Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion Move Show to Skinny Pancake

Here's an unusual programming note: Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion's performance, originally scheduled for Thursday, September 12, at the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge, has been moved to the recently expanded digs at the Skinny Pancake. And it's now a free show.

Guthrie — yup, she's Arlo's youngest daughter — and Irion are currently touring in support of their new record, Wassaic Way, which was released in August. The album was produced by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and Patrick Sansone, which makes sense given Tweedy's familiarity with the Guthrie clan.

On the Mermaid Avenue sessions, Tweedy, along with the rest of Wilco and Billy Bragg, worked with Nora Guthrie to revive and reimagine some of her father — and Sarah Lee's grandfather — Woody Guthrie's "lost" songs. So in a way, that means Tweedy has now collaborated with three generations of Guthries — albeit posthumously in Woody's case.   

Anyway, check out the lead single from that album, the decidedly irreverent pop charmer "Chairman Meow."
