Welcome


Welcome to Pioneering, a new A.V. Club series presented by Honda. We'll be heading to eight cities around the United States, and at each stop we'll film a short documentary-style video about an American music pioneer. We'll be joined at each stop by a current musical artist who's been influenced by that pioneer, and who will give us a special performance of one of their songs. The result: two videos per week, all hosted by a member of The A.V. Club along with singer-songwriter Eef Barzelay—an expert in American music himself. A limited number of guests will be invited to each taping as well—you'll just need to watch the Newswire and tweet the hashtag #LoveToday if we're coming to your town…

Meet our co-host, Eef Barzelay

Eef Barzelay has been making music (as a solo artist and with Clem Snide) for more than two decades, and he's got a handle on the greats—he's a living definition of Americana's expanding and pioneering base. Barzelay will join an A.V. Club staffer in a redesigned 2014 Civic Coupe to host Pioneering.
