Patti Smith at Fort Tilden, Rockaway

Patti Smith and James Franco read poetry and performed at Fort Tilden as part of MoMA PS1's celebration of Rockaway. I only caught the end of Franco reading his poems. But I was blown away by Patti Smith and Lenny Kaye's performance. They did five songs, including "Wing" (my favorite), "Redondo Beach", "Pissing in a River" and a rousing and marvelous "People Have the Power." It was a great set, a great mini concert, and, as always, I felt grateful and privileged to be in Patti's audience.
