Turns out it's too hot for Bob Dylan in Phoenix -- the legendary singer-songwriter canceled his Tuesday show at Camelback Ranch -- but you've got another chance to get tangled up in Bob next Wednesday as Jim Bachmann (check out Jim playing an Alan Jackson cover for The Sun Sessions here) and the gang are getting together to do a night of Dylan covers at Yucca Tap Room on August 19. Hans Olson, Walt Richardson, Mark Zubia and other stalwarts of the Tempe scene are scheduled to play, some acoustic, some electric.
