Joe Russo’s Almost Dead set up shop at their home, Brooklyn Bowl for night two of a three night run. The first night included a couple of bust-outs a debut, and JRAD treated fans to the same on night two.
Anytime a show opens with “Eyes of the World,” you know you’re in for a good time! JRAD even tucked in a “What’s Going On?” tease during Eyes.
The big debut came at the end of the first set. It’s hard to believe, but it took JRAD 144 shows before they played “Next Time You See Me.” The Junior Parker tune was a staple of Pigpen-era Grateful Dead.
