire, The Flatliners, Restorations @ The Stone Pony
NJ punk heroes The Bouncing Souls kick off the return of their four-night 'Home for the Holidays' shows at home state venue The Stone Pony tonight. Like every night, there's three openers, all chosen by The Souls, so expect a well-curated bill of punk each night.

Vaz, Pulverize The Sound, Psalm Zero @ Death by Audio
This is a great bill of the heavy, noisy, and weird with local noise rockers Vaz (mems. Hammerhead), experimental trio Pulverize the Sound (aka Peter Evans, Mike Pride, Tim Dahl), and industrial duo Psalm Zero (mems. Extra Life, Castevet).

Phish @ MSG
Love 'em or hate 'em, Phish's New Year's run at Madison Square Garden is always quite the event for jam fans, and it continues tonight, with one show a night leading up to New Year's Eve.

For all of tonight's shows, and tomorrow's, check out our full NYC show calendar.

Prince sucks.

Also that John Zorn write up is wrong, it doesn't say anywhere on the stone website that Thurston Moore or Brian chase will be there....

OK, serious question here:
Does Patti Smith really try to be so fugly or does it just come naturally for her?

Posted by Anonymous | December 29, 2013 5:39 PM

I'm sure your grandmother knows all about Patti Smith, just go ask her. Way back in the day Patty Smith was sorta famous or something. All old people look fugly, it's not just her.

I like Mookie references, but he was #1, not #42.

Relax 11:36, it was funny and required no more poetic license than an average day in the White House Press Room.
