Patti Smith+Jesse Paris+Eric Hoegemeyer
"April is the cruellest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain" and snow, as the case may be. T.S. Eliot's timeless modernist epic, The Waste Land, is particularly apropos this year in the wake of the polar vortex. In homage to this "Sorry not sorry" spring, Patti Smith joins daughter Jesse Paris Smith and Eric Hoegemeyer for an evening of meditations on nature and ephemerality featuring Dickinson, Whitman, Sebald, and other remembrances of things past. Expect a tribute to two of Smith's former collaborators, Lou Reed and Pete Seeger.
