Arlo Guthrie 

When: Thu., Jan. 28, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: $37-$131
Arlo Guthrie’s signature song, “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree,” holds a hallowed spot among rock and pop music’s lengthiest compositions. At 18:34, it’s more than a minute longer than such epics as Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” Pink Floyd’s “Dogs” and The Velvet Underground’s “Sister Ray.” But “Alice’s” is neither a monument to instrumental indulgence nor a multi-part suite. Rather, it’s a lugubrious, sometimes-hilarious narrative grounded squarely in the socially conscious folk tradition that Arlo’s father, Woody, pioneered. After a half-century in the business, he knows how to hold a crowd. —David Klein
