On April 12, 1963, Bob Dylan had his breakout concert at The Town Hall, a headlining solo performance in front of a thousand people. The concert is a masterpiece: A brilliant mix of original songs, Dylan played everything from now-classic numbers like Blowin in the Wind to unreleased, uncompleted protest songs like Hiding Too Long. The concert introduced to the world a young genius and a new era of folk music, and forecast a legacy to come.
On Bob Dylan's birthday, Thursday May 24, the Town Hall Ensemble and special guests pay tribute to Dylan and this legendary concert, with new renditions of both timeless and rare Dylan songs.
With Special Guests:
EMILY HAINES (Metric, Broken Social Scene)
MARK KOZELEK (Sun Kil Moon)
THE MILK CARTON KIDS
TRIUMPH the INSULT COMIC DOG
JOAN AS POLICE WOMAN
