UPDATE 3/25 1:15 p.m. PT: The band has clarified a few things with a new Facebook post. The first is that JRAD will not play a show on
April 14 and the second is that "most things are west of NYC." We await further word on
what the group has planned.
It looks like the West Coast will get its first Joe Russo's Almost Dead
later this year. A pair of cryptic messages on the band's Facebook page
hint that JRAD has an announcement in store. The first reads "~J4®14?14D~" while the
contains a video link for Pet Shop Boys's "Go West."

If you're unfamiliar with the premise behind Joe Russo's Almost Dead, Furthur drummer Joe
Russo plays Grateful Dead
covers accompanied by his Bustle In Your Hedgerow band mates Scott Metzger, Dave Dreiwitz
and Marco Benevento, along with Tommy Hamilton of American Babies/Brothers Past. The first
message seems to indicate the quintet will perform on 4/14/14, though Russo is scheduled to perform with Phil Lesh at the Brooklyn Academy
Of Music that night. Perhaps a late night at Brooklyn Bowl is in the cards in addition to
the West Coast show? (Update - Not happening)
All will be revealed soon enough, we're just glad JRAD is a going concern. If you missed
it, the band will play Gathering Of The Vibes this summer.
While we wait to see what JRAD has in store, enjoy a soundboard matrix recording of the
band's second-ever show (December 27 at The Capitol Theatre) as well as some of LazyLightning's
