The Hollywood Bowl will get a little bit country, and a little bit whacked-out experimental pop this season. Keith Urban and Björk have each announced new dates at the venue over the summer and fall. Björk's June 11 Bowl show continues her long-running tour for her latest album, "Biophilia. " The tour, which incorporates a heavy visual and multimedia component, will also make two stops at the Hollywood Palladium on June 2 and 5 with an idiosyncratic "in-the-round" stage setup. While in L.A., the singer will also collaborate with MOCA to expand the universe of her "Biophilia" app package, which deconstructs the songs and allows users to get their hands dirty in manipulating its sounds.

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.

Two experiences that helped foster my devotion to music, growing up, were watching Leonard Bernstein's "Young People's Concerts" and going to the Hollywood Bowl. Thanks to Bernstein, I began to sense the wonder of music. Thanks to the $1 seats at the top of the Bowl, I had the opportunity to get out of the living room and hear the likes of the great violinist Jascha Heifetz. He sounded dimmer and looked even tinier on the stage of the distant shell than he did on a 1950s TV screen.
