It Ain't Me, Babe

If you’ve been to a Bob Dylan concert in the past few years, you’ve probably noticed that the old classics—“Like a Rolling Stone,” “Mr. Tambourine Man”—sound a lot different because of changes in the now-67-year-old icon’s voice and alterations in the arrangements due to his own ennui. He has been living with some of these songs for more than 40 years, after all. Frequently, this ends up disappointing people; these folks may be more satisfied with seeing Highway 61 Revisited (self-dubbed “the world’s only Bob Dylan tribute band”), who play album-faithful versions of tunes from throughout Bobby D’s storied oeuvre. Opening up is Grateful Dead tribute band Cubensis (’shrooms reference! Radical!).
