Joe Russo’s Almost Dead has found a new home this summer. JRAD and their voracious approach to the Dead catalogue actually is at home in many venues including LOCKN and the Capitol Theatre. This summer, they added the newly christened Westville Music Bowl in New Haven, CT to the list.
JRAD performed on three separate weekends at Westville this summer for a total of 9 shows. After their final show this past weekend, a banner commemorating their 9-show residency this summer was unraveled from the rafters of the stadium.
In their LOCKN shows earlier in the summer, JRAD showed off their ability to jam and explore other catalogue’s including Pink Floyd’s. JRAD ended their 9th show with some more Floyd—a soaring cover of “Comfortably Numb” that segued into an equally spine tingling “Morning Dew.”
