"I was born in 1941. That was the year they bombed Pearl Harbor. There have been some dark times since then. It looks like things are going to change now." (Roughly translated from Dylan)

The show was pretty good. I think Masters of War was probably my favorite song of the evening. All of the oldies had new arrangements. It's All Right Ma was half over by the time I recognized it. But, it was a fun show. Plus, I now get to answer "Watching Bob Dylan sing Blowing' in the Wind" to the question "Where were you when the United States elected it's first African American president?" That's pretty cool.
