Bob Dylan

It's safe to say that Bob Dylan is unlike any other living American music icon. Instead of constantly reviving his past, the 71-year-old remains committed to reinventing his style with challenging concerts and playfully dark albums. His voice, which by now exists somewhere between a croak and a growl, interacts with a great backing band that can bring pre-1960s American jazz, pop, and honky-tonk to life. No other American masters sound like this—which is why Dylan continues to be so compelling. Mon-Tue 7:30 p.m.
