Visions of Bob Dylan—As part of the PBS "American Masters" series, this Monday and Tuesday night at 9 p.m. KNME (Channel 5) will air the two-part Martin Scorcese-directed documentary Bob Dylan: No Direction Home. The film covers the singer-songwriter's life and music from 1961 to 1966, and includes rare and never-before-seen footage and new interviews with the artist himself as well as Allen Ginsberg, Pete Seeger and Joan Baez. We deem this mandatory viewing. (JCC)
Music to Your Ears
Music for the Fallen Five—This Saturday, the Wildlife West Nature Park in Edgewood will host a day-long concert to honor the five people slain on Thursday, Aug. 18, of this year. See this week's "Lucky 7" page for more details on the benefit and how you can help. (LM)
Farmers, Lock Up Your Daughters!—Jason Daniello and his band, Jason and the Argonauts, are headed East for the Midpoint Music Festival in Cincinnati, Ohio. Heaped on to the distinction of playing the Midwest's biggest music festival, JATA was one of just 15 bands out of 300 that were selected to be on the festival's compilation CD. (CD and ticket information at mpmf.com.) Jason and crew will also hit up some other cities along the way, including Cleveland, Ohio, Indianapolis, Ind., Louisville, Ky. and some town in Oklahoma we've never heard of. Check out jasondaniello.com or mpmf.com for details. (LM)
Popejoy for the Proletariat—FYI, tickets for most of Popejoy's 2005-2006 season of Popejoy Presents and Ovation Series performances will be available to the general public starting on Friday, Sept. 23. Why do you care? Tickets to these shows used to require a season subscription, and even then they could sell out within the first few hours. Screw that! Now even the least bourgeois among us have a shot at seeing the Chieftans, Swan Lake or the Glenn Miller Orchestra at Popejoy Hall. Get yours at unmtickets.com, 925-5858, (800) 905-3315, the UNM Bookstore or the Pit. (LM)
