3-30-09 Arlo Guthrie – Alice’s Restaurant Massacree

Posted by Sean on March 30, 2009

Well, any discussion about drug use and illegal behavior wouldn’t be complete without illegal dumping (and creating a nuisance!) and how to dodge the draft. In other words, it wouldn’t be complete without Alice’s Restaurant Massacree by Arlo Guthrie (Wikipedia entry here, so you know it’s wrong).

Filmed live 40 years after the incident that inspired the song at the deconsecrated church that Alice M. Brock called home in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, with scenes from the 1969 movie. Lyrics to the original 1967 recording here. Courtesy of jguth3.

By the way, I’ll be taking off from the blog on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from now on. I’ve been doing this blog pretty much nonstop for over a year and decided that it’s time for the occasional break.
