Patti Smith (LIVING LEGEND) In the pantheon of rock originals, Patti Smith is one of the original originals. Since exploding onto the scene with 1975's breathtaking Horses, Smith's spent the past three decades honing her visionary marriage of performance-art poetry and ass-kicking rock 'n' roll. Lunkhead lore posits the 21st-century Smith as an admirable shadow of her earlier self, but fuck that: She's Patti Smith, and tonight, she's at the Showbox. (Showbox, 1426 First Ave, 8 pm, $25, 21+.)

yes...Patti Smith will always be ridiculously amazing. Going to see her live for the fourth time tonight.

Also playing for free (!) at the Bite of Oregon (!) in Portland tomorrow at 7 PM. I'd pay to see the Showbox show just to avoid the cluesess-indifference factor that will probably show up at the Bite, but either way, one of the best shows you will ever see.
