VODKA VODKA returns in February. Limited early bird tickets are on sale right now!

Steely Dan's Walter Becker and Donald Fagen recently posted a letter on their website in which they took some jabs at Owen Wilson. They called the actor out for pilfering their song "Cousin Dupree" (about an annoying slacker who shacks up on a relative's couch) for his latest movie, You, Me and Dupree (about an annoying slacker who shacks up on a friend's couch). "[You] didn't even bother to think up a new fucking name for the guy!" they write. The smartass tone of the dispatch pretty much sums up Steely Dan's M.O. of attacking Hollywood (and by extension, its hometown of L.A.) from within. The group's new Definitive Collection covers more than 30 years of songs like "Bad Sneakers," "Babylon Sisters," and "Dirty Work."
Fri., Sept. 1, 7:30 p.m.
