Patti Smith at Bowery Ballroom (05-01-1999)


On May 1, 1999, the "punk poet laureate," Patti Smith, played with her band at the Bowery Ballroom!   This would be Smith's seventh of many appearances at the lower east side venue, as in 1998, she began a string of New Year's Eve performances that lasted until 2012.   The Bowery Ballroom began hosting concerts in 1998, so Patti played a whopping seven gigs at the joint in it's very short existence!!!
