Today, December 30, marks Patti Smith’s 70th birthday. She is still going strong, remaining as relevant as ever. Happy birthday!
This bootleg captures Patti Smith performing at the Boarding House in San Francisco, on 15 February 1976. The Boarding House was a club in downtown San Francisco that held about 500 people.
The show was broadcasted on FM radio and illustrates perfectly the strange power of this pioneering band and its dynamic, talented and foresighted lead singer and main songwriter.
