Patti Smith

Patti Smith will play Bowery Ballroom on June 5. Tickets to the Bowery show go on sale Friday (5/17). The show is part of the celebration of the Federico Garcia Lorca Birthday Celebration which has been going on since early April and continues through July with events thoughout the city:

Lorca in New York: A Celebration is the largest-ever festival in North America celebrating the work of acclaimed Spanish poet and playwright Federico García Lorca. With more than two dozen events throughout Manhattan, it focuses on the brief but prolific period (1929-1930), during which Lorca came to New York and wrote one of his most significant works, Poet in New York. Presented by Fundación Federico García Lorca with support from Acción Cultural Española, it is anchored in the premiere of Back Tomorrow: Federico García Lorca / Poet in New York at The New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building (April 5-July 20) – an exhibition bringing together for the first time manuscripts, drawings, letters, and photos Lorca generated while in the city.

June 5 is Lorca’s actual birthday and Smith previously celebrated Lorca with a concert performed at his home in Granada, the Huerta de San Vicente, in 2010.

She’ll also perform on September 20 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for a tribute to Hildegard of Bingen, the “twelfth-century German writer, composer, philosopher, visual artist, mystic, Benedictine abbess, visionary, and polymath.” Tickets to that show are still available. All Patti Smith tour dates are below.

Patti Smith played Stubb’s in Austin at the end of April (4/30) and there are photos from that show in this post.
