Without fail, Patti Smith’s annual performances at the Met’s Gracey Rainey Rogers auditorium are among the most reliably excellent events of the fall. Last year, to coincide with the museum’s Alfred Stieglitz exhibit, Smith paired a set of songs with readings from the love letters the photographer and gallerist exchanged with his wife, Georgia O’Keeffe, while tonight she celebrates the life of her contemporary Andy Warhol in a musical companion to the ongoing “Regarding Warhol: Sixty Artists, Fifty Years.” She’ll be joined by her daughter, Jesse Paris Smith. Tickets are sold out, but it’s worth hunting down extras, because unlike those Campbell’s soup cans, nights this special can’t be mass produced.
