My Bob Dylan Themed Weekend

This past weekend I got the hell out of Dodge and headed upstate to Cooperstown, NY to go “cabinin’“. I didn’t get a chance to go to the Baseball Hall of Fame (sacrilegious and un-American, I know) but I did get a chance to go to Doubleday Field to catch Bob Dylan on his current tour with Jimmy Vaughan and Junior Brown.

The set list was:

1. Cat’s In The Well 2. Lay, Lady, Lay 3. Lonesome Day Blues 4. Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right 5. It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding) 6. I Don’t Believe You (She Acts Like We Never Have Met) 7. Blind Willie McTell 8. Highway 61 Revisited 9. Simple Twist Of Fate 10. Cold Irons Bound 11. My Back Pages 12. Summer Days (encore) 13. Like A Rolling Stone 14. Rainy Day Women #12 & 35

My favorite song of the night was “Cold Irons Bound” during which had an awesomely hypnotic guitar line.

Also, on the way up there (and back down) we caught a few episodes of Bob Dylan’s Theme Time Radio Hour on XM Radio (also available for free on AOL Radio). We caught “Eyes” (where Bob played “Dry Your Eyes” by The Streets) and “Dogs”. I fell in love with this old Ken-L-Ration jingle:

  1. no new songs, only two off love and theft. it’s the end of the summer tour so he’s going to save the new ones for the fall, maybe. that’s my guess.
