May 27, 2010 was an all-star jam night at New York’s Bowery Ballroom for Dylan-Fest, a celebration of the life and music of Bob Dylan.  Dylan turned 69 this week and everyone from Sean Lennon to Boz Skaggs turned out to wish the singer/poet a happy birthday.  I was coming from another all-star event (the Woodstock of Street Art – and much more on that later), so I was a bit overloaded by the time the show started.  From our friends at Brooklyn Vegan, here’s the lineup for Dylan-Fest:  Fab Moretti and Nikolai Fraiture of the Strokes, Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, Adam Green, Norah Jones, Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl of Ghost of a Saber Toothed Tiger, The Pierces, Binki Shapiro from Little Joy, Jesse Malin, Nicole Atkins, Tracy Bonham, Antony Ellis of 5 O’Clock Heroes, Sammy James Jr. of the Mooney Suzuki, Josh Lattanzi of the Candles, Jody Porter from Fountains Of Wayne, Tyson Ritter of the All American Rejects, Steve Schiltz of Longwave and Hurricane Bells.
