Patti Smith – SVA Theatre, New Yorker Festival

Last night we attended the New Yorker Festival to see Patti Smith interviewed by David Remnick (Magazine, Editor-In-Chief).

We lined up early at the School of Visual Arts Theater on West 23rd Street in the Chelsea section of New York City. We watched as Norman Lear, sporting his classic straw hat was assisted to his SUV (he was interviewed prior to Patti).

Our seats turned out fantastic as we ended up sitting fourth row center.

Patti Smith lovingly read us a chapter “Clock with No Hands” about her adventures with Fred Sonic Smith. It was her first public reading from M Train her latest book (out on 10/6/15).

The Guardian covered the event. I refer you to their synopsis here. I found it very representative of how we felt about the event.

The special surprise was when David Remnick stepped out of character and performed on electric guitar to back Patti Smith on “Because The Night”. Our favorite song 🙂

 

Have I doubt when I’m alone
Love is a ring, the telephone
