"It's an indisputable fact that the Barclays Center has one of the best veggie burgers in Brooklyn, somehow." - Joey Arak
""Thank you Jay-Z... Crazy Horse!". - Neil Young's final words on stage at the Barclays Center tonight." - BrooklynVegan
Crazy Horse (more by Gretchen Robinette)
As you know, Neil Young and Crazy Horse aren't really switching up the setlists on this tour. In fact, though some cities get a different song in the encore, the setlist at Barclays Center in Brooklyn last night was exactly the same as the one they played at MSG. Regardless, it was a great Brooklyn show, especially for those who were seeing it for the first time. If you missed both area shows, you can still always head to Atlantic City this week.
Patti Smith and band (Lenny Kaye included) however did mix it up during her powerful 8pm opening set. She ended with "Gloria" like she did at MSG, but we also got her moving cover of Neil Young's "It's a Dream" and hit "Because the Night."
Full setlists for Neil and Patti and some videos below...

"Not even kidding. lou reed watched @dasracist perform tonight & flipped the fuck out. at carnegie hall. how was your night?" - El-P
"The night wrapped up with Lenny Kaye leading the Patti Smith band through a brief tribute to the garage-rock compilation Nuggets, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and Lou Reed, who performed three songs. Reed conducted the string quartet and the drummer to improvise with him at moments, which felt awkward in the beginning; the ending, however--as the string quartet jammed in tandem with Smith's guitarists and Reed himself--was pretty impressive. At the very end Laurie Anderson and the whole evening's cast returned to the stage for a curtain call, during which the room sang "Happy Birthday" to Philip Glass."

Lenny Kaye with Patti Smith at E2NY 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)

Happy New Year! (artskooldamage)
Michael Stipe joined his friend Patti Smith at Bowery Ballroom on New Year's Eve for what was also the end of her final year at the venue...
On New Year's Eve, Patti Smith announced from the stage at the Bowery Ballroom that the concert was her last -- at the Bowery Ballroom.Catch Patti this February with Philip Glass at the Tune-In Music Festival at the Park Avenue Armory. Stay tuned for info on where Patti will spend her birthday this year.
For 14 years, the three-pack of shows by Patti Smith and Her Band in the final week of December has proved to be a reliably exhilarating way to usher out the old and ring in the new. If it's not the Allmans at the Beacon Theater, it's in the same area code. It's cozy: the smallish Ballroom accommodates fewer than 600. It's egalitarian: tickets are general admission, mostly standing room and reasonably priced. And it's personal: the shows always include one on Dec. 30, to celebrate Ms. Smith's birthday (she turned 65 on Friday).
After the last show -- an excellent night, with many special touches, including Michael Stipe singing "Wichita Lineman" -- Lenny Kaye, Ms. Smith's lead guitarist and general rock subversive, confirmed that the band would still perform, but at some other location. "It's just time to move on," he said. [NY Times]

Don Hill RIP (photo by Julian Ungano)
Steve Lewis: Don Hill has passed, and a lot of people are getting together to celebrate his life. Since Don Hill went down, there's not as many places where we can all gather. And let's face it, Don Hill owned the place. He booked it, he answered the phones, and, we suppose, at the end of the night swept up the place...Michael T, tell me why you're involved in this event, and what did Don Hill mean to you?Don Hill (RIP) will be remembered December 15th when a band of musicians will gather at Irving Plaza to celebrate his life and legacy. The show features performances from some of the musicians that blessed his night spot including names like Richard Butler (Psychedelic Furs), Royston Langdon (Spacehog), David Johansen (NY Dolls), Manitoba, Jesse Malin & the St. Marks Social, Lenny Kaye, The Toilet Boys, and many many others.
Michael T: I met Don back in the eighties at Cat Club when I was very young. He opened Don Hill's in the early nineties, and I was one of the first persons to perform there. Later, in the second run of Don Hill's, I started to do my party, Rated X, there. It was really the first time that Don and I had worked together on a regular basis. It was super easy. Don was always the same. He was Don. It's so rare in the business to have someone that's just steady, where you know what you're going to get out of him. We had a great working relationship, and a comfortable personal relationship. He was a straight shooter.
At 1am the party turns into Squeezebox. Tickets are still available. Flyer below...

