John Prine

The Ani DiFranco camp says the decision won’t likely be made until minutes before the show of the tour, but all who are attending John Prine’s gig should hope the renegade woman opening up will choose to hold up the lady half of a couple of the Prine/Iris Demit classic duos. Singing “He ain't got laid in a month of Sundays/I caught him once and he was sniffin' my undies” alongside Prine’s “She likes ketchup on her scrambled eggs/Swears like a sailor when shaves her legs,” will bring some much-needed levity to her image. It’ll also add another layer of chuckles to a night with Prine, a troubadour who never fails to impress with his musicianship and wit. CHRIS KORNELIS
