Steely Dan Live

Last month we saw Steely Dan at the Beacon – incredible shows.

I went on a Monday night with Bill for Aja, the Dan’s 1977 album. The title track is amazing:

On Tuesday night I brought Mrs P, Anna and Tuck for The Royal Scam, from 1976. Best track, “The Caves of Altimira”:

They played “My Old School”, “Hey 19”, “Peg”, “Reelin’ in the Years”, and all sorts of hits. Plenty of Dan Fans were singing along in the audience – there was a very close-knit feel in the crowd. The Beacon is a beautiful theatre and I highly recommend it to all.

For a better explanation of why The Royal Scam┬áis so awesome, check out this guy’s blog, where I cribbed the photo of Fagen.
