Here's a good way to tell you've made it: when your name becomes an adjective. There have been enough singer-songwriters who've been dubbed "dylanesque" over the years to populate a small island nation (though the male-to-female ratio would be troubling). But there's no need to delve into the world of dylanesque artists when you can have the real thing. In October, Bob Dylan heads to Seattle for three nights of shows at the Paramount Theatre (Oct 17–19).
Oct 17–19, Paramount Theatre, $46–$330
