Yes, today (May 24) we celebrate Bob Dylan’s 72nd birthday.
To mark the occasion, radio station WEXT 97.7FM is playing the Bob Dylan 100 (much better than the Indianapolis 500). The countdown began at 8am.
In a slightly belated celebration, the Bearsville Theater in Dylan’s old hometown of Woodstock will be hosting an all-star Bob Dylan Birthday celebration at 8pm on Sunday (May 26), a benefit fundraiser for the Woodstock Day School. For more details and the impressive line-up of performers, just go here…
And don’t forget that Bob Dylan himself will be back at SPAC this summer, heading into the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs on Sunday, July 21, when he’ll join Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Ryan Bingham in the Americanarama Music Festival.
