After a blistering night in Eugene, OR, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead continued their Pacific Northwest run in Redmond, WA. JRAD traveled to the serene Marymoor Park Amphitheater last Saturday which was the second show in the three night Pacific Northwest run.
The boys started off with a jam that built into a peak before the opening lyrics to a sultry “Crazy Fingers” that included a Coltrane “Love Supreme” tease.
JRAD included plenty of other nuggets throughout the show including a Soundgarden and Kenny Loggins tease in the sprawling “Throwing Stones” encore.
