Eggy Rolls A Pair Of Debut Steely Dan Covers At Brooklyn Bowl
Listen to the location-appropriate premieres at a sold-out Brooklyn Bowl.
Connecticut-based Eggy returned to Brooklyn Bowl in New York City for a sold-out concert on Saturday night. The band took the opportunity to debut a location-appropriate Steely Dan cover, which was one of two songs by Steely Dan premiered by the band that evening.
Eggy — guitarist Jake Brownstein, keyboardist Dani Battat, drummer Alex Bailey and bassist Mike Goodman — premiered their take on “Brooklyn (Owes the Charmer Under Me).” Steely Dan recorded the song, with David Palmer on lead vocals, for their 1972 debut album, Can’t Buy a Thrill.
The band followed the “Brooklyn” debut by transitioning into a 19-minute offering their original “All Wheels Turnin’.” After another original, this time a +20-minute “Sweat Equity,” Eggy debuted another Can’t Buy a Thrill track, serving up Steely Dan’s “Turn That Heartbeat Over Again.”
Eggy launched their Brooklyn Bowl set with “12 Pounds of Pain,” which segued into the recently added “Come Up Slow.” Next came a pairing of “One Stop Shop” with another relative newbie, “A Moments Notice.”
After the Steely Dan covers sandwich, Eggy filled in the rest of the set with Big Thief’s “Time Escaping” and their own “Smile.” Saturday’s encore featured elements of “Brooklyn (Owes the Charmer Under Me)” infused within the show ending “Wayless.”
