For Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s 38th installment of Taper Tuesdays, the band has just released soundboard audio from their performance at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, Colorado on April 28th. Their sold-out Ogden performance came ahead of their arena debut at Colorado’s 1st Bank Center with Medeski, Martin, & Wood, a performance that was originally scheduled for Red Rocks Amphitheatre but changed last minute due to weather concerns. During their Friday show at the Ogden, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead put on a fiery and high-spirited performance for fans, hinting that while the weather was not ideal, they had no plans of slowing down.Now For Something Completely Different: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s Spectacular Arena Debut [Full Audio]Highlights of the night included the “Viola Lee Blues” toward the start of the first set, which included a duo jam from Joe Russo and Marco Benevento; the debut of a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Tell Me, Momma” sung by Scott Metzger; Almost Dead’s ever-popular cover of “Atlantic City”; the tail-end of the second set (“Dancing In the Streets,” Medeski, Martin, & Wood’s “Bubblehouse,” and “Franklin’s Tower”) featuring multi-instrumentalist Stuart Bogie on sax; and the final encore of “U.S. Blues.” You can read Live For Live Music’s full play-by-play of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s performance at the Ogden Theatre, including pictures and videos, here.
