Oteil Burbridge filled in for Dave Dreiwitz on bass for the first of three JRAD shows while Dave is in Chicago with Ween.
It's a nice fit.
Longtime collaborator Stuart Bogie also joined on tenor and baritone sax, flute and percussion for various parts of the show.
Almost Dead continues to move beyond The Dead, covering Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks' "Cinnamon & Lesbians" (which contains a St. Stephen jam), Lorde's "Royals", and a "Born To Run" encore.
The show was streame on nugs.tv, as will Friday and Saturday's shows. They have shared pro-shot videos of the beginning of each set.
Here's the Peter Costello "Box Score" Style setlist, followed by two side-stage fan videos by videographer extraordinnaire LazyLightning55a.
