I spent New Year’s Eve at the cozy Bowery Ballroom with my wife and friends watching this Patti Smith show in which she and Michael Stipe did the Glen Campbell song ‘Wichita Lineman.’
Patti Smith and Her Band play this venue every year for three shows around New Year’s and it looks like 2011 was her last time at the Bowery.
In fact, she sang “The Last Time” by The Stones near the end of the set, which features the words:
Well this could be the last timeThis could be the last timeMaybe the last timeI don’t know.
The good news is that Lenny Kaye, Patti’s guitarist who was kind enough to play my 40th birthday party at Shades of Green Pub, told the New York Times the band will simply move to another location in New York.
“It’s just time to move on,” he said.
