Joe Russo’s Almost Dead
Brooklyn Bowl – January 24, 2015
After Furthur decided to call it quits last year, Phil Lesh focused his efforts on continuing his main side project Phil and Friends. This past New Years, he invited some new friends to support him for his first New Year’s run on the East Coast since the Grateful Dead’s “Boston Tea Party” in 1969. These new friends were the members of the 2-year old Joe Russo’s Almost Dead (JRAD), creating a collaboration that he dubbed as PhilRAD. The reviews coming out of those shows were spectacular; showing why Phil chose JRAD despite the fact that they had only played 9 shows up to that point. What JRAD brings is a high-energy intensity to each song that separates them from other Dead cover bands. This past weekend JRAD returned to the place it all started for them a few years ago, New York’s Brooklyn Bowl, for 2 sold-out shows. We caught the Saturday night show, and while Friday featured a shocking 15 JRAD debuts, Saturday turned out to be a barnburner filled with many fan favorites and a few surprises.
JRAD came out of the gates firing with a 17 minute-long “Alligator” and thus proved they weren’t afraid to put their own spin on the Dead’s tunes. This jam also displayed their ability to break out of the song’s structure and fill the space with top-notch improvisation, a pattern that would last all night. They smoothly transitioned into “Jack-a-Roe” and took it for a ride highlighted by guitarist Scott Metzger’s (Bustle in Your Hedgerow) brilliant replication of Jerry’s western-style picking and Marco Benevento’s (Garage A Trois) soaring keyboard solos. A funk-driven “Uncle John’s Band” came next, bringing the energy to a climax before they launched into their debut of The Band’s “Ophelia”. This song choice certainly caught the audience off-guard, as the Dead surprisingly never covered “Ophelia”, but it ended up being perfectly placed while the energy was at a high and the crowd certainly dug it. A beautiful rendition of “Ramble On Rose” seemed to make everyone immediately shift from dancing like maniacs to soulfully belting lyrics with their best Jerry impressions. It would be a shame not to make note of Tom Hamilton’s (Brothers Past) guitar work in “Ramble”, making this rendition worthy of a re-listen. JRAD then surprised the audience with the country-rock hit “Only Daddy That’ll Walk the Line”, a Waylon Jennings song that was never played by the Dead, but was played by Jerry during his stints with the New Riders of the Purple Sage. The band closed out the set with “Bertha”, in which Marco Benevento again displayed his mastery of the keys with a roaring solo.
The second set got started with a “Music Never Stopped” that featured some very deep space, giving Hamilton the chance to fill the space wonderfully before building up to another great solo. Next came the highlight of the night, an 18-minute “Cumberland Blues”, which was never jammed out that long by the Dead (JRAD also played a 21-minute “Black Peter” on Friday). Bassist Dave Dreiwitz (Ween) and drummer Joe Russo (Furthur) provided an extraordinary background that allowed the others to take this song for a spin that included several “China Cat Sunflower” teases and open-ended improvisation. Performances like this give JRAD an original style that separates them from being “just another Dead cover band”. Its almost hard to believe that this band has only played 14 shows, as their phenomenal chemistry allows them to improvise like the best of them.
After a short break to thank the fans, the band continued on with a “Help on the Way / Slipknot!” that got delightfully weird. Russo shined in the instrumental “Slipknot!” section by slowing down the pace initially and gradually building it up to a thunderous climax. JRAD kept the crowd’s feet moving with yet another fan pleasing hit – “Shakedown Street”. While each member chipped in his own solo during the jam, Benevento’s keyboard work kept the energy flowing throughout this rendition. Again refusing to stick to any so-called rules about how the Dead’s music should be played, “Shakedown” eventually broke down into a very bluesy jam before they launched into “Truckin”. This was obviously well received and JRAD certainly did justice to the Dead’s arguably most popular song. Dreiwitz carried the song on the bass, showing that he has adopted Lesh’s style well and adjusts it to JRAD’s often-intense pace. “Truckin” eventually shifted into “Space” for a few minutes before they ended the set with passionate “Morning Dew”. While this band definitely takes a high-energy approach to most songs, this “Dew” proved they could execute the more delicate songs to perfection. Hamilton’s heart-felt vocals and Russo’s emotional drumming make this version a must-listen. After playing two unrelenting sets with absolutely no fillers, the band knew they had to squeeze whatever energy was left out of the crowd and that’s exactly what they did with the “Brown Eyed Woman” encore. This rendition was a culmination of JRAD’s fresh approach to recreating the Dead’s music with originality, complete with soaring jams from each member (especially Metzger) and the ability to instantly switch pace as a unit.
Joe Russo’s Almost Dead blew the roof off the Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday night, plain and simple. While the first set offered a mix of staples and surprises, the second set was dedicated to absolutely crushing the songs they knew best and pushing the limits of where the jams could go. It was the kind of set where it would be a regrettable decision to hit the bathroom, especially since the Bowl was packed from wall to wall. This band has certainly cemented itself as one of the top acts playing GD music, and their sound is completely different than some of the best ones like Dark Star Orchestra. While a DSO concert might recreate the feeling of being at a Dead show thirty years ago, JRAD’s philosophy is to inject some fresh energy into each song and create new music through the improvised sections. And so far in their brief existence, they’ve been able to execute that and create something really special.
JRAD will be touring heavily around the country this Winter and Spring. They also will be performing on the festival circuit this summer including a stop at Wakarusa and a headlining set at High Sierra Music Festival.

