Steely Dane, January 5, Pabst Theater, 144 E Wells St (steelydane .com)
Regular readers of this blog know that title is no misprint, but the name of a remarkable musical aggregation from Dane County. Comprised of nearly two dozen members of other Madison area bands, their label as “the ultimate Steely Dan tribute band” doesn’t really do them justice. Their ability to replicate the complex arrangements of the Dan’s original classic records is nothing short of amazing! Their Milwaukee visits are always cause for celebration, so break out the hats and hooters and head for the Pabst this Friday night! This show is guaranteed to chase those post-holiday blues!
