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.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.

Patti Smith has a soft spot for Baltimore, dating back to the early '80s, when she and her husband would visit the city for soft-shell crabs and beer. These days, she "hardly ever" gets to play in Charm City, so when her current tour gave her a day off in the area, she booked a performance here - on Saturday at Rams Head Live . "I always liked Baltimore," Smith said. "I've always loved [Edgar Allan] Poe, too. The end of Poe's life is so mysterious - I like to contemplate that.

I went to see Stevie Nicks the other week, and she was predictably great, enveloping the audience in her magic, as usual, if without the agitated brio of her heyday. I was thinking of Stevie as I watched Grace Potter and the Nocturnals perform on the pavilion stage Saturday. They're both brassy blondes with a penchant for soulful turns of phrases and old-fashioned rock, in particular the music of the early 70s. Only, if Stevie's favorite on-stage move is to play with her shawl, Potter's is to play with her hair.

Sometimes reading magazines is freaky-deaky, like when you keep seeing profiles of the same cool celebrity, and she keeps saying the same cool things, and her photos are all shiny and grungy, and you wonder:Is this a harmonic convergence of some sort?Are all magazines one in the great glossy sky, and is a new mega-monopoly about to dawn?Or is this some kind of ugly joke in which we are only pawns in an Antonio Sabato Jr. nightmare, the kind where he goes out in public without his clothes on?

Biologically, Patti Smith is the mother of two. But her artistic spirit has been a nurturer of generations, her literate songwriting and self-created example inspiring many to pursue their rock-star dreams. On their own terms. For nearly three decades, ever since the release of her seminal 1975 debut Horses, Smith has been the female Bob Dylan of punk -- an unflinchingly political, often moving poet-rocker. Perhaps best known for the 1978 hit "Because the Night," which she co-wrote with Bruce Springsteen, Smith is thought of as the mother of the punk movement.

There are a number of reasons Barbaralee Diamondstein is able to entice so many big-name artists and art dealers, as well as museum curators and directors, to talk candidly on the record. She has the needed clout to command everyone's attention. A trustee at both the Corcoran Museum of Art in Washington and the New York Historical Society, chairwoman of the New York City Landmarks Preservation Foundation, well-connected in the federal government, she is someone everyone wants to know.There's another reason that 36 art world movers and shakers -- such as artists Chuck Close, Jenny Holzer, Ellsworth Kelly, Roy Lichtenstein and Robert Rauschenberg, dealers Larry Gagosian, Arnold Glimcher and Holly Solomon, museum directors J. Carter Brown, Thomas Krens, Phillippe de Montebello and Earl Powell -- talk so freely with her: pure flattery.
