Is a Horse Patty like a Cow Pat?
While waiting in line I saw a guy go by with a Patty Smith Horses shirt. I was wondering if it was Landhorses. The line started moving right when I was trying to type on my phone.
No.......I was wearing a Gordon Lightfoot t-shirt.
I got a lot of odd looks.
I've been exploring her back catalog. I think my favorites are "To Bring You My Love" and "Dry." It so nice listening to challenging music that exudes raw emotion rather than the slick, hyper-polished "radio friendly" crap.
Her commitment to her material is one of the reasons she is at the tip-top of my favorites list.
Plus this other guy was walking towards the end of the line just before the they started letting us in. I imagine you were at the front of the line?
For those who like her here is a show professionnaly filmed and broadcasted in Lyon, France. I must say I'm not fond of her last works and prefer the punky attitude when she began (the crap, I guess)remembering a good live show in Bourges, France at the "To Bring You My Love" tour.

It may last two days streaming so don't wait too long. don't know if everyone will be able to watch it though.
She still has a good voice. But well all these instruments and so poor harmonies... But, look, just trying to be friendly.

Plus the Forecastle Festival in July in Louisville where I'll be finally seeing her for the first time! (probably Pitchfork too, lots of artists do both)
Do you think she will be doing more or less the same set as this past summer?
Wow. Massey Hall. A dream come true for her Toronto fans (and she hasn't been here in more than 12 years...)
Hope can I get a good ticket!
if you are talking about the show at vic theater, i was there
Yes, that was it. How was it?
um, pretty damn great!
Oo-weeee, thanks for the heads-up! I am so there, and I even found out before ticket sales start, for a change. Polly Jean in April, Nick Cave in June, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh [rolling around on the floor].
Yep.......front row both nights.
This is a brand new place that's opening in March. Capacity supposedly 1,800. I'll hopefully go.
It'll be my first time seeing both of them so I really feel the same!
Same here, and I wasn't sure they'd be back around anytime soon.
She hasn't played Houston in ages. Wow, I may have to road trip for this.
I bought a ticket for Royal Oak (they are on presale with "romtlive" as a password fyi) to coincide with a family visit to Cleveland the weekend before.
I can't believe she's not playing DC!! Damn!!
Yay, a ticket for me! Bless you for the promo code, and see you in Royal Oak!
You making the Philly show in April?
Posted in another thread that it looks like the presale tickets for the Greek sold out rapidly.
Yes, that upset me too! I'm in DC. But I bought tickets to the Brooklyn show. I read in the New York Times about the brand new venue. That sounds exciting.
Richmond is closer, but I don't know anyone there, plus it doesn't seem as fun as going to Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Surprisingly there were no issues with getting tickets. It used to be quite hard to get tickets to see her. But I guess the gap in touring has made her less popular.
But great for me! So excited!
