TIME OUT OF MIND: BOB DYLAN'S BIRTHDAY

KINGS, RALEIGH | SUNDAY, MAY 24

Bob Dylan doesn't really need a tribute, even at the age of 74. Strange as it may seem, he's been releasing some of the best records of his career during the last two decades, starting with the beautiful and broken Time Out of Mind in 1997 and continuing through this year's beguiling cover set, Shadows in the Night. All the same, Rod Abernethy felt like celebrating Dylan's 74th birthday with his songs. Best known alternately as the guitarist for '70s North Carolina favorites Arrogance or as a big-deal composer of video game music, Abernethy invited several of his friends to join the ceremony. A house band will back a dozen singers and songwriters, mining many of Dylan's greatest hits (and a few obscurities) in a two-hour homage to the wizened and mustachioed bard. The talent includes dB Peter Holsapple, Arrogance's Robert Kirkland, Ben Folds Five's Robert Sledge and the cores of both The Connells and The Backsliders. No one is planning on a cut from the event's namesake masterpiece, but Abernethy does hope to end the show with one big sing-along. 8:30 p.m., $10, 14 W. Martin St., Raleigh, 919-833-1091, www.kingsbarcade.com. —Grayson Haver Currin
