We celebrate Patti Smith’s 74th birthday on 30 December 2020. Seattle’s Arts & Lectures hosted an event with Patti in October 2019; DJ Barnabas was able to attend, and dedicated half of one episode of Community Noise to that evening. We repeat that half-show here, which includes DJ Barnabas reading exerpts from Year of the Monkey. The second half of the show is a bunch of great stuff from Seattleites.

“Love is a banquet on which we feed”