Contender for Best “Harry Hood” of All-Time
Picking the “best” version of any Phish song is certainly subjective, but there are often “go to” dates that fans can cite as the best version for many songs.
As I enjoyed listening to Phish this evening I came across one of my favorite renditions of “Harry Hood” from New Year’s Eve 1993 at Worcester Centrum Centre in Worcester, MA. The Hood appeared as the second to last song to conclude the 3rd set.
The first portion of the song is executed very well, but the improvisational passage at the end of the song just before the refrain, “you can feel good, good about hood, is very special. The epic jam, as most of you know, is a slow buildup towards a climatic peak with a very positive and happy energy. This jam seems to encapsulate the exploratory journey we all have through life and reminds us of all the great times we’ve enjoyed with my friends and family as Big Red, Cactus, Henrietta, and the Chairman of the boards ascend into a realm of uplifting musical bliss, the “IT” moment.
Let us know your favorite versions of “Harry Hood” in the comments section below.

Live at Higher Ground
Jan. 20, 2015 • Burlington, VT
By: Ted Kammerer
Imagine that band in college that you wouldn’t miss a night in a basement with, even if it meant missing a final the next day or sex with your girlfriend who only likes female vocalists in rock’n’roll. That band that even though you only had beers with the guitarist and drummer one hazy night, you instantly felt like old pals with the rest of the guys; the band that would make sure love happened, nights sealed in warm embraces and laughter. The band that, for a second and then some, made you feel a little bit better about life. Dr. Dog captures that raw innocence and exuberance that can usually only be found in those stars-aligning, whirlwind-of-discovery young bands, meeting each other during the formative, inspirational years of twenty-something.
Higher Ground has seen Dr. Dog become the band that they are today from just about their touring inception; the young band opened up for My Morning Jacket in 2004, way back when Higher Ground was still located in Winooski. Still raw and emotional at over 15 years a band without ever being patronizing or weepy, Dr. Dog never lost their voraciousness through the years on the road or in the studio, and Tuesday’s show at Higher Ground was a living testament to this. Amongst a hipster-kaliedescope stage display, (and I mean that in the most loving sense of the phrase) of fake palm trees and art-school flamingo backdrops, Dr. Dog honed in on a chemistry that started as genuine as it was accidental and developed it like a fine wine over the course of the night. Musically slinking and thrashing against each other, they tight-roped across both the dark sonic landscapes of tracks like “The Beach” and the sincere positivity found in “The Distant Light,” sussing out new sounds within their unique, folky songbook channeled though a pop-sensible fuzztone-musicbox. A tired listener is never in the ranks of their fans; each night is a different exercise in gritty exploration amongst songs both bubble-gum familiar like “Lonesome” or tracks like 2010’s “Shadow People” dusted off from the back pages of their repertoire.
They’ve earned themselves more followers than most any indie-hybrid band of their size, routinely selling out East Coast venues and drawing a whole lotta love out of cities like Burlington, VT. It’s really special to see a band that kind of defies genre, definition, or even expectation (and that isn’t a jamband or dubstep duo) get so much attention when they come to town. They’ve proven to fans both seasoned and green that they can still shake you all night long, show after show, like an old lover who just got back from a trip across a distant, mystical land. And if you didn’t already listen to them, then your friend whose taste in music you have always really respected has told you about them after you inquired about the warm, lo-fi, patchwork folk’n’roll sounds coming from his turntable and curiosity has been piqued, to say the least. Either way, you’re going to their next show.

