Bob Dylan Tribute
By David Johanssen
Bob Dylan once remarked: “I’m speaking for all of us; I’m the spokesman for a generation.” The world was changing and musicians like Dylan were writing protest songs against the establishment, maybe more timely today than ever. Join some of San Miguel’s finest musicians for our tribute to this legendary singer-songwriter at Shelter Theater, Friday, Apr 7 at 7pm. Local greats Tom Driscoll, William Henderson, Wendy Sievert, Tony & Bunny, and others will all be performing Dylan’s timeless works at what is sure to be a major event. Tickets available at La Biblioteca and online at sheltervg4.com.

Friday, Mar 31 at 7pm: Back Road Love: Rusty Nelson and Sue Young. Sue’s lilting soprano blends perfectly with Rusty’s rough-edged vocals to evoke a simpler time in their native Austin TX. “The songs speak for the Marelves … from Irish toe-tappers to sentimental ballads and love songs.”—KPFT. Tickets available at Biblioteca and online at sheltervg4.com.
Guitar Greats: Hopalong and Rolando. Guitar legends and local San Miguel favorites Rolando Gotes and Jose Luis “Hopalong” Gonzales come together for a live concert Saturday, Apr 1, at 7pm as the town’s finest guitar teacher’s work weaves their musical magic as they have for decades at the finest venues in town. You’ve never heard the guitar made love to the way these Latin soul-men can make her sing! Hopalong will also show his visual artistry with a display of his photos in the lobby, most of which will be for sale.
Wednesday, Apr 5 at 5pm, Shelter is proud to join with cinemas across the US to share the cautionary 1984 by George Orwell. Movie theaters across the United States are screening the dystopian classic starring John Hurt as the hapless Winston in protest of today’s events there. “Orwell’s portrait of a government which manufactures its own facts, demands total obedience and demonizes foreign enemies has never been timelier,” says organizer United States of Cinema. Join us to see just how closely Big Brother is watching us. Discussion to follow!
