I just got back from the Steely Dan show at The Wang Theater Boston. It was a hair raising night. The Dan rocked the house. They came out and did the whole Aja album in order as they were supposed to. Donald got up after Aja and the crowd gave a standing O. Donald then started telling the story of how a Boston.com reporter (said her name) gave them slack on a phone interview on how they weren't playing The Royal Scam in Boston. He said she callenged them to play The Scam. Then Donald looks at the crowd and says, We're gonna run the guantlet here- Do you guys wanna hear The Royal Scam! The place went nuts. Then Donald says Ok you got it. The Royal Scam. He sits down and rips right into Kid Charlemagne. After The Scam they went off and came back on for a five song encore that included Hey 19,Boston Rag,Love That Dirty Water (Oh Boston Your My Home) and My Old School. Energy was very high and the place looked about 90% full. Going to Ratdog in Hampton tomorrow and Friday it's Steely Dan Round 2.

OMG!!! This is an embarrassment of riches! Aja AND The Royal Scam back-to-back?!?!?!?! Boston got very lucky last night - would have loved to be in the audience for this one. (Long time Steely Dan fan here!) Thanks for sharing the review!

Glad to read the great review. Going to The Beacon on Royal Scam night 8/10. That's my favorite SD album, but I also expect to hear a lot from Aja that night also. I always enjoy a SD show.
