Legendary Patti Smith Steals Back The Spotlight For New Year’s


Patti Smith at Coney Island in 1996, from the documentary “Patti Smith: Dream of Life.”

If you weren't able to snag a ticket for Patti Smith And Her Band's three-night run at the Bowery Ballroom  (culminating in what's bound to be the best New Year's Eve concert on the LES) you can catch the premiere of “Patti Smith: Dream of Life,” on PBS tomorrow night (which also happens to be Ms. Smith's 63rd birthday) as part of their POV Series.  The documentary was filmed over 11 years by the fashion photographer Steven Sebring.
