Picks of the week
MOSTLY DYLAN Austin singer-songwriter Robin Wiley (pictured) and two-time Grammy-award nominated producer and singer-songwriter Frankie Fuchs who are currently collaborating on a recording project, will pay tribute to Bob Dylan along with a who’s who of Southern California’s singer-songwriters who collectively boast a mile-long laundry list of songwriting and recording credits. They are Bob Jones, Rabbit Mackay, Carl Byron (keyboards) and (everyone’s fingers are crossed) Danny Wilson. Be prepared to hear a few of your favorites from Dylan’s canon, as well as some of his more obscure work and at least one or two anthemic numbers to sing along to. Saturday, Nov. 28 at Zoey’s Cafe, 451 E. Main St., Ventura. 652-1137, www.zoeyscafe.com
