Digging through boxes again this PM, I came across an 11X14 photo of Patti Smith cutting up in concert. Must have been something the Boston Phoenix was discarding — they would chuck old photos on occasion when storage space got too tight.

Just don’t sit there with your face hanging out — have some fun:
