It’s that time again where end of the year shows are getting announced and an amazing show is coming to The Capitol Theatre to start off what should be a great weekend of music. Joe Russo’s Almost Dead will be playing the legendary building on December 27th. Made up of great musicians and friends of Joe Russo including Marco Benevento, Tom Hamilton, Dave Dreiwitz, and Scott Metzger, this quintet demolishes the catalog of The Grateful Dead like few bands have.
In January of this year, the group played one show at The Brooklyn Bowl to rave reviews. The show was quickly being hailed as the best Dead-related act around with towering jams that had peaks that haven’t been seen in Dead music in a very long time. That show can be downloaded here from Archive.org. Fans have been hoping that the group would do more shows and this is sure to sell-out quickly. Tickets go on sale Friday here.
