I'm sure Dylan fans may wanna lynch me, but the last few times I've seen him, one of the greatest American songwriters in history, it fell sorta flat. His voice is shot and he gets buried under the weight of an amazing array of hired guns. Still, there's something spiritual about his songs that even the man himself cannot undo. And as part of this tour, Dylan has invited a handful of his own disciples like My Morning Jacket, Wilco, and Ryan Bingham, to breathe new life, and pick up the torch and the slack.
Americanarama Festival of Music takes place Thursday, July 18, 5:30 p.m. at Darien Lake PAC, $30-$79.50, darienlake.com.
