Happy Birthday, Bob

Happy Birthday, Bob



Bob Dylan doesn't turn 68 until Sunday, but that won't stop 36 Philadelphians, spearheaded by the indefatigable Kenn Kweder and indispensable Jon Houlon, from celebrating three days early by each doing one song by the inscrutable bard tonight at Rembrandt's on 23rd Street in the Art Museum area. Kweder gets things started with "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?," Houlon, of John Train and the Donuts, follows with "Sara," and then they're off, with Dani Mari, Mia Johnson, Rich Kaufmann, Jim Boggia, Larry Ahearn, Adam Brodsky, Scot Sax and Michael Tearson all contributing, among a slew of others. Below, Loudon Wainwright III wishes Dylan a Happy 50th in "Talking New Bob Dylan Blues."
