Double Your Pleasure with Two Nights of Dylan FestMay 24th, 2011
It started out small and has steadily grown. Two years ago Dylan Fest was held at Mercury Lounge, and with word of mouth about how much fun the show was, it moved to The Bowery Ballroom last year. In the bigger room, there were more guests and more in attendance, and everybody got pretty loose while lustily singing along to Dylan tunes. Well today Bob turns 70, so you know the party’s gonna be even bigger, which means two nights of Dylan Fest 2011, at The Bowery Ballroom on Thursday and Friday. Not going out of town for Memorial Day weekend? No problem. Join in on the fun with the Cabin Down Below Band hosting great musical guests like Norah Jones, Adam Green, Will Forte and Jason Sudeikis of SNL, Jesse Malin, Nikolai Fraiture of the Strokes, Ian Hultquist of Passion Pit, Nicole Atkins (only on Thursday), Tad Kubler of the Hold Steady, Evan Dando and Josh Lattanzi of the Lemonheads, Reeve and Zane Carney of Carney and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, Danny Clinch, Adam Schlesinger and Jody Porter of Fountains of Wayne, Sammy James Jr. of the Mooney Suzuki, Ben Trokan, Steve Schlitz of Longwave and Hurricane Bells, Antony Ellis of Five O’clock Heroes, Luke Rathborne, Jack Dischel of Only Son, Johnny Cordawg and even more.
