Joseph Arthur's had a busy year -- he released a Lou Reed tribute album, played shows with Afghan Whigs and more. He's got a couple NY-area shows coming up in the next month. He'll play Monclair, NJ's Unitarian Universalist Church on December 12 (tickets) where he'll be resurrecting his "Ballad of the Boogie Christ" show. Then he'll be doing his now fifth-annual New Year's Day show at City Winery which is with Chuck Prophet (who was just touring with John Murry). Tickets are on sale now.

In other Joseph Arthur tribute news, he also wrote a tribute to Robin Williams who we lost back in August. You can listen to that below...
