Huge Steely Dan fan..been drumming to them since the late 70's....child prodigy.. ; )
Anyway, they are in town on August 5th...
Oak Room looks more my style but open to any and all suggestions.
Heh, free booze? Hmmm....
Funny thing is I say this same thing every tour, then wind up crumbling at the last minute and buying a ticket. Life is short, and they're not getting any younger.
Saw Donald Fagen on his solo tour last year, and that was an amazing show. Epic version of Nightfly, with very long outro full of great improv. Apparently Walter will be touring at some point, supporting his new one.
If I wind up going I will let you know.
Someday I want to be a moderator, then I can also have no fun.
I saw Steely Dan live back in 1972 in Lincoln, Nebraska (they were the opening act for Frank Zappa).
Before the show we ate at an Italian restaurant not far from the venue. The place was far and above ANY Italian restaurant I'd ever eaten at up until then (and I grew up in the NY area). We were totally blown away by the homestyle Northern Italian fare (and the concert as well...what a show!).
Racking my brain to remember the name of the place (a small, mom & pop family run joint, probably long gone by now)...I never did make it back there. We drove to the concert from central Iowa and 4 months later, I'd switched to a college back home in NJ.