We’re quite certain those intangible elements of artist magic and community will survive and flourish despite these inevitable forces of change.

Debuts Brand New Song at Panic En La Playa
Last night along the beaches of the Dominican Republic JB and the Home Team debuted a bring new song as a late second set treat. “Swear it Wasn’t Me” was nestled in a long second set segue: Driving Song > Shut Up and Drive > Party At Your Mama’s House (That Thang) > Drumz > Swear It Wasn’t Me ** > Driving Song > Breathing Slow.
There have been talks about a new Panic studio album for quite some time, but this is certainly some positive reinforcement to clear any doubts… THIS ALBUM WILL ROCK. Jimmy slays a lengthy guitar solo to kick off the track and John Bell ferociously attacks these lyrics rocking the signature “backwards hat”. In fact, the song sounds like a true rock n roll classic from the past with a traditional blues-based foundation.
Panic en la Playa really is a Disneyland for Panic fans and this bust-out last night is just one of many treats fans are enjoying on the beach ! Check back for post-show coverage of the event and follow us on Twitter for live updates of Panic En Playa.

ALO’s Tour d’Amour IX
10 California Cities February 12 – 27, 2015
with T Sisters and Fruition on select dates.
California-born ALO (Animal Liberation Orchestra) is back in their home state this February for Tour d’Amour IX, the band’s annual winter tour celebrating love – of music, for their many loyal fans, and their fondness for the Golden State.
Tour d’Amour IX launches February 12 in Los Angeles and winds south, north, and inland, hitting 10 cities throughout the 11 show run. Santa Barbara’s Soho will feature a 2015: a Love Odyssey theme night. The tour wraps up with two very special nights at San Francisco’s Fillmore on February 27 and 28 – “Flashback Friday” will include a start to finish performance of their Fly Between Falls album celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Saturday’s theme will be “Love Potion #9”. Joining ALO on ten of the Tour d’Amour dates are the rootsy and evocative T Sisters ; string-infused quintet Fruition will join them for one show at the Fillmore. New this year to the Tour d’Amour, on February 28 at The Fillmore the band hosts their first ever Sing-Along for Kids matinee. See below for the complete list of Tour d’Amour IX shows.
Each year, a portion of proceeds from Tour d’Amour are donated to non-profit organizations who work to bring music to children. For the duration of this ninth installment of the Tour d’Amour, money raised will benefit Creative Arts Charter School in San Francisco who provide hands-on, arts-integrated public education to primary and middle school students in the San Francisco Unified School District.
Tour d’Amour IX is a sort of homecoming for the members of ALO, as each of them have been working independently on some exciting musical projects. ALO guitarist Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz recently performed shows with The Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh and has been touring with Steve Kimock’s Tribute to Jerry Garcia, while bassist Steve Adams and keyboardist Zach Gill have been touring with Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers and Jack Johnson respectively.
Since the New Year, however, the guys in ALO – including drummer Dave Brogan – have been working on new songs, to be recorded this winter for their long time label home Brushfire Records. Beyond that, you can always count on ALO’s legendarily raucous and high energy live shows with love themes in the air, as the Tour d’Amour tradition promises once more to take the group and their audiences to new musical heights.

Band of the Week
For those who think the days of true Rock N Roll are only a thing of the past, Handsome Jack stands as living example to discredit such logic. The era of Classic Rock will always remain as a landmark of pure genius within the context of music history. However, the present day offers a great deal of talent from those who bring the sounds of the past together with their own unique energy that breathe new life to Rock N Roll.
Handsome Jack exudes a strong emphasis on roots rock and lyrical aptitude reminiscent of rock legends. Their self described “Boogie Rock” is infused with gritty guitar fuzz tones, feel-based pentatonic blues virtuosity, and strong grooves that succinctly compliment their vocal delivery.
About Handsome Jack:
HANDSOME JACK hails from Buffalo NY and began as a blues garage rock band. After high school they moved out of the garage and developed their sound into a natural soulful boogie that remains rooted in raw blues. They’ve shared the stage with The Sheepdogs, Blue Cheer, Gov’t Mule, J. Geils, The Hold Steady, and Robert Randolph to name a few.
