So, tonight I saw Patti Smith at Tipitina's. Here's a story to demonstrate how hilarious she was: A girl screams, "Patti!" Patti responds with the to-the-point and awesomely punk rawk, "What?" Then the woman throws this gaudy silver bracelet on stage. Patti picks it up and flatly says, "Just my style," and sets in atop the bass drum, continuing with the next song.
Oh, and then she invited the guitarist from the Seeds on stage. And then Peter Buck. And then Michael Stipe. And did I mention that Lenny Kaye was there? Because he was.
