Dr Patti Smith, queen of punk, Cavalier of France’s Order of Arts and Letters for her contributions to romanticism, will be appearing as part of the Melbourne International Arts Festival in October! As well as two concerts with the Patti Smith Band, there’s a film of her work by Steven Sebring, a Q&A of the film with Patti and Steven, a free exhibition and a joint performance with Patti and Philip Glass in dedication to the great Allen Ginsberg. Patti in Melbourne! This could rival seeing Regina at the Regent – and that was the best gig I’ve ever been to.
