waiting for Dylan in Pawtuckett

We are sixth or so in line in front the imposing stadium security gate at McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket , Rhode Island .

It is August 24, 2006 and it is early hours yet – only 2:30 – which leaves us with three hours before we can even enter the stadium where we will see Bob Dylan. If you count the warm-up acts as part of our wait, we have about six or so hours of waiting time before Bob Dylan comes on stage.

So we wait. We wait for Phil, a friend of our cousin, and we for our cousin - Evander. So we wait. We wait for Phil and Evander, but mostly, we wait for Bob. >>more
