first_imgJoe Russo’s Almost Dead has been on a tear in the back half of 2016, treating fans to their uniquely potent tribute to the Grateful Dead. The band continues to not only perform songs from the Dead repertoire, but to try new things and keep fans on their toes.Last night’s show at the House of Blues Boston was no exception, blurring the lines of Grateful Deadism with their own original music. Almost Dead has been known to work in various unique covers, and last night’s show featured not one but two jams that touched on music from the Benevento/Russo Duo: “9×9” and “My Pet Goat”. Of course, both Marco Benevento and Joe Russo are members of Almost Dead, and the two have been rehearsing for their upcoming revival of The Duo on Jam Cruise.The show was chock full of Grateful classics as well, including this smoldering rendition of “Althea.” Check out a 15 minute video of the jam below, courtesy of Brosef Wilson on YouTube.Joe Russo and the crew will make their way to Dominican Holidaze, where they’re scheduled to perform tomorrow as part of that beloved destination event.