Patti Smith @ Escape to NY
Patti Smith is playing a free show at Webster Hall on September 8 in commemoration of the tenth anniversary of 9/11. France Inter, the French National Public Radio Channel, is hosting the free event. Email email@example.com to RSVP (required). The show is at 8 PM. Check Webster Hall's website for more details.
Patti headlined the first night of the three-turned-two day festival Escape to NY in the Hamptons on Friday. A full set of pictures from the shortened weekend is coming soon, but here are the shots of Patti and band who also recently played a NY show at Castle Clinton.. They continue below...
On Saturday (7/30), Lincoln Center Out of Doors in partnership with the Ponderosa Stomp, put on a remarkable day of music and music history under the name of "She's Got The Power, a Girl Group Extravaganza." Within its 10 (free) hours, the event included a 3-part, 4-hour panel of "Girl Talk" that presented Lesley Gore, members of the Angels and the Exciters, Seymour Stein (co-founder of Sire Records) and many studio musicians who worked closely with (r'n'r hall of famer) Ellie Greenwich.
The concert was organized into 3 parts covering 5 hours. First was a revue of girl group singers. Arlene Smith, of the Chantels, performed magnificently from her motorized wheelchair, commanding the stage by zipping back and forth. Then there were extended sets from headliners La La Brooks of the Crystals, Lesley Gore and Ronnie Spector (the Ronettes), and finally a tribute by the evening's artists to girl-group-godmother Ellie Greenwich.
This was not your father's PBS Doo-Wop special. Although the passing of Amy Winehouse was noted by Ronnie Spector, who performed part of 'Back to Black', it was more of a (tragic) footnote to the larger spirit of survival, brilliance, toughness and female chutzpah on parade. Many performers commented both publicly and privately that the spirit of Ellie Greenwich was the guiding force of the day. As stellar performance after performance dredged up tingly globs of our collective memory, the realization grew of just how much we owe to these artists, producers and songwriters who had just as much influence on the Beatles, Stones and other British Invasion bands as did the blues.

"Patti Smith was amazing. Excellent crowd. Great energy. Full moon. Fantastic weather. Castle Clinton's 200th anniversary. River 2 River. Ah!" - J.M.F.
Godmother of Punk Patti Smith concluded the free Castle Clinton 2011 season last night (7/14) when she played the outdoor Manhattan venue filled to capacity. Her two hour set opened with the bombastic 1978 single "Because The Night," but dove into a fair amount of her earlier, more adventurous work including favorites like "Ghost Dance," "Pissing in a River," "Land," "Aint It Strange," and a few others. She also played a number of notable covers, including Neil Young's "Helpless," which she recorded for her cover album Twelve, and fellow NYC's alt-scene vet Lou Reed's "Perfect Day," which showed up on the album's accompanying EP. She also tackled Jim Carroll's "People Who Died," and the much more modern Adele's "Rolling in the Deep."
Catch Patti again when she comes to Southampton, NY for Escape to New York.
Patti Smith Group guitarist Lenny Kaye, who was scheduled to also make an appearance at the Johnny Thunders birthday celebration at Bowery Electric after the Castle Clinton show, will be a special guest on Saturday (7/16) at Mercury Lounge with The Fleshtones and The Insomniacs. Tickets are available.
More pictures and setlist from the Castle Clinton show below...
Johnny Thunders would turn 59 Friday (7/15) and his birthday is being celebrated tonight (7/14) at D-Generationer Jesse Malin's LES club Bowery Electric. There will be a number of artists performing including Heartbreaker Walter Lure's The Waldos, Oddball Alison Gordy, Pillbox who are apparently reuniting, and many others that are listed below. There will also reportedly be some special guests including ex-Dead Boy Jeff Magnum (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH JEFF MANGUM OF NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL), Jesse Malin, Andy Shernoff of The Dictators, Lenny Kaye and many others.
Many of those playing appeared on the 2009 "Skykrebs Records"-released "Born To Lose" tribute 3CD Boxed set. That includes Krebs & The Maynard G's, The Waldos and Alison Gordy.
Trouser Press writes of Pillbox:
Before there was a Strokes to make it safe as milk, the snarly glam punk spirit of the Stooges, New York Dolls and Dead Boys lived for a time in the skinnyassed tattooed bodies of Pillbox, a New York quartet which offered a skankier, more menacing and less theatrical alternative to the likeminded and better-known D Generation.Check out the Pillbox video for "Holly" below.
D Generation plays reunion shows in September at bigger venues.
Lenny Kaye, who will supposedly be a special guest at the show tonight, is a longtime member of the Patti Smith Group. Patti Smith plays a free show at Castle Clinton tonight (7/15). Don't forget that, "FREE TICKETS AVAILABLE FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED AT THE GATE STARTING AT 5PM. DOORS OPEN AT 6PM." People are already in line as of 2pm. It would be cool of Patti ended up at the Johnny Thunders party afterwards too.

Yoko Ono's Secret Piece (1953)Study the above piece of sheet music and join Yoko Ono in Central Park Tuesday morning!

Celebrate the summer solstice with Yoko Ono's meditative Secret Piece, at sunrise in Central Park.

