Bob Dylan comes to the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium


Asheville, North Carolina, USA – Bob Dylan comes to the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium Saturday November 12th at 8pm.

Bob Dylan’s career has lasted the better part of fifty years now. That’s pretty remarkable. What is more impressive is that Dylan has remained not only active for almost all of that period, but controversial. He has never gotten by on sentimentality or nostalgia. He has never repeated his successes. For better or for worse, Dylan has always pushed his work ahead.

Bob Dylan is as great a songwriter – ah, let’s not beat around the bush – as great an artist as America has produced. But he’d be the first to tell you that he is part of a long line, one link in an endless chain. You can follow his influence backward or forward according to your own inclination. Or you can spend a long time just listening to Dylan’s five decades of contributions. Wherever you go into it, and whatever you get out of it, your time will be well spent.

When's the last time Bob covered Leonard? Hallelujah in the late 80's?

First and last time - or did he cover anything else before that I forget?

"This one's for Leonard..................if he's still here"

(It seems Leonard had said in an earlier conversation that he liked "Isis" much)

That seems right Eg. According to the Dylan, Inc. site, Hallelujah was first played in Montreal in July of 88, obviously for Leonard, let's face it. It was then brought back, one more time, a month later at the Greek in LA.
Wild to think that was with the FIRST incarnation of the Never Ending Tour Band.

From the 'Bob Songs for Leonard' thread over in General.

summerteeth wrote:
I will be there tonight in Asheville, and though I'm sure someone else is going to live tweet the set list (someone always does), I'll try to post immediately if he sings a Cohen song.

What I would give to hear him sing:
Ring the bells that still can ring,
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in


Or, it would be just like Bob (and totally fitting) if he sang Tower of Song, and then we (and Bob) coiuld relish in the irony when he sings:
I was born like this, I had no choice
I was born with the gift of a golden voice


Thanks Summerteeth!
Hoping he gives a Leonard nod, not holding my breath though.

Enjoy the evening!

I told my wife on the drive up that Bob never does what you think he's going to do.
So, I thought how great it would be if he did Anthem or Tower of Song.
Of course, since I could conceive of such a thing, he's not going to.
So then I thought - of course, I'm sure Bob is NOT going to perform a Cohen song.
Then I thought - if I'm sure that Bob is not going to perform a Cohen song, and he does just the opposite of what I think he's going to do, well...

up on Black Mountain a lot of work went on. enjoy the mountains.

"The poet is the only pedagogue left, to be trusted."
-- Charles Olson



https://black-mountain-research.com/creativity/

"The educational project BLACK MOUNTAIN RESEARCH is dedicated to the former art school Black Mountain College (1933-56) as a model of contemporary creative production and organization processes. On the occasion of the exhibition “Black Mountain. An interdisciplinary Experiment 1933 – 1957”, taking place at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, the museum and the Dahlem Humanities Center of Freie Universität Berlin are developing a collaboration for a period of three years, with the aiming of arranging several seminars, performances, symposia, as well as non-digital and digital publications before, during and after the exhibition.

Black Mountain proved to be an important precursor to and prototype for many models of creativity and collaboration today, emphasizing the importance of overarching concepts and practices to solve global problems such as homelessness, hunger or environmental disasters. The purpose of the college was to educate the whole person, with an emphasis on the role of the arts and creative thinking in every profession, with a potential for profound criticism of neoliberal models of creativity today."

don´t be sad, Mr. Wolfe. Dying too young to win the Nobel-Prize means not, that a winner doesn't play in a hall with your name.

I imagine Dylan reminds Wolfes big sentences when he is on the stage.

This whole fall tour has touched iconic American cultural places. it is really rather glorious to tour these cities leading into the Nobel ceremony.
Thomas Wolfe was father to Bob's work, it is perfect for him to be here tonight.



Look Homeward, Angel (1929)


A stone, a leaf, an unfound door; of a stone, a leaf, a door. And of all the forgotten faces. Naked and alone we came into exile. In her dark womb we did not know our mother's face; from the prison of her flesh we come into the unspeakable and incommunicable prison of this earth. Which of us has known his brother? Which of us has looked into his father's heart? Which of us has not remained forever prison-pent? Which of us is not forever a stranger and alone? O waste of loss, in the hot mazes, lost, among bright stars on this most weary unbright cinder, lost! Remembering speechlessly we seek the great forgotten language, the lost lane-end into heaven, a stone, a leaf, an unfound door. Where? When? O lost, and by the wind grieved, ghost, come back again. p. 3

Most of the time we think we're sick, it's all in the mind. p. 10

The exquisite smell of the south, clean but funky, like a big woman. 69

Nacreous pearl light swam faintly about the hem of the lilac darkness; the edges of light and darkness were stitched upon the hills. Morning moved like a pearl-gray tide across the fields and up the hillflanks, flowing rapidly down into the soluble dark. p. 142

And it was this that awed him — the weird combination of fixity and change, the terrible moment of immobility stamped with eternity in which, passing life at great speed, both the observer and the observed seem frozen in time. p. 157

-- Thomas Wolfe

Thanks for schooling us Schoolie.

I looked quickly at Wiki, so it must be true:

After Wolfe's death in 1938, at age 37, his contemporary William Faulkner said that Wolfe may have had the best talent of their generation. Wolfe's influence extends to the writings of beat generation writer Jack Kerouac, and of authors Ray Bradbury and Philip Roth, among others. He remains an important writer in modern American literature, as one of the first masters of autobiographical fiction, and is considered North Carolina's most famous writer.

AND

Hunter S. Thompson credits Wolfe for his famous phrase "Fear and Loathing"
