I'm on a horse.

Update! The contest is closed! Winners have been emailed. Check your email!

So, our friends at WEXT emailed us today and were like:

And we were like:

Yes. Yes, we would.

OK, here's the deal. Thanks to WEXT, we have six pairs of tickets to give away to Saturday's show. Jakob Dylan will be performing with a band that includes Neko Case (!) and Kelly Hogan. They collaborated with him on his second solo album, which came out earlier this month.

What's your favorite thing by a Dylan? It could be Jakob Dylan, Bob Dylan, Dylan Thomas or Whoever Dylan.

We'll select the six winners at random from the posted comments.

Important: You must post your comment by 11:59 pm on Wednesday April 14, 2010. One entry per person. You must include a working email address with your comment. The winner will be notified by email before 9 am on Thursday. The winners must respond with their full name by noon on Thursday.

Tickets for the show are $33. It starts at 7:30 pm on Saturday.


Since we stole the name for our youngest son, I'd have to say "The Mighty Quinn." And for clarification, we named him "Quinn" not "The" or "Mighty."

My favorite personal Dylan trivia is that when I was a kid, all of our family pets shared names with Bob's kids. Including our malamute husky, Jake!

I always liked A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall

The answering machine message by Luke Perry on Beverly Hills 90210: "This is know what to do."

Favorite Dylan you ask (sort of)? Drew Barrymore's character in Charlie's Angels!

one of my early childhood memories is that of my father singing Blowing in the Wind at random times and telling us it was a song by this "Dylan guy".

I like 'All Along the Watchtower' but whenever I hear it I fear that I've been programmed by robots to betray the human race

I would have to say I'm partial to Jakob Dylan's work on "Bringing Down the Horses" with the Wallflowers.

Sorry for the lack of originality, but that's probably my favorite thing by a Dylan. (Sorry, Bob!)

The Wallflowers cover of the beatles I'm Looking Through You from the I am Sam soundtrack

Dylan's Dirt Balls from Dylan's Candy Bar in NYC. Chocolate covered cookie balls. Delicious!

my favorite thing about jakob dylan is his collaboration with neko case. she's crazy awesome.

My favorite thing by Bob Dylan is Jakob Dylan.

It has to be Hurricane, which always makes me think of the movie Dazed and Confused

At some point in my youth, I acquired a cassette single with "Hurricane" on it. I listened to it a lot. I don't know where that cassette has gone...but I still remember most of the words.

Bob singing on a Victoria's Secret commercial, I would have loved to be in the room when they came up with that one.

Bob's refusal to become "the voice of a generation," or otherwise kowtow to public expectations. That or "Tangled Up in Blue."

Visions Of Johanna! "He’s sure got a lot of gall to be so useless and all" may be my favorite line ever. Also theme time radio hour! Don't know much about Jakob but I'm glad he's bringing Neko and Kelly back to Albany!

hands down, bob dylan in the traveling wilburys. my parents bought the albums when i was a kid and made tapes of them to play on family road trips. i have vivid memories of singing the chorus of "tweeter and the monkey man" at the top of my lungs with my dad (who conveniently substituted "well" for "hell" in the line "all the way to hell..."). i still listen to those albums occasionally, and they just fill me with nostalgia and joy. what a great group of musicians.

I thought Dylan, potrayed by Luke Perry on the original 90210, was an intriguing character. So tortured.

This one time my friend Ryan and I bought 24oz. cans of Hurricane Malt Liquor, and tried to finish them within the 8 minute time span of the song "Hurricane." It took us till "Mozambique." That stuff is gross. Good song, though.

Lay Lady Lay!

one half of the "Sprouse Bros" (the original Jo. Bros) (the better Bro)

I agree with Katie about the wilburys, classic album. My fav dylan song, "With God On Our Side".

The last lines of Positively 4th Street.

Favorite Bob Dylan video: "Subterranean Homesick Blues."

Why, the Uber-shiek Dylan Hotel, of course! On 41st, nestled between Madison & Park.

The song "Hazel" by Bob

my favorite dylan moment(s) would have to be all the hours spent listening when i was in middle & high school...and of course the three bob dylan shows and one jakob dylan show i've been to. favorite b. dylan song: desolation row. favorite dylan look: 1960's crazy hair, skinny jeans, and cowboy boots. yum.

Dylan Thomas - Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night.

Who are da five greatest rappers of all time?

Dylan...Dylan...Dylan, Dylan, and Dylan.

Hurricane...Bob Dylan

My favorite thing about Bob Dylan is "Brownsville Girl".

My favorite thing about Jakob Dylan (this week, at least) is Neko Case. I am perennially amazed by the fact that she isn't anywhere near as successful as she deserves to be.