At 8AM we will all return to Columbus Circle for hot green tea.
UPDATE: Apparently Yoko didn't even go to her own event. ZINGARA says "I woke up really early this morning thinking that different musicians where going to get together and play a Yoko Ono tone. instead i got there and everybody was on their own wandering around the park like a homeless person. There was someone there but as soon you sign your name they send you away." Lori Zimmer adds, "woke @ 330 to go to central pk... was handed a map with little explanation. very disappointed, not much explanation, no yoko, green tea from starbucks out of styrofoam cups after 3 hours...."

"Basketball Diaries author Carroll's slightly rough posthumous novel about a famous painter's breakdown begins as painter Billy Wolfram has a psychotic episode, wanders about the Central Park petting zoo, threatens strangers, and is picked up and committed to a mental hospital for observation. Upon his release, Billy returns home and goes into "reclusion," brooding on events in his past (such as his mother's death), watching old TV shows, and receiving visits from a Central Park zoo raven who talks to Billy about the flood (the raven was on Noah's ark), art, and the emptiness in Billy's life. Other than his assistant, Marta, Billy's only real visitor is his childhood friend, rock star Denny, leaving him plenty of time for introspection that leads back to Kennedy's assassination, which coincided with Billy's mother catching him masturbating. Since then, Billy has frozen out his sexual feelings, and, as it turns out, Marta would love to thaw them. Although Carroll's prose is uneven--clever and profound sentences jostle awkwardly with lumbering, bathos-soaked platitudes--and the narrative tension is rather slack, this is a heartfelt portrait of a New York original by a New York original."That book was just released and fellow downtown icons Patti Smith and Lenny Kaye will help publicize it and honor Jim at an event at the Union Square Barnes & Noble on Thursday, November 18th at 7pm.
Meanwhile you can catch Patti and Lenny at an event happening at Southpaw in Brooklyn TONIGHT (11/11), which strangely still has tickets available, unlike Patti's three shows coming up at Bowery Ballroom.
Lenny Kaye recently appeared at City Winery with Bob Mould who played a show at the Rock Shop right after. Video of Jim Carroll playing with Lenny Kaye years ago, below...

Sean Lennon & Irina Lazareanu @ Milk Studios
...according to Sean Lennon and model/musician/birthday-girl Irina Lazareanu who brought up their sadness at Pete not being at the party multiple times throughout the night. Sean said that Pete made it as far as JFK, but was met by cops who forced him to turn around and fly home.
Irina Lazareanu, Adam Green & Charlotte Kemp Muhl
The party was hosted by Irina Lazareanu (both Pete and Sean's ex girlfriend) (she was even engaged to Pete). Irina, in addition to chain smoking, performed with Sean, Sean's current girlfriend and bandmate Charlotte Kemp Muhl and Adam Green (and Adam's girlfriend (?) Cory Kennedy who played tambourine on a song). Pete was supposed to be a part of the supergroup too. They said they rehearsed with him in mind (at which point Sean said he could now get metal and they played a Sabbathy tune). They also played an Adam Green song, a Bob Dylan song, the Twist, and some other stuff.
Sean, BP Fallon & Lenny Kaye
BP Fallon opened the show both as DJ and then as frontman of his own band that included Lenny Kaye on guitar and Sean Lennon on drums. Not counting the photo of Leigh Lezark on the wall, that they were supposedly selling for charity, I didn't see any Misshapes there (they were also on the flyer). Paul Simon and Yoko Ono, both rumored as unannounced guests, were nowhere to be found either. Someone told me Bruce Willis was there, but I didn't see him. Oh yeah, and Adam Green had a black eye. More pics and stuff coming later.
UPDATE: Two videos below...

"Pairings is a unique 'blend' at City Winery: an intimate concert series served with fine wine that will take place on City Winery's main stage every Thursday evening, starting in January 2009. Each concert will be preceded by an optional tasting or private dinner, followed by personal performances from some of today's most respected musicians."Suzanne Vega and Lenny Kaye play the next Paring on January 15th. Then Mike Doughty & Tony Scherr Trio, and then Jill Sobule & Julia Sweeney.
Venue owner Michael Dorf (of Knitting Factory fame) made an introduction, and then Steve Earle's set kicked off with "Christmas In Washington" which included a multiple minute story about Obama and the upcoming inauguration followed by "My Old Friend the Blues." The rest of his 90-or-so minute set was spattered with old ("Copperhead Road", "Jerusalem", "Guitar Town") and new ("Down Here Below", "Tennessee Blues", "Days Aren't Hard Enough").
Allison Moorer opened and then later joined her husband Steve on stage for some songs. Her set ended with a cover of Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come" which had everyone cheering, when she said during the intro, "It is nice to have a new president that can...talk."
Earle also mentioned his next CD will be an album of all covers by his friend Townes Van Zandt (RIP) who his oldest son, Justin Townes Earle (also a musician), is named after.
