Away from college for the Thanksgiving holiday, Arlo Guthrie stayed at a friend’s house in Great Barrington, MA, in an old church turned into a very welcoming family home. That was in November 1965 – 50 years ago today. After trying to help out by taking a load of garbage to the local dump, Arlo ended up arrested for littering, a crime which, much later, resurfaced when he was contacted by his local draft board. He wrote a famously rambling song about his misadventures, released as the album Alice’s Restaurant in 1967, and later as a 1969 movie. But Arlo Guthrie always considered the date of the adventure, not the album, as the anniversary worth honoring – so though he retired the 18-minute song from his live concert program decades ago, he performs it every 10th anniversary year. So in this concert, he sings it again, with all those lyrics about glossy photos and father-rapers definitely included. Check local listings.
