Justin Townes Earle brings a contemporary eye to the Guthrie canon on the year of Woody Guthrie's centenary These concerts mark a unique step forward for Earle outside his popular club appearances as he curates multiple artist and multi-date shows in a performing arts hall. Each date will reveal a different side of both Earle and Guthrie; the show tonight, October 26 will be a three man affair with Earle performing beside his friends Joe Pug and John McCauley of the band Deer Tick. On October 27, Earle will perform alongside a full band with special guests Joe Pug and the band The Low Anthem. Special guest Joe Klein, political and music journalist, will read from his book Woody Guthrie: A Life at both shows.

Join Pace Presents for two very special evenings with exceptional singer and songwriter Justin Townes Earle as he performs his original songs in the context of the continuing legacy of Woody Guthrie on the occasion of Guthrie's centennial celebration year. Justin Townes Earle, son of the great American troubadour Steve Earle, won the coveted "Song of the Year" award at the Americana Music Awards in 2011. Earle's latest album, "Nothing's Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now," has garnered significant critical acclaim, with Rolling Stone noting "(t)hat Earle breathes life into those well-worn ideas [love, legacy, life as a road] is a tribute to the rough-hewn elegance of his writing and his voice."
