So, Em and I are getting ready for the upcoming Patti Smith tribute concert here in Portland. It is a fundraiser for Siren Nation (a NW women’s music festival), and we will be joined on stage by about 7 other performers. We will be doing three covers. One is done (“Distant Fingers”) one is half done (“Ain’t it Strange”), and one isn’t conceived of at all yet….
Anyway, the search for inspiration lead me to Youtube. I had a hard time finding video taped performances of the particular songs I was looking for, but I did find a couple interesting ones I hadn’t seen previously. Check it out.
