Coming off the release of "New Multitudes," their Woody Guthrie tribute album with Jay Farrar and Yim Yames, Will Johnson and Anders Parker had played casual but tight sets in living rooms and alternative spaces without P.A. systems for seventeen straight nights before Saturday's performance to a small but dedicated audience at Off Broadway.

Will Johnson's never been stingy with his art. From his work with Centro-matic, South San Gabriel and Monsters of Folk, to producing and playing on albums by other artists, to painting portraits of baseball players, "prolific" barely describes the Missouri-born artist.

In the time since Centro-matic's last record, 2008's Dual Hawks, lead singer, guitarist and principal songwriter Will Johnson has been as busy as ever. The band itself has kept a relatively low profile while Johnson has diffused his energy across several other projects.

Will Johnson (of Centro-matic) 6/4/08
