Yay Patti Smith, Yoko Ono, Lou Reed, Antony, Sean Lennon & Le Poisson Rouge. Last night was AMAZING. Hope u raised a shitton of $$ for Japan

Last night’s concert made me proud to be a New Yorker. Organized in basically no time, and benefiting a great cause, I saw a still-fiery Patti Smith and a beyond-grizzled Lou Reed trade licks and verses with scream queen Yoko Ono, who at 78 had more energy than most people I know. The highlight was her duet with Antony, which was so heartfelt they couldn’t stop singing it, even after the song was over. Phenomenal.
