Convention Countdown: A Bob Dylan RNC Boycott?

Resizeratio6506502000democraticnatiThere’s talk in St. Paul, Minn. that Bob Dylan has persuaded his son Jakob not to perform to for an agricultural trade group during the Republican National Convention, according to the Politico.

The elder Dylan, who endorsed Barack Obama, is a native of Hibbing, Minn., and has supported progressive causes in the past.

The event, called AgNite, would have been non-partisan, but apparently there were fears that it would have looked as if the younger Dylan was supporting the GOP. The fete is taking place at the old Milwaukee Road depot in downtown Minneapolis, away from the convention site in St. Paul. Organizers instead have lined up Styx.

HRC Concerts: Cyndi Lauper, Rufus Wainwright, and Melissa Etheridge will perform at the Human Rights Campaign’s “Rock to Win” concert during the Democratic National Convention. The event will take place on the second night of the convention in Fillmore Auditorium in downtown Denver.
