    Bon Iver and The National's Bryce and Aaron Dessner have joined joined together for an upcoming concert. Put together by Bryce Dessner, the concert will feature the Dessner brothers on guitars, Bon Iver's Justin Vernon on vocals, eighth blackbird, and pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque. The show is set to take place September 25th at Paris, France's Philharmonie. The Philharmonie describe the event as:

    "Passing nimbly between rock and contemporary music, Bryce Dessner cultivates the art of collaboration with shared compositions and performances. For this concert, he brings together guests from a variety of backgrounds: his brother and close collaborator Aaron Dessner (The National), singer Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), and the Labèque sisters."

    Earlier this Month, the Dessner brothers released their Grateful Dead cover album, Day of the Dead, which featured the biggest names in indie rock. Among the list of contributors are The National, Courtney Barnett, Wilco, the Flaming Lips, Kurt Vile and J Mascis, Justin Vernon, Anhoni, War on Drugs, Sharon van Etten, Grizzly Bear's Daniel Rossen and Christopher Bear, Real Estate, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Jenny Lewis, Perfume Genius, My Morning Jacket's Jim James, TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe, Bill Callahan, the Walkmen, Stephen Malkmus, Phosphorescent, Angel Olsen, Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo, Yo La Tengo's Ira Kaplan, Cass McCombs, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, and Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry.
