On Saturday night St. Louisians turned out en mass to pay tribute to the legendary American singer and songwriter Woody Guthrie.

If Guthrie were still alive today, July 14, 2012 would have marked his centennial, and KDHX threw him one heck of a party.

Thirteen bands took the stage of Off Broadway, with instruments ranging from guitar, bass, drums, mandolin and even a glockenspiel. Woody Guthrie is still making an impact on music years after his death, and the bands were happy to play songs which have influenced them and which they love. Although the crowd might not have recognized all the songs, they were excited to hear the music, and happy to sing along on a few of Guthrie's more famous tunes.

The night, a benefit for 88.1 KDHX, ended with an encore of one of Guthrie’s most iconic songs -- "This Land is Your Land." Performers from all the bands squeezed onto the stage, and provided an iconic ending to the night -- Guthrie himself would surely have been smiling.
