Joe Russo’s Almost Dead kicked off a three night run at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY on Friday night. The run at the Cap is followed by a month off until JRAD hits the road for their winter tour.
The Grateful Dead tribute band usually sticks to Dead tunes and the covers that the Dead covered during their 30 year tenure. Aside from teases, a full-on cover of say, Motorhead is a rarity for JRAD. Russo and his band went full-on Motorhead with a debut of “Fast and Loose” at the Cap on Friday night.
