Patti Smith plays HSBG

Patti Smith, originally uploaded by deanv41.

"Jesus died for somebody's sins but not mine..."

Ten years ago, i saw Patti Smith play in Seattle for the opening of Experience Music Project where i worked at the time. She was incredible there beneath the Space Needle invoking the spirits of Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain and also reminding the crowd not to let EMP slip into tourist trap meaninglessness.
There she was again today gracing the Tower of Gold Stage at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass as passionate and energizing as ever.
