Update: Thanks to Peter Costello and Eric McRoberts for the ultra mix!
Joe Russo’s Almost Dead headed west this week for a short, but kick-ass three nights in LA and Oakland. After a pair of shows at the Teragram Ballroom in LA, JRAD headed up the coast for one more show at the Fox Theater in Oakland.
After a monster show, JRAD came out for not just one, but two encores! Joe Russo and the Almost Dead proved they still had some mileage in the tank with a killer “Loser > New Minglewood Blues.” Fingers crossed that these shows were recorded!
Thanks to Deadheadland Films for the footage!
Deadheadland Films also posted the final song of JRAD’s first encore, “Touch of Grey” with a “Black Throated Wind” tease.
