Patti Smith BDay Bowery Poetry Club Tomorrow at 10 pm

The big shoe tomorrow night at the Bowery Poetry Club is going to be great, for sure! It's a very special show celebrating Patti Smith's 60th birthday. Patti's performing Friday, Saturday and Sunday (New Year's Eve) at the Bowery Ballroom, so this is a great way to get the weekend started. Here's what organizer Jackie Sheeler has to say:

"we will have everything from rimbaud to baudelaire to patti rant soundtracks to dancers to accordions to a patticento (that's a new poem made out of patti lyrics from all over the place, with a background of amazing pattiloops put together by The Bass Player From Hand Job, who is a wonderful producer & musician).

"patti, lenny, and tony know about the party, and lenny said if time permits he will stop by. (they have practice that night, for the bowery shows.) a friend of patti's mentioned that jackson will be in town and said he thought this was an interesting thing, so maybe he'll come by. we've invited a lot of high-profile punk folks, but even if none of them show up this is going to be an INCREDIBLE night! we're also raffling off a number of patti rarities -- such as a signed mint copy of Ha Ha Houdini -- and everybody in the raffle gets an mp3 cd of live or hard-to-find or even unknown patti tracks.

"come on out! there's no cover, just purchase a few beverages to support the club that is hosting this event. full details at "

Line up includes:
Meagan Brothers & Mike Fornatale
Christine Goodman
Amy Ouzoonian with Colossal M'Lady
Kathi Georges
Lisa Gruenberger
Michael McHugh
Nelson Alexander & Moira Smith
Janet Hamill has written a poem for the occasion,
to be performed by Mary Fries

The club is at 308 Bowery, foot of First Street, between Houston & Bleecker, across the street from CBGBs. 212.614.0505

Hope to see you there.
