Dylan Rolls Into California (PA) (CP’s Sat. 4/13/13)

1) Rock ‘n Roll’s traveling troubadour Bob Dylan graces California University of Pennsylvania’s Convocation Center with a concert tonight. With songs “Like a Rolling Stone,” “Blowin’ in the Wind,” and “Rainy Day Women #12 and #35,” Dylan’s presence has been long felt in the rock world. He still has an ambitious touring schedule and that’s great, because everybody should experience at least one Bob Dylan show. That said, remember, Dylan plays what Dylan wants to play. With special guest, L.A rock band Dawes. 7:30 p.m. California, Pa.

2) Downtown Pittsburgh will be an especially fun place tonight with two comedians headlining at two different  Cultural District venues.  The first one is Artie Lange,  supporting cast member on the Howard Stern Show for five years, is in town at the Byham for a night of laughs. Before signing with Stern Lange played the NYC comedy clubs and was part of the Mad TV troupe. He’s also a New York Times best-selling author with his memoir Too Fat to Fish  and he co-wrote and produced his own feature film, Beer League. 8 p.m. 101 6th St., Cultural District.

3) Secondly, Gabriel Iglesias: Stand-Up Revolution Tour plays the Benedum. Iglesias’  hilarity (no he’s not one of Julio Iglesias’ kids) is generated from high-energy parodies, storytelling, memorable characters, and, yes, spectacular sound effects, all based on his life experiences. Fun for all ages. 7:30 p.m. 237 7th St.7th, Cultural District.

4)As the song suggests, break out your “Moet et Chandon from her pretty cabinet,” Queen tribute band, One Night of Queen, performed by Gary Mullen & The Works, plays the Carnegie Library Music Hall.  8 p.m.   510 E. 10th Ave., Munhall.
