Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Pull Out Rarities, Debut Motörhead Cover For Capitol Theatre Opener [Videos]

first_imgJoe Russo’s Almost Dead were back at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York on Friday evening for the first of three shows at the historic venue this weekend. The sold-out show marked their return to the stage with the six-piece band’s first performance of 2019. The fellas in the Grateful Dead-inspired cover band wasted no time in launching fans back into the vibrant world of the Dead’s powerful live catalogue with two sets (and a special guest encore) to mark the start of their new year and what should be another thrilling weekend run at “The Cap.”Rather than use the initial moments of their 60-minute first set to noodle around on some opening jam, Joe Russo and the boys immediately pounded their way into the opening notes of Jesse Fuller‘s “Beat It On Down the Line” with guitarist Scott Metzger singing the audience into a dancing frenzy with the classic blues-rock tune. Set one would be filled with Dead favorites as the band continued right into the classic combination of “Scarlet Begonias” into “Fire on the Mountain”, with Tom Hamilton taking vocal duties, as well as some impressive solos courtesy of his own auto-wah guitar sound throughout the two jam-friendly songs. Metzger tamed all the energy down just slightly in exchange for a more relaxed cowboy tune with a cover of “Black-Throated Wind” out of the Bob Weir solo songbook. The place didn’t stay relaxed very long, as Hamilton then cranked the energy back up with a thrilling, jam-filled rendition of “Bertha”, followed by “Lazy Lightning” to close out the first half of the show.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead – Set One Opening – 1/18/2019[Video: Relix]The band returned to the stage to start set two with the softer melodies of “Friend of the Devil”, with pianist Marco Benevento providing some lovely solo moments while Hamilton led the audience in a venue sing-along throughout the chorus of the 1970 country ballad. The second-half opener was enjoyed by everyone in the sold-out venue, but fans were ready to dance into the weekend after a surprisingly short first set, and the band made sure to oblige. They continued with “The Wheel”, which included a fun tease of The Beatles‘ “Dear Prudence”. The night continued with a rare cover of “Mason’s Children”, a Dead tune originally written and recorded for 1970’s Workingman’s Dead, but never made it onto the classic album. Metzger then took the building momentum right into a groovy rendition of “I Need A Miracle”, with the entire audience singing along with its anthemic chorus. The performance of the Weir solo tune really showcased the wonderful interplay between Hamilton and Metzger, in addition to featuring a very subtle tease of “Estimated Prophet” at the beginning. It was then bassist Dave Dreiwitz‘s turn to take a rare lead on the mic to belt out the high-energy lyrics of Motörhead‘s “Fast and Loose”. The venue was sent into a frenzy as the often quiet bassist helped power the song right into the eye of a psychedelic storm as the band transitioned into “The Other One” to close the night off with a bang.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead – Set Two Opening – 1/18/2019[Video: Relix]Following a brief break, the band returned to the stage with singer/guitarist Tyrone Cotton, whose band had been the opening act at Garcia’s prior to the show. Cotton’s addition to the encore shouldn’t be too surprising for anyone who caught his band rocking out before the show. Even a semi-disguised Joe Russo was spotted enjoying some of the pre-show festivities amongst the audience in the smaller bar/stage area attached to The Cap. Cotton brought out his acoustic guitar and took up lead vocal duties to help take the audience home with a wonderful cover of “Peggy-O”. After all the craziness that ensued throughout the second set, the night came to a romantic end with Hamilton leading the audience through another sing-along with a cover of “Ripple”.The band will look to pick up where they left off on Friday with the second of three scheduled shows at The Cap on Saturday evening. Saturday and Sunday night’s shows are of course sold out, but fans can still tune into the show via the live webcasts.Setlist: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead | The Capitol Theatre | Port Chester, NY | 1/18/2019Set One: Beat It On Down the Line (Jesse Fuller cover) > Scarlet Begonias (Grateful Dead cover) > Fire on the Mountain (Grateful Dead cover) > Black-Throated Wind (Bob Weir cover) > Bertha (Grateful Dead cover), Lazy Lightning (Kingfish cover)Set Two: Friend of the Devil (Grateful Dead cover) > The Wheel* (Jerry Garcia cover), Mason’s Children (Grateful Dead cover) > I Need a Miracle^ (Grateful Dead cover) > Fast and Loose (Motörhead cover) > The Other One (Grateful Dead cover)Encore: Peggy-O** (traditional cover), Ripple** (Grateful Dead cover)* “Dear Prudence” tease** w/ Tyrone Cotton^ “Estimated Prophet” teaselast_img read more

