BOB DYLAN · BELK THEATER AT BLUMENTHAL PERFORMING ARTS CENTER


Charlotte, North Carolina, USA – For almost 50 years, Bob Dylan has remained, along with James Brown, the most influential American musician rock & roll has ever produced. Inscrutable and unpredictable, Dylan has been both deified and denounced for his shifts of interest, while whole schools of musicians took up his ideas. His lyrics — the first in rock to be seriously regarded as literature — became so well known that politicians from Jimmy Carter to Vaclav Havel have cited them as an influence.

By personalizing folk songs, Dylan reinvented the singer-songwriter genre; by performing his allusive, poetic songs in his nasal, spontaneous vocal style with an electric band, he enlarged pop's range and vocabulary while creating a widely imitated sound.

By recording with Nashville veterans, he helped give rise to Seventies country-rock. In the 1980s and 1990s, although he often seemed to flounder, he still had the ability to challenge, influence, and surprise listener — something he did more reliably in the late 1990s and 2000s, when he recorded some of the greatest music of his career.

Because not much really has...at least not at the pace it did years prior.
That doesn't mean it's still not fun though.

Just not what it was. But then again, what really is?

Yes. It just ended.
Got some drinkin to do.
Will report back eventually.
Thanks to TPSoak for the ticket!


Same Set List.
Strong, tight, flowing.
Pay in Blood still confusing.
Glad it changed, but hope it changes again soon.

This slow lovesick is the new forgetful heart.

I don't usually do fashion, but kind of a penguin suit.
Hat off at piano, hat on center stage for the most part.

The most boring concert crowd I've ever witnessed...ever.

You would probably bore with my demeanor but I was rapt in my seat watching every move and hanging on every word. I'm sure I was boring but the experience I had was not, for me!

hey, Barefoot, so glad you made a show, I can't tell you how pay in blood resonates these days. please, what a Saved song if there ever was one.
I will write something about Durham and Roanoke soon,
been driving down the valley up north all night. bob is a camera obscura, a darkened chamber that traces our lives.

no make that, when I was stranding talking with the young man posted guard at the side of DPAC after the Durham show,
right where the tour busses had just been on the main street, we were talking cars and keeping the old ones alive,
when a car just pulled up to the curb right by us dragging it's catalytic converter, exhaust pipe, whole shebang, -had just fell off. the college-age kids inside were yelling in mock horror and one was jumping out and lying on the ground to try and fix it and the young gate guard yelled out "is everyone okay, are there any physical injuries?" all of us laughed. I miss late-night small town life.


since bob had just been there walking onto his bus on this deserted main street and now there was a catalytic converter laying there in the exact spot, moments later, it dawned on me, hey wait, yea-
that's what bob is!, he's THE Catalytic Converter-- the catalytic converter of the American soul!

:lol:

"A catalytic converter is an emissions control device that converts toxic gases and pollutants in exhaust gas to less toxic pollutants by catalyzing a redox reaction (an oxidation and a reduction reaction).
Catalytic converters are used with internal combustion engines fueled by either petrol (gasoline) or diesel—including lean-burn engines as well as kerosene heaters and stoves."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalytic_converter

"Rust Chain: Heavy rust on the links of a chain near the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco; it was continuously exposed to moisture and salt-laden spray, causing surface breakdown, cracking, and flaking of the metal."

"Redox (short for reduction–oxidation reaction) is a chemical reaction in which the oxidation states of atoms are changed. Any such reaction involves both a reduction process and a complementary oxidation process, two key concepts involved with electron transfer processes.

Redox reactions include all chemical reactions in which atoms have their oxidation state changed; in general, redox reactions involve the transfer of electrons between chemical species. The chemical species from which the electron is stripped is said to have been oxidized, while the chemical species to which the electron is added is said to have been reduced. It can be explained in simple terms:

- Oxidation is the loss of electrons or an increase in oxidation state by a molecule, atom, or ion.
- Reduction is the gain of electrons or a decrease in oxidation state by a molecule, atom, or ion.

As an example, during the combustion of wood, oxygen from the air is reduced, transferring electrons from the carbon. Although oxidation reactions are commonly associated with the formation of oxides from oxygen molecules, oxygen is not necessarily included in such reactions, as other chemical species can serve the same function.

The reaction can occur relatively slowly, as in the case of rust, or more quickly, as in the case of fire."

Elvis in Roanoke, soon later, I mean soon before.
