R.E.M.‘s Peter Buck to Play for Joseph Arthur

On Sunday, October 21, New York’s City Winery will host Joseph Arthur’s ‘Where Is My Van’ fundraiser. The musician/painter’s van was recently stolen, and Arthur now has to recoup the costs of buying back his own van. Arthur spent over $10,000 was on Private Investigator fees and what he describes as “classic shakedown in the Bronx.”

R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck will perform at the fundraiser. The evening will double as Buck’s inaugural New York gig with his new solo band featuring Patti Smith Group’s Lenny Kaye, R.E.M. sideman/The Minus 5 leader Scott McCaughey and Bill Rieflin. Buck makes a cameo in Joseph Arthur’s video for the song “Where Is My Van”, hailed by Michael Stipe as the “fucking awesomest music video since “Nothing Compares 2 U.”
