National treasure Patti Smith is the raw, open and honest musical poet that we need to bring this nightmare of a year to a close. There may not have been a new studio album since 2012’s Banga but she’s been busy with her books, plus she’s armed with a stunning arsenal of songs. This show on Wednesday will see her celebrate her birthday with her band and a full set. It’ll be streamed live, with no rewatches available, so don’t miss it.

Tune in at 6 p.m. PT on Wednesday, December 30 via Veeps
