As we near the end of summer, let’s make the most of these last days of August. What’s On suggests five events to attend on the weekend
- Patti Smith & Tony Shanahan, a talk and music show
Ragged rhythms, a rocking sound, unpredictable arrangements – these are elements of the performance by Tony Shanahan. The essence of Patti Smith’s work is revealed in words. Her lyrics are as strong and confident as she is. The singer does not suffer from nostalgia: “I don’t give a damn about the 70’s.” Patty talks about what’s happening here and now. Therefore, her work remains relevant over the years and decades.
