Elliott Smith tried to buy some of Mick Rock’s photos

“Elliott Smith tried to buy some of Mick Rock’s photos of Syd Barrett one night about ten years ago. His manager ended up making Elliott cancel the purchase due to lack of funds. So Elliott felt so bad that the next day, he offered to play a secret show at Lit, and it wound up being his last NYC show (as it turns out he was wearing the Syd Barrett shirt we had made for that show when he passed.)”
