A quick check of Bob Dylan's website shows he doesn't have any gigs lined up in Fargo in the foreseeable future, but you can have the next best thing this Saturday at downtown's Fargo Theater.
The venue will be hosting the city's first DylanFest, a tribute to the legendary Minnesota singer-songwriter.
The concert will feature 15 local bands and musicians, who will play renditions of some of Dylan's many, many tunes, according to the Fargo Forum.
DylanFest's organizers – musicians themselves – have recruited a diverse array of talents for the show. The paper says they managed to pull in acts from rock, reggae, jazz, county, hip-hop and bluegrass backgrounds.
According to the High Planes Reader, it's a way for the organizers to show how widespread Dylan's influence truly is.
“I can’t believe all the musicians, young and old, that have been influenced by Dylan,” Merrill Piepkorn told the Reader, who also said the enthusiasm of the musicians he approached "made him move forward with this event."
The concert's Facebook page indicates some of Dylan's most beloved hits will be represented on Saturday. Among them: "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," "Hurricane," and "All Along the Watchtower."
Tickets are going for $10 and $15 dollars, according to the profile, and the Tickets300 website shows there's still some seating left.
