'Blood on the Tracks'
Twin Cities singer/songwriters Martin Devaney and Adam Levy (Honeydogs frontman, and a social worker to boot) hit the Pantages stage to present the music of Bob Dylan backed by the same musicians who backed the legend himself on the Minneapolis sessions for the album, "Blood on the Tracks."
The lineup will include Bill Berg (drums), Gregg Inhofer (keyboards), Kevin Odegard (guitar), Peter Ostroushko (mandolin, guitar), Billy Peterson (bass) and Chris Weber (guitar).
Also appearing will be Eric Weissberg on guitar and banjo -- Weissberg may be best known for writing the instrumental "Dueling Banjos," a song irrevocably linked with hillbilly culture forever.

The Mighty Dells
Ah, does anything sounds more beautiful than seeing The Dells? No, not the Wisconsin Dells, although I'm sure they're quite lovely this time of year -- all covered with ice and snow and little blue children clinging frozen stiff to their water rafts waiting for spring. I'm talking about the legendary R&B combo The Dells (a.k.a. The Mighty Dells) -- one of the longest-lived vocal groups in our cultural history. The Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Famers have managed to maintain most of their original lineup since forming in 1953.
