Last night I had the strangest dream...about Joan Baez. I dreamed that she married a guy she met in jail, that she went to Woodstock six-and-a-half months pregnant and almost changed her name to Rachel Sandperl. And also that she fooled around with Steve Jobs and got to see the 1984 Macintosh before most of the rest of the world. Then later she took to spending a lot of time in a treehouse. It was a weird dream, but according to Wikipedia, eerily accurate. I must be psychic. By the way, she's also a folk singer and social activist. Whichever side of the Baez interests you--the three-octave range or the esoterica--check her out at An Evening With Joan Baez and Friends 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Lakewood Theater, 1825 Abrams Parkway. Tickets are $39 to $59 and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com.
