No Need to Think Twice About Celebrating 30 Years of Dylan Music at Lobero

Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration will be presented on Friday, Jan. 13, as part of the Lobero LIVE series of specially curated evenings in rock 'n roll, courtesy of Hale Milgrim in Go to Hale: Film Series 1 at the Lobero Theatre, 33 E Canon Perdido St., Santa Barbara.

Milgrim’s musical journey started behind the counter at Isla Vista’s Discount Records and has spiraled upward through a succession of positions at major record labels, leading eventually to a stint as the president of Capitol Records.

Since returning to Santa Barbara with his wife Anne, Milgrim has continued to work with and support local music including the Sings Like Hell series, and put on a regular radio show, called Go to Hale, for several years on KTYD.

The community can join Milgrim for a visual, musical journey through live concert footage from pivotal moments over the last 50 years complete with his memorable insights, commentary and illumination.

For Bob Dylan: 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration, A Toast to 54 Years of Bob Dylan’s Career as a Recording Artist, doors open at 7:03 p.m. and the program begins at 7:28 p.m. sharp.

Dubbed "Bobfest" by Neil Young, the 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration is a live performance in recognition of Dylan's 30 years as a recording artist.

Recorded on Oct. 16, 1992, at Madison Square Garden in New York City, the concert features many artists performing classic Dylan songs, before ending with songs from Dylan himself. Performers include members of Booker T. and the MG's, Kris Kristofferson, Roger McGuinn, Ronnie Wood, Johnny Cash and June Carter, Neil Young, Lou Reed, Eddie Vedder and The Band.
