Steely Dan kicks off this week’s adventure in concert data with a round of August dates in the U.S.A. New shows include August 5 in Pala, California, at Starlight Theatre; August 15 in Clarkston, Michigan, at the D.T.E.; August 16 in Chicago, Illinois, at Chicago Theatre; August 20 in Houston, Texas, at Verizon Wireless Theater; August 21 in Grand Prairie, Texas, at Nokia Theatre At Grand Prairie; and August 24 in Saratoga, California, at The Mountain Winery.

The Felice Brothers add several new shows this morning for Vermont, Massachusetts, Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois and California. Stops include September 4 in So. Burlington, VT; September 5 in Northampton, MA; September 14 in Alexandria, VA, at Birchmere; and September 20 in Chicago, IL.

Country music singer / songwriter Chris Knight updates today with a few September gigs – September 5 is Atlanta at Smith’s Olde Bar; September 10 is Asheville, NC, at Grey Eagle and September 11 is Raleigh, NC, at The Pour House Music Hall.

We should probably clarify that the new listings for Abe Vigoda are for the punk band from Los Angeles and not for the actor who played Sgt. Fish on the long-running sitcom “Barney Miller.” New July stops include Athens, GA (July 4), July 6 (Charlotte, NC), July 18 (Chicago, IL) and July 23 (Calgary, AB).

During the first 90 minutes of biz, we opened up the offices, fed the cats and updated the schedules for Booker T. Jones, Bettye Lavette, , John Nemeth, No Age, Snoop Dogg, The Jesus And Mary Chain, Thin Lizzy, Mogwai and The Ides Of March feat. Jim Peterik.

But that’s just a glimpse of the massive amount of data, a veritable mountain of dates, cities and venues that awaited us when we reported for duty this morning. Don’t miss your Midday Update, coming up around 12 noon (PDT), from!
