Patti Smith to ring in 2011 with annual New York City shows

on October 14, 2010, 9:35am

This year will be coming to a close in just a few short months and if you’re utterly and helplessly clueless how to celebrate, here’s one idea: The legendary Patti Smith has announced her annual end-of-year shows at The Bowery Ballroom in New York, NY for the final nights of December, according to Paste Magazine. Now that’s what I call a party.

The Godmother of Punk began her career in New York City during the punk/beat music movement of the 1970s, so it’s no surprise that the iconic Bowery was the choice for her to host this yearly tradition. Beginning on December 29th, fans will essentially be treated to a three-night New Year’s Eve party on the Lower East Side, commencing with a countdown by Patti and the band on December 31st.

Tickets will go on sale this Friday, October 15th at noon EST. Additional information can be found at The Bowery Ballroom event page.
