“Impassioned enviro rant by Patti Smith near the end of her concert last night at Bowery Ballroom in NYC. Happy b-day, Patti.” – TheEcoist

i’ve ever seen” – beatrice rothbaum

Patti Smith

Patti Smith celebrated her 64th birthday at Bowery Ballroom last night, 12/30. It was her second of three shows in a row. The third happens tonight, 12/31 – Patti’s 12th New Years Eve show at the venue in a row. How were the shows so far this year?

On February 16th Patti makes another NYC appearance, but this time it looks like it will be more speaking than singing…

In celebration of her memoir Just Kids, Patti Smith takes center stage for this solo event where she discusses this impactful book, recollections of her remarkable relationship with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe and remembrances of New York City in the late ’60s and ’70s. The legendary American artist offers a never before-seen glimpse of her moving story of youth, friendship and sings some songs. Smith brings the same unique, lyrical quality to Just Kids as she has the rest of her formidable body of work–from her influential 1975 album, Horses, to her visual art and poetry.

A book signing will follow this event.

Tickets are on sale for the 92Y event.

Earlier this month Patti made an appearance on the Colbert Report. As Colbert’s website described it, “Patti Smith gives advice to young people who decide to throw away their lives and become artists.” Check out video of that, below…
