Jakob Dylan is coming to “The End” when his band, The Wallflowers, headlines the "Montauk Music Festival Rocks the Lighthouse Benefit Concert" on Aug. 13 with special guest country singer Jessica Lynn. The show serves as a fundraiser for the Montauk Point Lighthouse and will take place under the stars at the foot of the National Historic Landmark.
Dylan, 52, is the son of Nobel laureate singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, and launched his own successful career out from underneath his father’s long shadow. Hits like “One Headlight,” “6th Avenue Heartache” and “Three Marlenas” permeated the airwaves in the mid-90s off the band’s multiplatinum sophomore album, “Bringing Down the Horse.” Currently, The Wallflowers are touring behind their latest effort, “Exit Wounds,” which features the single “Roots and Wings.”
