One of the most notable highlights of the first two years of the Asbury Park Music & Film Festival was the “Dylan Archives” session last year, featuring rare Dylan concert and TV footage. And a “Dylan Archives II” show has been scheduled for this year. It will take place April 22 at 3 p.m. at House of Independents; tickets go on sale today at noon at apmff.org and the Stone Pony box office.
As was the case last year, the clips will come from Dylan’s personal archives, which are now owned by the University of Tulsa. Dylan’s manager, Jeff Rosen, is on the festival’s board.
Also newly announced: A conversation between E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg and Grammy Museum executive director Bob Santelli, April 22 at 4:45 p.m. at House of Independents. Tickets for this will also go on sale today at noon.
