So Pavement + Sonic Youth + No Age may have already won the award for best bill of 2010, but the festivities scheduled at New York’s Bowery Ballroom on May 27th will mark the first and probably only performance from what may very well be the year’s most unique and downright fantastic collective.
On that day, the Bowery Ballroom will celebrate Bob Dylan’s 69th birthday by hosting the awesomely titled “Dylan Fest 2010 – a Night To Get Drunk and Celebrate Bob Dylan.” The evening’s scheduled entertainment will be The Cabin Down Below Band, a collective led by New York punk icon Jesse Malin (he owns a bar of the same name) and which has a history of playing all-star events. (See: Petty Fest 2009).
For this particular performance, The Cabin Down Below Band will feature Malin teamed up with the likes of — take a deep breath now! — 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, 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, Hurricane Bells, and “many many more”! Greatest birthday ever? Duh.
Tickets for the show, which are priced at just $13.00, are available here.
