Blame PDX Pop, Pains of Being Pure at Heart, or our creepy obsession with a children's theme park, but when it came time to devote some ink to the excellent Patti Smith tribute night, we ran out of space. Our apologies.

This event—Saturday night at Slabtown—is loaded with talented local acts (Swallows, Grey Anne, Karamy M., Marie Black, & tons more) paying tribute to the infallible Patti Smith, plus all funds benefit Siren Nation. Everyone wins! Also, even the legendary Lenny Kaye gave his blessings to this show.

Don't let Lenny down.
