    Steely Dan and Gov Mule playing at the same time on Friday. I'd be pissed if I had to choose that one.

    The Newport Jazz Fest was right down the road (aboot a half mile) from our tiny two store shoe box Navy housing apart in 1988.
    I watched from a far for a few hours.
    Very enjoyable music.
    Nice day too.
    True story.

    Damn, that is tough
    I would go mule, though
    Steely Dan do not seem to enjoy playing live. No improv or jamming
    Mule exist to play live
