Tour Dates: Dylan Fest 2012

It started out as simple way to honor the life and music of Bob Dylan, by Rolling Stone editor Austin Scaggs at his favorite local East Village bar, but over the course of a decade Dylan Fest has become an annual raucous event that’s a must attend for any Zimmy fan. Now in its tenth year, the two-night event will celebrate Mr. Dylan’s 71st birthday on May 24 (his actual birthday) and 25 at New York’s Irving Plaza, with another impressive roster of musicians that includes Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith (Dawes), Matt Vasquez (Delta Spirit), Nicole Atkins, Ryan Miller (Guster), Fabrizio Moretti (The Strokes) and Cory Chisel. If that wasn’t enough to get you in the door, the night will also feature a special tribute tribute to Levon Helm. Tickets are currently on-sale now with a portion of the proceeds set to benefit Amnesty International.

Here’s a look at the initial line up….

Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith (Dawes), Cory Chisel, Nicole Atkins, Adam Green, Boz Scaggs, Fabrizio Moretti (The Strokes), Ryan Miller (Guster), Jason Sudeikis, Will Forte and Matt Vasquez (Delta Spirit), Christopher Chu (POP ETC), Jody Porter (Fountains of Wayne), Petter Erickson Stakee (Alberta Cross), Tyson Ritter (All American Rejects), Sammy James, Jr. (The Mooney Suzuki), Ben Trokan (Robbers on High Street), The Tangiers Blues Band, Jack Dishel (Only Son), Steve Schiltz (Longwave), Tracy Bonham, Jamie Burke, Mikki James and actor Justin Long.
