Just a Half a Mile from the Railroad Track

So last night my parents took me out to the Gershman Y (which I had never heard of before, mind you), to see a concert by Arlo Guthrie. It was simply amazing. Apparently it was also the first time that he has performed his most famous song, Alice's Restaurant, in years.

Simply put, if you ever get the chance to see Arlo Guthrie in concert, go. I mean, after all, what other song can you name that has a single line as long as "Twenty-seven 8x10 glossy color photos with circles and lines on them and a paragraph on the back of each one 'splaining what each one was to be used as evidence against us"? Honestly now.
