As you might have noticed from the post below, tickets went on sale today for John Prine‘s September 10 show at The Beach at Governors Island. John recently released two new records, one was a live LP entitled Live and In Person and the other was an all-star tribute album called Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows. To say that the artists who participated in the Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows compilation are impressive, is an understatement to say the least. The BHDW track listing includes such indie darlings as Justin Vernon, Conor Oberst, My Morning Jacket, The Avett Brothers and many more. Here’s a little press blurbage on the record:

John Prine – Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows
Consisting of a dozen classic Prine compositions vividly re-imagined by a selection of maverick musical alchemists, Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows is a collection of interpretations that span everything from stark stringband strains to R&B backbeats, gurgling synths, and relentless rockabilly rhythms. Despite the various perspectives, studios, personnel, and voices, Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows holds together as a compelling and unified statement showcasing more of a heartfelt thank-you note than a tribute.

View John Prine‘s upcoming tour dates, and the track listing for Broken Hearts and Dirty Windows and Live and In Person after the jump.

PS Though only Todd Snider is listed on the bill, I wonder if any other “special guests” will show up for John’s concert. Though the GA standing tickets are a reasonable $25, the GA seated tickets are a pricey $70 + fees.
