Eight Gigs: Arlo Guthrie
Sat., April 15, 8 p.m., Mondavi Center, $13.50-$72
Arlo has been organizing themed tours over the past few decades. After last year’s Alice’s Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour that stopped in Davis, Arlo has likely pulled that 18-minute beloved song off the current setlist, in favor of much shorter songs penned by Woody, Dylan and Arlo himself spanning mostly the ’60s and ’70s. On the current tour Running Down the Road, the band Shenandoah is along for the ride, expanding Arlo’s solo act by backing his trademark harmonica, guitar and good-natured vocals with a pop-rock sound. 1 Shields Way in Davis, www.arlo.net.
