The A.V. Club—with presenting sponsor Honda—just launched a new video series called Pioneering, in which we visit locations around America that are associated with pioneering musical acts and spend some time with a current musical guest as well.
In each of the eight cities we visit, we’re filming a special performance, and we’re opening those performances up to a small number of readers.
If you’d like to see the soulful Austin-based folk artist Shakey Graves play in San Francisco in the early afternoon of Wednesday, April 23, just tweet the word “Shakey,” along with the hashtags #Pioneering and #LoveToday. Some kind of lunch will be served as well, courtesy of The A.V. Club and Honda.
Make sure you’re following @TheAVClub, and you’ll receive a link to sign up. Capacity is limited, naturally. We will contact the lucky few no later than 48 hours before the performance with full details.
There will be another one of these tapings soon, so keep your eyes on the Newswire to see if your city will make the cut. Pioneering will culminate in a big event in Chicago, too—and we’ll be releasing details for that soon.
