Patti Smith Apparently Covered Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" Last Night

Hell of a segue there.
As if the crossover appeal of Adele's inescapable "Rolling In The Deep" hadn't been well-documented enough, last night's Patti Smith show at Castle Clinton reportedly had a cover of the thundering breakup anthem. I am not the sort of person who often goes "whoa" at things—being on the Internet for as long as I have, plus just being tired—but, well, this is sort of unexpected. According to one attendee, Smith "forgot the words but it was kind of adorable"; another reported that she called it the song of the summer, which, well, I'd argue that it was also the song of the winter and spring too, but yeah, it probably will take the "summer jam" title when all's said and done. (Sorry, everybody.) Kind of can't believe that nobody's posted video of this event yet, so consider this post as a call for someone to come through. [HT: @clr]

I was there, but no video for you -sorry. She did indeed play Rolling in the Deep and killed it. yeah, she forgot part of a verse, but it didn't matter. She sang something funny like "I forgot the words, but I love this song".

Anyway, the whole show was amazing. One of the best concerts I've ever seen. First time I have seen Patti Smith. Now I know why everyone raves about how good she is live.Has anyone found a good review of this show yet? Where were all the NYC music reporters? A bunch of press seats were reserved for them?

Last night there were a ton of shows happening all around NYC -- I was at tUnE-yArDs (review TK), and there was also the Julianna Barwick show that we just posted a review of, and Superchunk, and Joan Jett, and all these other concerts. It was a total pile-up, and I suspect that's a big reason why there aren't many reviews up yet. (I wish I could cover every show in the city, believe me! But it would cost A BILLION DOLLARS. Or thereabouts.)

Oh, okay. That makes sense. Too bad though, cause you all may have missed one of the best concerts of the year. Anyway, if you find a good review, let us know.
