Patti Smith and her band played at The Space in Westbury on Long Island on December 27, 2013.

The video below is very cool. It’s an hour and 12 minutes long. The sound is excellent. The video quality is pretty good. The fan who shot this was in a good location, so some of the footage is a zoomed-in closeup and you can really see her. Later they pull back a bit, which is even better.

At one point Smith makes fun of Russian President Putin in support of the recently freed Pussy Riot members. The video ends during the final song, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Nigger.”

If you want to read a review of the show, there’s one here.

Here’s the set list.
