Yesterday's Live section ran an incorrect photo with an item about Patti Smith performing at the 9: 30 Club.
The Sun regrets the error.
For many fans, the Great Punk Comeback of 1996 wasn't the Sex Pistols but Patti Smith, whose "Gone Again" was ranked by some reviewers as one of the year's best albums.
FOR THE RECORD - CORRECTION
Granted, there was a fair amount of sentiment involved, as Smith was playing punk rock before most of today's punkers even had safety pins in their diapers. But unlike the Pistols, who were content merely to reiterate their old singles, Smith has kept growing. So even though her new music is clearly of a piece with the old stuff, it sounds as vital and contemporary as anything on alternarock radio. Smith and her band -- Jay Dee Daugherty, Lenny Kaye, Tony Shanahan, Luis Resto and Oliver Ray -- will be at the 9:30 Club tonight and tomorrow. Doors open at 7:30 this evening, 8:30 p.m. Thursday; there is no opening act. Tickets are $25. Call: (410) 481-6500
