Longtime Patti Smith Group guitarist Lenny Kaye will celebrate his 75th birthday with a hometown NYC show on December 27 at Bowery Ballroom. "Friends" are promised, and while those names are still TBA, Lenny's 70th birthday show at the same venue included a 9-song set from Patti Smith and Her Band, a set of Nuggets songs with fellow Patti Smith band members Jay Dee Daugherty and Tony Shanahan, along with Andy York, plus sets with The Lenny Kaye Connection and Tom Clark.
