Tonight in live music; G. Love unplugged at Crowbar, Steely Dan and more

Still sad about Walter Becker.


✔️ = Critic's Pick

✔️ G. Love w/Kristy Lee Was there simply too much sound onstage when G. Love played a February full-band set at Jannus Live? Well, have no fear, because (just) G. Love is here for an intimate solo acoustic show at Crowbar in Ybor City. Expect the Philadelphia bluesman to delve into some storytelling at this one, and don’t be surprised if he throws more than a few extended harmonica solos at fans during what is part of a short four-date Florida run. Kristy Lee — who possesses one of the most powerful voices this side of Mobile, Alabama — opens the show. (Crowbar, Ybor City) INFO

✔️ Steely Dan w/Doobie Brothers In December of last year, just two months after the death of his bandmate Walter Becker, Donald Fagen assured fans that the show would go on. If it were up to Fagen, however, it would be under a different name. “I would actually prefer to call it ‘Donald Fagen and the Steely Dan Band’ or something like that,” he said on during an audio interview with Rolling Stone, adding that promoters have so far insisted that he call it “Steely Dan” for commercial reasons. “That’s an ongoing debate. To me, Steely Dan was just me and Walter, really — it was like a concept we had together.” No word on whether fans will get to hear an album that the pair were working on (it would’ve been the Dan’s first since 2003’s Everything Must Go), but do expect some heavy vibes at the show.
