Silver Wrapper presents two very special evenings with Joe Russo's Almost Dead on Friday & Saturday, September 19-20, 2014 at Concord Music Hall. Not only does this super-group quintet play tight and vicious versions of some of the most complex songs in the Grateful Dead repertoire, but they play them with a rawness & energy absent from the stage since the "Live" Dead era. More importantly, all of the jams are wild and incredibly adventurous. Joe Russo is a beast behind the kit who's in the peak of his career. Scott Metzger is a criminally underrated guitarist who has a chameleon-like ability to alter his sound to compliment any situation. The intensity of Dave Dreiwitz is unmatched by anyone, while Marco Benevento spouts these crazy tones and layers of sound that mix the best of what each keyboardist in GD history brought to the band. Finally, add Tommy Hamilton, whose voice and biting leads help push this ensemble over the top.
Don't believe us? Check out this recording from their Capital Theater gig last December.
Doors @ 8:00 pm. Show @ 9:00 pm. Ages 17+.
