Flier of the Week: Bob Dylan at Nova Southeastern University, October 6
You're gonna make us miss you, Bob.
Update: Here's the review of the October 6 show.
For some folks, it would have been enough to put up a copy of Blonde on Blonde with a chipmunk chewing on it: Bob Dylan's coming back to South Florida! The concert takes place October 6 at the Arena at the Don Taft University Center
at Nova Southeastern University in Davie. Whew!
Dylan's music is like an effervescent newborn to some and a crusty uncle to others, but it's hard not to acknowledge that his songs are part of the extended family that is popular music. As a member of the former camp, County Grind is doing backflips -- something he can't even achieve under heavy hypnosis -- as the October 19 release of The Witmark Demos: 1962-1964 (47 stripped-down, acoustic renderings of the Bob Dylan songs of that era), and The Original Mono Recordings (his nearly flawless first eight albums) approaches.

It's old news to prepare people with the warning that Dylan has aged a bit and his voice is scratchy and he plays versions of his classic songs that are tough to recognize. Gauge your interest by listening to his arguably still sublime rendition of "Tangled Up in Blue" performed at the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle over the weekend.
