If hindsight is 20/20 vision, Arlo Guthrie has a vast perspective looking forward. After decades of perpetually touring, the folksinger is dialing it back a bit, but the road has become a way of life for Arlo: sharing songs and stories, getting to the heart of what really matters, and of course, being a comedic agitator. It's in his blood. It's who he is. It's what he does. Stirring the pot, questioning the powers that be, and reminding us what it's all about with humor and passion.
Initially making a name for himself in the sixties with the iconic "Alice's Restaurant Massacree" and providing perhaps the most often repeated phrase from Woodstock ("The New York State Thruway is closed, man."), Guthrie helped define the singer-songwriter genre burgeoning in the seventies.vWith over thirty albums in his discography, Arlo delivers an astounding time capsule from the works of his dad, Woody Guthrie, to the present day.

McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square seats 730 and has become a showplace for live performances.
Uptown’s only historic theater, McGlohon Theater was originally the First Baptist Church sanctuary. The venue was carefully restored and opened in 1980. With its stained glass windows and Byzantine dome, this historically designated space makes each event a memorable experience. McGlohon Theater features the orchestra (stage) level and the balcony level.
The theater is named in honor of the late, legendary jazz pianist Loonis McGlohon of Charlotte.
