OPEN FOR DYLAN
BOB Dylan has toured with various collaborators in the past
few years. His 1986 tour featured Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as his
backing group, and in 1987, he hit the stadiums with the Grateful Dead.
Perhaps the best of his recent tours was a year ago, featuring a lean and
spare group led by G.E. Smith.

Now Dylan is back with a new tour that makes its way to the Bay Area tonight.
This time it isn't Dylan's collaborators who might give him a kick in the
pants, but the group opening his shows. The Pogues are a feisty, punk-traditional
Irish and English group that plays music as fresh and original (if not as
epochal) as Dylan's was years ago. In fact, the Pogues just might make Dylan
play up to himself.
Dylan and the Pogues play at 7 tonight at the Greek Theater at the University
of California, Berkeley. $20. (408) 998-2277, (415) 762-2277.
