Tonight. Patti effing Smith and Lenny Kaye. At Southpaw. Here's what we know.
Patti Smith is playing a cheap ($20) intimate benefit show to support the young and the needy. She is acting as a mentor to young "millennial" musicians who will join her onstage. Patti is playing her own material, and doing duets.
The event's an acoustic benefit show for Fortnight Journal, "an online project fighting the recession--and 'failure to launch' accusations--by pairing promising upstarts with luminary mentors." The rest of the lineup and details are here. It's 21+, which means some of you promising young Millennials are SOL.
And, since this is your only 'SUP for the week, there's also an indie dance electro night happening at The Fifth Estate from 10pm-4am on Saturday. FIPS reader Michele is spinning, so drink a lot and go. The end. Comments are open.
