The Drop: Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion

Presented By American Express

Tuesday, July 16, 2013; 8:00 p.m.

Husband-wife duo Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion established their folky sound on their 2005 LP, Exploration and expanded their sonic horizons on the 2011 album Bright Examples. Their music combines Guthrie’s roots in folk and country (she’s the granddaughter of folk music pioneer Woody Guthrie) with Irion’s love of punk and pop. On August 6, 2013 the couple will release their third studio album together, Wassaic Way. To produce the project, Guthrie and Irion team up with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and Patrick Sansone to record eleven all new tracks, taking their music to a place that was unexpected. To help celebrate the upcoming release of Wassaic Way, please join us as we welcome Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion to The Clive Davis Theater. Hear Guthrie and Irion discuss how their music departs from a folk duo and enters a dynamic soundscape of loud guitars, lushness, pop and edge. Moderated by GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli, the duo will also take audience questions and perform a selection of songs.

Reel to Reel: Mistaken For Strangers- A Year On Tour With My Brother’s Band

With Special Guests Marr Berninger of The National

Presented By American Express

Thursday, July 18, 2013; 7:30 p.m.

In 2010, the rock band The National released their fifth album, High Violet. After ten years as critical darlings, the band was finally enjoying wider recognition. As they were about to embark on the biggest tour of their career, lead singer Matt Berninger invited his younger brother, Tom, to be a part of their tour crew. A budding filmmaker and horror movie enthusiast, Tom brought along his camera to film the experience. Mistaken for Strangers is a comical, yet touching look at two very different brothers, and an odd but strangely moving portrait of a popular, nuanced band. Please join us in The Clive Davis Theater for the official Los Angeles screening of the film that The Hollywood Reporter calls “Brutal, hilarious…unexpectedly honest.” The film's Tribeca Film Festival debut coincided with the release of their newest studio album Trouble Will Find Me which came out on 4AD May 21st. Following the screening, lead singer Matt Berninger and his brother, the filmmaker Tom Berninger, will participate in a panel discussion and audience Q & A, moderated by Vice President of The GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares, Scott Goldman.

Doors open at 7:00 pm. American Express presale tickets are $20 and can be purchased online by American Express Card members starting Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at noon. Public onsale is Wednesday, July 3, 2013 at noon. American Express is the exclusive payment method for presale tickets. American Express ticket purchasers will also receive a special gift.