Leopard Skin Pill Box Hat

Tough choice, but one of my favorite live albums is Bob's '64 Halloween show released on the Bootleg Series Volume 6.

all day and all night

I would have to say it was when Dylan McKay hooked up with Valerie on 90210

I'm with Obama... "Maggie's Farm"

Before there was a Bob Dylan, or a Jakob Dylan, there was a Dylan Thomas, who once wrote, "Do not go gentle into that good night/Old age should burn and rave at close of day/
Rage, rage against the dying of the light."

I'll go with Bev and vote for Dylan Thomas' awesome poem - if only because I could never choose just one favorite Bob Dylan song!

My favorite "Dylan" is Dewey Cox's "Dylan period" in Walk Hard.

Favorite thing by a Dylan would be "Every Grain of Sand" from Bob Dylan. Beautiful, haunting song from 1981's "Shot Of Love."

And yes, my middle name came from Bob as well.

Hands down, Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat. It makes my man move in some pretty alarming and amusing ways.

It Aint Me Babe!

The first time I heard Positively 4th Street is my favorite Bob Dylan memory... that and the Wilburys

Bob's voice, of course. Can't see him going gently into any night, dark or otherwise.

I saw Bob Dylan a few years ago at Bethel Woods (the SPAC-like amphitheater on the original Woodstock site). He didn't acknowledge the audience the entire time, until the very end when they were finished and he said into the mic "The last time we were here, we played at 2 in the morning, and it was raaaaaaaining," and the entire place erupted in cheers.

the roots covering masters of war at bonarroo; 3 verses to the tune of the star spangled banner, 3 to masters of war, and 3 to machine gun by hendrix

I love that "Blowing in the Wind" was the first song in the Girl Scout Song Book when I was a wee Brownie. I'm pretty sure the song book was my mom's but still, it's kind of cool.

I love all of the above but I'll pick Dylan Thomas' "Do not go gentle into that good night" as my top choice... (I do appreciate the 90210 choices as well!)

hands down, dylan's music video for his christmas song "must be santa"

I'd forever talk to you
But soon my words
They would turn into a meaningless ring
For deep in my heart
I know there is no help I can bring
Everything passes
Everything changes
Just do what you think you should do
And someday, maybe
Who knows, baby
I'll come and be cryin' to you.

-Bob Dylan, To Ramona

"Visions Of Johanna" has been my favorite Dylan song ever since I first discovered "Blonde on Blonde" back in early high school! Still my favorite Dylan album to this day.

Tangled Up In Bluuuuueeee

"Under Milk Wood," the play by Dylan Thomas

How about this. Dylan Byrne was one of the directors for Phoenix's 1901 video. That's my vote.

I've always been partial to Girl From The North Country.

My favorite thing by a Dylan comes from the character of Dylan on the Canadian-produced teen soap "Fifteen" that aired stateside on Nickelodeon.

Another male teen character asks, "is that a threat?"

Dylan, stiffening up and striking as threatening a posture as is possible given his Canadian ancestry, looks the young gentleman right in the eye and says "No...that's a PROMISE."

really love Jakob Dylan and 3 Legs new CD - my fave song is 'Everybody's Hurtin' - just awesome! really dig Kelly Hogan - can only imagine she will be hooking up with a record deal soon! should be a great show! thank you AOA for the opportunity! ;-)

The Blood on the Tracks New York Sessions.

If you love the officially released album you have to hear it in its original form: bare, raw, and blisteringly emotional. Easy to find these days, what with these internets and all.

I'm a Jakob Dylan fan. Slow Train Coming is one of my favorite Bob Dylan Albums. Our oldest son is named Dylan :)

Dizzee Rascal, AKA Dylan Kwabena Mills. Listen to 'Where Da G's' and try not to laugh. It's so bad that it's good.

"I ain't say you treated me unkind. You could've done better, but I don't mind. You just kind of wasted my precious time. Don't think twice, it's alright."

-- Bob Dylan, "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright"

my favorite thing about by a dylan is from "Something Good This way Comes" by Jakob Dylan.

"The trouble doll, is not moving mountains,
but digging the ground that you're on."

deep, man.

My favorite thing by a dylan is Joan Baez covering "It Ain't Me, Babe"

Well, Dylan wrote it!

I was in NYC for 9/11 and Dylan came to the Garden in November. Everybody was still feeling raw. He played half a set without saying anything. Then he played "Just Like Tom Thumbs Blues" with its last line, "I'm going back to New York City, I do believe I've had enough" and he belted it out. The place went wild. He stopped, it got quiet, and he said in the raspy Dylan voice, "I recorded half these songs in New York City. The rest I wrote here. You don't have to tell me about New York City." The place erupted, shook with applause. It was like he hugged us, all 20,000 at once. Best hug I ever got.

My favorite thing about Bob Dylan is he is still "the only Bob Dylan"....nothing compares.

I commented late since my job takes me away from show. Having seen Jakob Dylan before, you're in for a treat.

My favorite Dylan moment is when he had The Band backing him up. Before the Flood is simply magical.
