What We’re Seeing Friday: Patti Smith: Dream of Life, The Alaya Conscious

Our plans for Friday involve the impressionistic Patti Smith documentary, Patti Smith: Dream of Life, which includes an after-film conversation with Smith, director Steven Sebring, and Chicago Sun-Times pop critic Jim DeRogatis.

Later in the night, progressive-metal power trio The Alaya Conscious prepares for a new EP with a show at Chicago’s Elbo Room.
