Stop pretending to care about sports that you don’t actually care about.

"We came here to see the authentic Dylan, the one with the Stratocaster guitar and signature wild blues-rock band behind him," audience member Robert Hochschild said. "Then he walks out with these puffy headphones, some turntables, and a laptop?
Many more details will be trickling out over the next two weeks, but for now … be one of the first to check out the awesome “Sleep Rules Everything Around Me,” the first leak off of 13 Chambers. Perfect for 4th of July BBQ’s.
