Here’s your last blast of Dylan-themed events surrounding the Duluth native’s birthday: the Blood on the Tracks Express.
The train will travel in a Duluth-based loop then stop at the Depot for music at the Lake Superior Railroad Museum. The lineup of musicians is a sort of “We are the World” of local players, including Black-Eyed Snakes, Freewheelers, Dirty Horse, Red Mountain, Cowboy Angel Blue, Bitter Spills and the Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank.
The North Shore, Dylan-focused music ride is from 5:30 p.m. to 11:15 p.m.
Meanwhile, for those who aren’t the train-shop kind, Charlie Parr plays at 10 p.m. at Redstar Lounge.
