FMD – Dylan at 80
Bob Dylan turns 80 on Monday and what can one write that hasn't already been written? (That's my Dylan library in photo.) At 80 means that Dylan has gone from rebel to icon to joke to respected elder. It probably wasn't until my late 20s that I really started to get into Dylan's music, mostly those classic albums up through Blonde on Blonde and then later some of the latter albums. I've always had a meh relationship with the some 6-7 concerts I attended with Bob putting up ok but not stellar shows (including the concert at Northrop the night Obama was elected.) However, I was literally dragged to a show at the X in 2017 that I had zero expectations for that blew me away.
Also I have few degrees of separation with Bob Dylan. He and my mother lived 3 blocks apart in Duluth from 1943-47. I always wondered if their parents brought them to the same park or saw each other at a local store...
So Dylan is 80. No need to celebrate if you don't care to but I will pull some of the books off the shelf and read passages here and there. I'll put on an album or two, or maybe check out something I haven't heard for a long long time. (Self Portrait?)
Any Dylan memories, thoughts, arrows, on his 80th Birthday?
Seaberg & the Black Velvet Punks – Fallin’
John Kimbrough – Tree In Orange
Mr. Kimbrough here is from one of my favorite MN connected bands (as this song is too). Hell, one of my favorite bands in general I suppose.
Davina and the Vagabonds – Sugar Moon
Sometimes irrational attachment to a theme can lead a DJ to a local band she'd not heard of before.
Poliça – Wedding
Here's a cut from the Minneapolis natives' new album.
Black Diet – Fever
Sorry, I get to feature these guys at least one time a year.
Friends of friends, I'm happy to see these guys amassing more momentum every day. Their new album just dropped a couple weeks ago, which reminds me that I need to get their new album.
Black Diet – Cry
Here are the recent winners of Vita.mn's Are You Local? 2014 showcase (prize: A slot down at SXSW). Take the chance to see these kids as they play all over the Twin Cities while you can.
The Replacements – Takin’ a Ride
I honestly thought this whole "reunion" thing was a big mistake. Trying to recapture that youthful magic seemed like a bad idea, even if it was for charity. Man, I'm glad they didn't ask for my opinion.
22 years after hanging it up following a show in Chicago, they walked out onto a stage in Canada and did this.
The pic ain't much, but the sound is awesome. TURN IT UP!
