Curtain Call

The Washington Post is reporting that the Bob Dylan musical "The Times They Are A-Changin' " will be closing next week after less then a month on Broadway- final performance set for November 19th. Dylan is in town next week for a handful of shows in the area, wonder if he might take in a matinée - I'm sure they'll be plenty of ticket available.

Also if you're heading to the The Music of Bob Dylan show tonight at Lincoln Center, here's the line-up. If anyone out there is going and wants to write a little review of the festivities shoot me an email....

I was there last night...the show had it's ups and downs as expected...but a really solid line-up and song selection.

highlights:

Spottiswoode's "Times Are A-Changin'"
Jamie Saft Trio's "Ballad of a Thin Man"
Lee Renaldo Project's rockin' "Positively 4th Street"
Warren Haynes "I Shall Be Released"
The Roots awesome mash-up version of "Masters of War" which included the Star Spangled Banner, Taps, and Hendrix's "Machine Gun"!!!
Ryan Adam's medley of "Isis" and "Love Sick" (both were great but together they went on too long)

Sadly the only real lowlight was Ramblin' Jack Elliot's inability to end "Knockin' on Heaven's Door"...Patti Smith had to walk over to him and give him a little nod to get him to pull the plug.
Then the lights just came up and it was over...so it ended the show with no real closure.
