Thurston talked about a Patti Smith show at CBGB's in which Patti had a table placed in the center of the club for Williams Burroughs. But he also talked about taking a piss (his words) next to Elvis Costello. And then later Elvis joined Patti on stage. I think those two things happened at the same show but possibly two different Patti shows. But before that he told that story about how he asked Joey Ramone where CBGB's was and how he offered him a ride. I'm sorry to say I didn't film him but I should of because I was right in front of him. I took two pictures.

I don't remember two of the people but one guy talked about Sleater-Kinney. The bassist from The Strokes was there and he talked but I don't remember what band he talked about. Only two women spoke. The first one was terrible, I don't even remember if she even talked about a band. But the other woman told an amazing story. She first thought she was going to talk about a Sonic Youth show she saw at CBGB's in 1988. Then she talked about a Patti Smith show in Prospect Park in 1995. Then she talked about Patti's New Year's Eve show in 1998.
