Jakob Dylan, formerly of The Wallflowers, played a quiet, intimate set at the NON-COMMvention in Philadelphia on May 31. Showcasing more than half of the songs from his first solo album, Seeing Things, Dylan departed from his old band's formulas with a spare sound and ominous lyrics. When Dylan played "Three Marlenas" — from The Wallflowers' second album, Bringing Down the Horse — he joked that the audience was finally figuring out who he was.

Dylan, Kathleen Edwards, and Alejandro Escovedo all took the NON-COMM stage as part of a single lineup. Dr. John, Ani DiFranco, The Hold Steady, and Newton Faulkner performed at the convention the night before. NON-COMM is an annual convention of non-commercial radio programmers and music directors, as well as other music-industry professionals.
