On June 5, 2013, Patti Smith got some friends together to celebrate the birthday of poet Federico Garcia Lorca, who was murdered because of his sexual identity. A night of poetry and song took place at Manhattan’s Bowery Ballroom and as always with a Patti Smith performance, it was heavenly. One of the many highlights of the show to me was her cover of Eddie Cochran’s “Summertime Blues.” Check it out below. Enjoy!
