Grammy Museum Celebrates Bob Dylan’s Birthday

Tonight’s special event at the Grammy Museum is sold out. Which, on Bob Dylan‘s 70th birthday, is the way it should be.

Following a screening of the Murray Lerner doc The Other Side of the Mirror: Bob Dylan Live at the Newport Folk Festival 1963-65, Rolling Stone contributing editor Michal Gilmore and Princeton prof Sean Wilentz will dissect the film. They will also field questions from the audience and sign copies of their respective books.

For all those not holding tickets to tonight’s Bob-a-thon, there’s always this massive cheat sheet courtesy of The Atlantic Wire. The collection of linked articles, videos, and other material is an equally solid way to pay your respects to the last surviving troubadour.

Other singers born on this date include the late opera star Beverly Sills, Lauryn Hill, and country artist Tom T. Hall.
