If you're planning to go see the Dan o' Steel live, you'd do almost as well to find a set list from one of the band's recent shows, duplicate the song order on an iPod playlist and listen to it on a decent stereo. Donald Fagen and Walter Becker, the notoriously perfectionist studio rats behind such classics as "Kid Charlemagne" and "Deacon Blues," generally reproduce their songs almost note-for-note during live shows. On the other hand, you wouldn't have the chance to take a bathroom break during Becker's solo songs. For those who haven't upgraded their Steely Dan collection to digital, the band performs 8 p.m. Thursday at Nokia Theatre, Grand Prairie. Tickets are $55 to $125. Visit ticketmaster.com.
