VIDEO / SETLIST | JRAD Debuts Original Song "Keeping It Simple" at 100th Show

When Joe Russo's Almost Dead kicked off a six night Brooklyn Bowl residency with their 100th show, did you expect them to phone it in?

Ha! As if that's even possible with this group.  After starting things off with a 100 beat "Beat It On Down The Line", their execellent first set ended with the debut of their first ever Joe Russo's Almost Dead original song, "Keeping It Simple", a Joe Russo / Tom Hamilton composition.  Here's video courtesy of YouTuber TimeZonerTV.

They jammed so hard in the second set, they didn't even have the time for a planned "U.S. Blues" encore.

I feel like I heard “Dear Prudence” (The Beatles) teased a bunch thru the night, maybe for sure in Morning Dew? There was also a "Fly Like An Eagle" (Steve Miller Band) some where in the first set... Let me know what you heard.

And as always, let me know what I missed.

Usual gratitude on our end to all of you that came out & tuned in from your couch. Same goes for the folks at the Bowl - still feeling huge amounts of love from our home-at-home. Couldn't think of a better place to play #100 than the womb that birthed this band to begin with - good ol' show #1 on 2013-01-26 - "One Night Only!" or so we thought at the time.

See you crazy kids tmrw - same RAD time, same RAD channel.
