Joe Russo’s Almost Dead is currently between their two-weekend residency at the Brooklyn Bowl. As tradition, the band releases soundboard audio from past shows every Tuesday, dubbed Taper Tuesday. This week’s edition surprised fans with soundboard audio from the previous weekend’s concert at the Brooklyn Bowl in New York City.The 3/11/17 show featured the return of “US Blues” during the encore, which hadn’t been played since their second-ever show, 100 performances ago. The band also debuted “Stella Blues Jam” in the second set, before heading into a special “He’s Gone” which featured teases of the Netflix original series Stranger Things. The themes continued during “The Wheel,” which heard the theme song from The Simpsons carefully mixed in. The second set ended with an electric “So Many Roads” and “Sugar Magnolia.” You can read the full show recap here.Thanks to taper Eric McRoberts and the band, you can listen to the full show below:Tomorrow, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead returns to the Brooklyn Bowl for three more nights of music – only this time, Dead & Company bassist Oteil Burbridge will be filling in for Dave Dreiwitz. We can’t help but imagine what this new lineup addition will sound like, and are looking forward to hopefully seeing more from their collaborations at Fool’s Paradise later this month.Check out the full setlist below, as posted by band manager Peter Costello.Setlist: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead | Brooklyn Bowl | 3/11/17Set One (9:29PM – 10:32PM)Don’t Ease Me In (TH)Women Are Smarter (SM) ->China Cat Sunflower (TH) ->Feel Like A Stranger @ (SM)Mississippi Half Step (TH) ->Lost Sailor (SM) ->Saint Of Circumstance # (SM)Set Two (11:03PM- 12:30AM)Greatest Story Ever Told $ (SM) ->Moby Dick % ->Music Never Stopped Reprise Reprise ^ (SM) ->Greatest Story Ever Told Reprise &Candyman (TH) ->Uncle Johns Band (All) ->Stella Blue Jam * ->He’s Gone (TH) + ->The Wheel @@ (ALL) ->St. Stephen Jam ->So Many Roads ## (TH)Sugar Magnolia/SSDD (SM)ENC:Ripple $$ (TH) >US Blues %%@ – With an “Apache” (Jerry Lordan) Tease (MB): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apache_(instrumental)# – With a Terrapin Jam (may become a separate track), Ruben & Cherise Teases (TH) & an “Eleanor Rigby” (The Beatles) Tease (TH)$ – With a Black Throated Wind Jam (may become a separate track)% – Unfinished (no drum solo).
