What follows are a few random observations and notes about Bob Dylan's set at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday night. --As a 15-song display of his work, Bob Dylan's show was unimpeachable. Few of his fans could complain about one that began, for example, with his saucy “You Ain't Goin' Nowhere” and ended with a frolic through “Blowin' in the Wind.” In between he played “Tangled Up in Blue,” “Love Sick,” "Make You Feel My Love," “All Along the Watchtower,” and “Desolation Row,” among others.

MUSIC '80s nostalgia was the order of the day for much of the aughts, but the Totally '80s Hollywood Bowl show reminds us what people actually listened to back then. The B-52s, Human League, the Fixx and Berlin cut some of the decade's most iconic tracks, and if you don't want to cuddle with a significant other during "Take My Breath Away," you don't deserve to wear leggings and headbands. Hollywood Bowl, 2301 N. Highland Ave., L.A. 7:30 p.m. Fri. $25-$100. http://www.hollywoodbowl.com.
