FreeFest Freeview- Patti Smith: Because The Night Belongs to Lovers

One of the many reasons why FreeFest is so amazing, is the supreme diversity of the musical acts.  While bands are playing in the "Dance Forest" bands like Black Keys are rocking hard on the main stage.  While Big Sean and Cee Lo Green and Big Sean are waiting backstage, Patti Smith at 64 years young will be taking the stage.  It's really fun for all styles and ages.  Patti Smith the "Godmother of Punk" has been performing since the mid 70's.  She's still going strong.

Smith's most notable song is undoubtedly "Because The Night" off 1978's Easter.  "Because The Night" was co-written with Bruce Springsteen and in 1987 for listed in NME Magazine's list of "The Top 150 Singles of All Time" coming in at 116.  Check out Patti Smith performing "Because the Night"
