Watch Bob Weir’s Full Performance With Joe Russo’s Almost Dead

first_imgJoe Russo’s Almost Dead played their two shows in California this weekend at House of Blues in San Diego and the Fox Theater in Oakland. During their Saturday night show, guitarist and songwriter Bob Weir showed up to see for himself what the buzz surrounding the band is all about. Joe Russo, Dave Dreiwitz, Marco Benevento, Tom Hamilton and Scott Metzger don’t just play Grateful Dead tunes, they reinvent them in a modern, enhanced way. So to see the two forces come together was a spectacular moment for fans.As the band went into their acoustic portion of the performance, which has become somewhat of a regular thing since their most recent Brooklyn Bowl run, Weir emerged after the opening “It Must Have Been The Roses” to contribute his guitar playing and vocals on Bob Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” Grateful Dead’s “Black Throated Wind,” Dylan’s “When I Paint My Masterpiece” and Bobby’s “Cassidy.” You can watch the full performance below, courtesy of YouTube user TimeZonerTV:Joe Russo’s Almost Dead @ The Fox Theatre 11/12/16:Set 1 (8:00PM – 10:13PM)Jam ->Good Lovin’ (SM) ->Cumberland Blues (All) ->Help On The Way (TH) @ ->Slipknot! ->Music Never Stopped (SM)He’s Gone (TH) >The Wheel # (All) >Jackstraw $ (SM & TH)Acoustic Set ^ (No Set Break)Must Have Been The Roses % (TH)Hard Rain Is Gonna Fall + (BW)Black Throated Wind + (BW)When I Paint My Masterpiece + (BW)Cassidy + (BW) ->Let It Grow Jam + ->Cassidy + (BW)Set 2 (10:33PM – 11:59PM)King Solomon’s MarblesRow Jimmy (TH)Estimated Prophet (SM) ->Uncle John’s Band (All)Eyes Of The World && (TH) ->Jam *->Throwing Stones (SM) ->Deal Jam & ->Throwing Stones (SM) ->Hey Bulldog Jam ^ ->Throwing Stones (SM)E: One More Saturday Night (SM)@ – Proceeded by an emphatic “Shakedown Street” Tease# – With an “Head Over Heels” (Tears for Fears) Tease (MB)$ – During the jam before the final “We can share the women…” lyrics, the stage was transformed seamlessly for the acoustic set.
