Joseph Arthur, who recently had his van towed and then sold by the City of New York (read Joseph's note on that here), has written a song about in the incident called, "Where Is My Van." (It's pretty catchy, but it's no Sammy Johns.) The song was written with Kraig Jarret Johnson, who is a member of The Lonley Astronauts with Joseph, and the two just performed it at Joseph's City Winery show on Monday (8/27) with help from Peter Buck (of R.E.M.). You can watch a video of them performing it at that show and listen to a studio recording of the song below.
