Oh Boy Records has announced a benefit concert for Jessi Zazu of the band Those Darlins at the Basement East on July 27!
“The Songs of John Prine” begins at 7PM and will feature renditions of the American-mainstays like “Angel From Montgomery,” “In Spite of Ourselves,” and “Paradise.” The lineup features artists inspired by the man himself with performances by Alex Caress, Amanda Shires, Andrew Combs, Andrew Leahey, Brothers Osborne, Caitlin Rose, Caroline Rose and many more. Hosted in celebration of the re-release of the 2010 John Prine tribute record Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows, Oh Boy Records will also be re-pressing the album (which includes Those Darlins’ rendition of “Let’s Talk Dirty in Hawaiian”) on vinyl.

All proceeds from the event will go towards Jessi “Zazu” Wariner, a member of Nashville-based trio Those Darlins along with Nikki Kvarnes and Linwood Regensburg. She has been battling cancer for the past year while creating art about her experiences.
