Bob Dylan & band @ Terminal 5 (CristinaCuomo)
Bob Dylan

"The harmonica, also called harp, French harp, blues harp, and mouth organ, is a free reed wind instrument used primarily in blues and American folk music, jazz, country music, and rock and roll. It is played by blowing air into it or drawing air out by placing lips over individual holes (reed chambers) or multiple holes. The pressure caused by blowing or drawing air into the reed chambers causes a reed or multiple reeds to vibrate up and down creating sound. Each chamber has multiple, variable-tuned brass or bronze reeds, which are secured at one end and loose on the other end, with the loose end vibrating and creating sound." [Wikipedia]
Bob Dylan played his harp Tuesday night at Terminal 5 on songs like "This Wheel's On Fire" and "Ballad of a Thin Man" while Joanna Newsom was playing her harp a few blocks away at Carnegie Hall on songs like "Peach, Plum, Pear" and "Bridges and Balloons." Both Joanna and Bob switched to keys for some songs, though Bob could occasionally be found with a guitar in his hands too.

For Bob it was his 2nd of three shows at the NYC venue. Night one's setlist is HERE. Night three happens tonight (11/24). Night two's setlist is below...

Plenty pleased with what we got on Monday, but I would have loved to hear Workingman's Blues #2.

ive caught bob maybe 5 times in the last 5 years. this is the most ive seen bob on guitar before. is that out of the ordinary?

i was pretty pleased with the performance...altho there were plenty of douche's present and while i DONT hate terminal 5, the sight-lines really blow.

Do they allow bags (backpacks) in the venue? Also, any ban on photos? Thanks!

For people that went either nights, were there people selling extras outside the venue? I know it's pretty common at T5 for people to be selling....but how much were they asking for each ticket?

Really would love to go see him tonight but not pay $75 at the crappiest venue in NYC

to 9:08- They search your bags for cameras but I saw plenty of people with small point and shoots probably kept in their pockets (and of course several iphones whipped out).

to 9:53- Yes, several people were selling extras outside the venue last night- don't know the cost because I had a ticket.

Overall great show and loved that I finally got to see Dylan. T5 is a bad venue re: sight lines and wish it was somewhere else, but I still managed fine.

They make a big point of no pictures. Signs posted when you enter clearly state 'at the artists request, no photos allowed"

They ask people if they have a camera and search you for one. I Don't know what they do if they find one on you... turn you away or hold onto it, but you most certainly can't bring one in.

there's always a ban of SLR cameras at terminal 5. point and shoots are generally okay anywhere...

even with a photopass security gets all huffy when they see you with a camera.

but the real question is...was kanye there ? no? oh ok. this isnt relevant then !

Posted by nanomamous | November 24, 2010 11:58 AM

Is there an opener or will tonight's show actually start close to the 8PM range?

Posted by Anonymous | November 24, 2010 12:20 PM

well that may be.... but at least I never slept with Lumbergh.

Last night's show had the same time frame as Monday's. No opener, on by 8:05, finished by 9:50'ish.

Last night was the best i've ever seen Dylan. Great setlist, the sound was surprisingly good for T5, and Dylan killed it on harmonica and guitar a bunch of times. If you can get in tonight, you should.

Only douchebags bring backpacks to a show. Are you going camping after the event? Do you have a class to catch? Leave that shit at home because you're so self absorbed that you're never aware of your surroundings and constantly bumping into people with that fucking backpack.

Can you bring hummus to terminal 5? I was hopinout could snack a little bit when I await for the encore. It really helps pass the time.

Posted by Anonymous | November 24, 2010 3:18 PM

i could smell that dylan ate some hummus last night.

@2:52 is a hero.

Posted by Anonymous | November 24, 2010 5:22 PM

To 2:52: You have done all of us an incalculable service by revealing a new way to readily identify a douchebag! Previously I have had to rely on actually getting to know someone before passing such harsh judgment. This new method will save me so much time! It probably goes without saying that another quick way to detect one is from mean-spirited blog posts.

Posted by Blind Boy Grunt | November 24, 2010 5:26 PM

Dylan should allow cameras. Sure people shouldnt bump into others with their backpacks but without it what are you gonna carry your book, coat, harmonica, and left over lunch in?

Posted by Anonymous | November 24, 2010 10:37 PM

But seriously you need a bag when going long distances on the train or bus for hours at a time often. Especially when you just came from work etc. Just try not to bump into people, but 2:52 is an ass.

Dylan rocked like Supah-Jew. Ballad Of A Thin Man told like a warning from the gates of Hell! Very happy