How the Dodgers fixed their hitting with runners in scoring position

first_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies FULL HOUSEThe Dodgers activated right-hander J.T. Chargois from the DL on Monday, giving them 40 players on their active roster. Chargois has been out since leaving the Dodgers’ Aug. 20 game against the St. Louis Cardinals with neck discomfort.Chargois has made 38 appearances for the Dodgers this season, going 2-4 with a 3.45 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 31-1/3 innings. But Roberts made it clear Chargois won’t be competing for a spot on a potential postseason roster in this season’s final week.“It’s good for him to get back healthy, to finish the season healthy and not be on the disabled list,” Roberts said. “If an opportunity presents itself to get him in there, we’ll obviously do that. But with six games left, we’ve got to go with guys that I know have done it recently.“If there is an opportunity, that’d be great. But I’m just proud of him to get back healthy.”BUEHLER’S DAYRookie right-hander Walker Buehler will make his 22nd start of the season Tuesday night against the Diamondbacks. The 24-year-old has been outstanding over his past 10 starts. He has a 1.58 ERA in that stretch, allowing more than two runs only once and holding opposing hitters to a .163 average and .489 OPS.“I think one part of it is he’s more comfortable,” Roberts said. “I think (it’s about) being here most of the year, getting in a routine and not going up and down, not being in the ’pen, learning hitters, having the rapport with his teammates. And as far as the stuff, I think, like many pitchers, when his fastball command is on, he’s pretty much unhittable. A lot of this year, that’s what we’ve had. And now, the curveball, the slider, the changeup off of it have been lethal.“So there’s two variables – comfort level and consistency and then pitch execution.”ALSOCatcher Yasmani Grandal and shortstop Manny Machado have been named finalists for Silver Slugger awards at their positions. The award is given to the best offensive player at each position. Coaches and managers vote for the winners. They will be announced Nov. 8 on MLB Network.UP NEXTDodgers (RHP Walker Buehler, 7-5, 2.74 ERA) at Diamondbacks (RHP Matt Koch, 5-5, 4.26 ERA), Tuesday, 6:40 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), ESPNRelated Articles PHOENIX — The Dodgers’ September surge has featured a lot of problem-solving.Once vulnerable to opposing left-handers, the Dodgers went into Monday’s game against Diamondbacks left-hander Robbie Ray having won 12 of their previous 17 games started by an opposing lefty.And they seem to have put their struggles in clutch situations behind them.“It’s been talked about a lot with our guys, our hitting guys, the players themselves,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “It’s understanding when you have stark facts about how you are as a collective group and what you need to work on and what you need to do to solve that problem. To their credit, they’ve understood it. They’ve received the information and they’ve adjusted.” Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Over their first 46 games following the All-Star break, the Dodgers hit just .234 (88 for 376) with runners in scoring position.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter.

The Dodgers have hit .315 (39 for 124) with runners in scoring position. Not coincidentally, they won 10 of those 14 games, averaging 6.5 runs per game.“I think it was just more of just staying in the strike zone,” Roberts said of the difference. “I don’t know specifically but my recall is we are taking walks in that position to keep presenting those opportunities. We are swinging at more strikes.“It’s a small kind of recency but our guys are doing a better job of not trying to do too much with runners in scoring position.”The trend took awhile to kick in Monday. The Dodgers were 1 for 7 with runners in scoring position in the first three innings against Ray before breaking out late and going 3 for 9 with runners in scoring position against Diamondbacks relievers.
