This will be the first show I go to with doubters since 2007...I wonder how all the unfamiliar material will go down with them. Anybody ever sneak a hip flask into one of these things? It's a long show and I don't have $60 to spend on $4.99 worth of Budweiser...pace yourself, smoke, pace yourself...they're predicting sun, low 80's and not especially humid (80 degrees can kill you in this town). There's going to be some serious summer fun regardless of Dylan's performance, but having never heard DK or this arrangement of She Belongs To Me I'm excited even though I know what's coming. Who could complain about hearing Bob Dylan sing Hard Rain?? Not me. And I love Soon After Midnight more with each listen. I'm excited for Richard Thompson, too, I've only seen him solo and that was almost 20 years ago, it's ridiculous that he's got such a short set.

Even with the static setlists, you never know when your night is going to be the one for "Workingman's Blues" or who knows what else. Seriously Bob, that performance was effin' great. Bring it back, or I swear to whine on the internet until you do!

It's not my first Bob concert in Illinois, but it will be my first Bob concert on a soccer field.
or a football field for that matter.

Did You Know?
The Home Insurance Building, built in 1885 and located on the corner of Adams and LaSalle Streets in Chicago, though only 10 stories high, was the world's first modern skyscraper. Designed by engineer William LeBaron Jenney, the building was supported by a revolutionary steel frame, which allowed for much greater height and stability without the greater weight of traditional masonry construction.


Image

blah, that's boring, well known, and not set in Bridgeview.

Here's something about Bridgeview:


History of Bridgeview
This section is dedicated to the past Bridgeview historians,
Richard J. Pleksa, Anthony J. Ulrich and Edward Blaha, who collaborated in producing the detailed history of Bridgeview’s early years.




Between 1850 and 1870 Chicago’s population jumped from 30,000 to nearly 300,000. Speculation in land and railroad stock was high. Political subdivision of all Illinois was a result of a compromise between the township system of Northern Illinois and the county system of Southern Illinois. Our state is divided into 102 counties, with each county divided into townships. The present municipal boundaries of Bridgeview include four different townships, with a corner of each meeting at the intersection of 87th Street and Harlem Avenue.

Had it not been for Nathaniel Pope, Representative in Congress for the Territory of Illinois, Bridgeview as well as the entire Chicago area might today belong to Wisconsin. In 1818, Pope persuaded President James Monroe and the U.S. Congress to include Chicago in the new State of Illinois by allowing a wide parcel to be de-annexed from Wisconsin’s southern section.


Subdividing Our Land

The accompanying 1886 real estate map shows the distinctly rectangular pattern of land subdivision and roads. This system of development and settlement was due to the Federal land survey adopted by the government in 1785. It set the pattern for roads and streets, traffic flow, and the arrangement of parcels of land upon which farms and buildings had been developed. Land ownership within the boundaries of what is now Bridgeview followed this rectangular pattern.

Today, two residential areas in Bridgeview, called the Gardens and Southfield, do not follow the straight north-south and east-west patterns. Streets in these areas are curved with offsets and cul-de-sacs, a pleasant change from the usual rectangular pattern. The village boundaries form a jagged-edged rectangular four and one half (4�) miles long by an average of about one mile wide.

sarcasm, right? after reading about Illinois, I learned that all the stories I learned for the Indiana scrapbook were appropriated from Illinois.

Turns out I have a GA PIT ticket available for tonight. Let me know if there are any locals who would like their hands on this ticket.

I think by stage time tonight there will be one more Merry Llama in the clan, and we haven't hired babysitters yet!

if i had not seen a Bob show last night, and if I were unable to attend tonight for any other reason,
it would indeed be a tragedy.

oh, if he breaks open the setlist tonight and plays guitar, we may have a minor tragedy on our hands.

Hmm Toyota - a better first name or middle name, do you think?

missing the opportunity to meet Sweet Melinda and rock out to Wilco though, another loss.

Review of Cincy said Richard Thompson came on 15 minutes early at 5:15. I think MMJ starts by 6:15 or 6:30, RT has a criminally short set.

no one mentioned i put john instead of jim henson above, that was a macguffin, that chance wrote to see if anyone knows their muppetalia.

like no one's pointed out yet bob in st. paul saying, "everybody from mick jagger to madonna," - mick yea, but madonna. since there is no known record of such public performance occurring, -perhaps this was a conflation of memories, maybe just a private performance lost to history? oh okay one of those, very nice. she has great cheekbones.

like before his time in the Shadows, with conway twitty too. everybody loves conway twitty. i like that song he had. thanks band for everything.

Conway Twitty - 1958 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbQwmvjLKrE


http://www.bobdylanroots.com/inter04.html

David Nesvold asked in a private email, Mar 8, 1998:

"As a purveyor of all things Dylan, you can perhaps help me pinpoint the year Bob Dylan was fired as a piano player by Bobby Vee in Fargo, ND. My all-too-inadequate memory says it was summer-fall 1959. I do recall that Bob Dylan washed dishes at the Red Apple Cafe, wolfed down "Buck-Nines" at the Bison Hotel and stayed with a family named Jolson..."

In an another email, Mar 9, 1998, David further elaborated:

"Sometime in 1959 I was introduced to Bob Zimmerman at the Bison Hotel by his local host, Mike Jolson, a lad of Zimmerman's age. (He's the friend mentioned by Bobby Vee.) Jolson recommended Zimmerman for the Velline Bros. Band. And if Mike isn't the one, it's his older brother, Al, who was about the same age as Bobby Velline's brother.

The Bison? At that time, it was a decaying Hotel with an all-night restaurant, located beside the Great Northern Railway tracks and featuring on its surrounding lawn a statue of William the Conqueror.

The Buck-Nine was a thinly-sliced sirloin steak about the same diameter as a basketball, served on a softball-sized plate and THE DISH at THE PLACE for late-night to early-morning habitues (survivors) of Fargo Nightlife (as it were).

Zimmerman, a scraggly youth, was scrunched into the corner of a Bison booth beside the mildly rotund Jolson, who was busy as usual promoting himself. Zimmerman was introduced as the piano player for the Shadows, I remember. I said 'nice to meetcha' or someother, then meandered to other booths filled with people I knew better. If I heard Zimmerman play with Velline, I don't remember it."
