I haven’t been to SPAC in about 15 years, but I was absolutely not going to miss seeing Steely Dan in my own backyard. My friend Thor was my date, and although the forecast was foreboding, we arrived armed with umbrellas, ponchos and chairs so that we didn’t have to sit on the wet, muddy ground.
My biggest worry with SPAC was that since we had lawn seats, the sound wouldn’t be that good. Those fears were quickly assuaged when Steve Winwood took the stage. He couldn’t sound more clear if I was listening to a CD in my car.
