Steely Dan dropped in at Harvey's Lake Tahoe last night on the Think Fast 2008 tour, and put on a masterful show. We couldn't have done it better ourselves. Lord knows, we've tried! A bunch of us were there to see them, and from pretty close up too. In fact, our vocalist/guitarist Michael Beaman got to meet Steely Dan guitarist Jon Harrington after the show... check it out!
