Steely Dan

Steely Dan is starting their annual Beacon Theatre run. I wasn't planning on attending this year as the concept of playing an entire album or taking internet requests seemed a bit hokey, especially for Donald and Walter, and the prices are quite steep.

Then I found out that the great Larry Carlton will be joining the Dan for a few shows. This, I could not miss and will be going Friday night to see The Royal Scam with Larry Carlton playing his famous solos from the album. Dont miss this if you get the chance.

Other than the Dead, Steely Dan was my favorite band growing up in the 70s because their studio albums are masterpieces, although they never toured. Kind of like the "anti-Grateful Dead." Its ironic that they are still around touring these days.

Neil Young in Omaha tonight

Was simply unbefuckinliveable !
This was a 'make-up show' for a show that was canceled last November. Neil said "some rocket scientist booked us here on election day". So Neil showed up tonight to make up for it. And wow, did he ever. First a band called Everest played and they were acceptable. Then the Neville Bros just tore it up for about 8 songs. I must catch them as headliners to get a longer set. Just tremendous.
Then Neil, first song out of the gate Mr. Soul, then When You Dance, and it just went on and on and on, new stuff like Fuel Line, Light a Candle, Mother Earth, Spirit Road, interspersed with Pochahontas & Me, Tonight's the Night, Cinnamin Girl, a scathing 20 minute Down By the River. His guitar-work and vocals are as good as I have ever heard from Neil. In the middle of his electric onslaught he picks up the acoustic and the band leaves and we get "Needle and the Damage Done" then Ben Keith and the band come back and treat us to 'Old Man' and 'Heart of Gold' complete with Ben's ethereal pedal steel guitar work.
There were about a dozen other songs, old and new that I can't recall.
BUT for the encore Neil and his band played a stratospheric "Day in the Life" and shreds his guitar with feedback breaking every string on that crescendo in that Beatles tune. It was masterful, incredible, Neil's a guitar hero of the highest order, no shit, it was that amazing. Don't miss Neil Young if he is coming anywhere that you can get to. I was floored.
And next week I get to see THE DEAD ;o}
and then I rest up for July and the 10klakefest with Widespread Panic, DMB, Wilco and many others. This is gonna be wonderful.
