We're sure you, like most of the ChunkyCrew, are dying to attend the Americanarama Festival of Music. Chances are the mini-festival's incredible bill doesn't need introduction, but here it is anyway - Bob freakin' Dylan, freakin' Wilco, and My Morning freakin' Jacket. But we've got one question...can you handle all the RAWK?! If you think you can, read on to find out how you can enter to win a pair of lawn tickets to the stellar, star-studded show at Merriweather Post Pavilion on July 23!
As we all know, Bobby Dylan has aged quite a bit since his fresh-faced days playing Newport Folk Festival in '60's, but the legend is still going strong. Over fifty years into his career, at age seventy-one, the singer-songwriter released his thirty-fifth studio album, Tempest, in 2012. Although his unique voice is fading, music lovers and Dylan diehards continue to flock Dylan's live shows and soak up any new material the creative genius releases.
Legendary in their own right are co-headliners Wilco and My Morning Jacket. Each band, like Dylan, has had decades-long careers, with Wilco reaching nearly twenty years as a band and My Morning Jacket clocking in at fifteen. Since forming in 1994, Wilco has released eight studio albums, with 2001's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot establishing the band's long-lasting impact and involvement in the alternative and experimental rock scenes. The Whole Love, the six-piece "dad rockers'" most recent studio release, earned the group a Grammy nomination in 2012 for Best Rock Album. That same awards season, My Morning Jacket received a nomination for Best Alternative Music Album for Circuital, their sixth album since forming in 1998 at the hands of visionary vocalist and guitarist Jim James.
