Arlo To Go Solo, Go To So…IL?

Folk troubadour (and son of a folk troubadour) Arlo Guthrie will be bringing his “Solo Reunion Tour – ‘Together at Last'” to the area with a stop at the Espenschied Chapel in my hometown of Mascoutah, IL on October 14th.

The chapel is an intimate venue. As the name implies, it’s one large room with a small stage up front. Plus, it’s in a graveyard.

Tickets cost $100, so if you have…um, one of those things…what are they called? A job, you can go.

Visit the chapel website for more info.

Here’s a list of Arlo and cemetery jokes I avoided making in this post:
Dying to get in?
Fans know that Arlo “Don’t want to die,” but he’s coming to a graveyard anyway.
Don’t you know Arlo? He’s your native son.
And, in the interest of fairness, my Mom is on the chapel committee. If I made that more obvious in the story, a “Ballad of Gabriel’s Mother” joke could be tossed in. Of course, I’m not sure how many of our readers are familiar with Arlo’s lyrics or library, which is why I left these jokes out.
