Patti Smith, Laurie Anderson, Yoko Ono, Stevie Nicks... Oh, don't mind us. We're just counting how many uncompromising female rock titans we have the honour of walking among in our times. Surely, we're forgetting some (we see you, Debbie Harry), but let's start with Patricia Lee Smith. Our reason for doing so? The Athens Epidaurus Festival and its invitation to the legendary singer to perform at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus this summer. The answer was a yes, so it's a date with protest poetry and romantic anthems beneath the Acropolis. What more is there to say, really? Oh, we know. Laurie Anderson.
