Benevento/Russo Duo Announce Acoustic Pop-Up Set Livestream

By Scott Bernstein Mar 29, 2021 1:44 pm PDT

Keyboardist Marco Benevento and drummer Joe Russo will team up shortly for a Benevento/Russo Duo “acoustic pop-up set.” The 20-minute performance airs on Relix Magazine’s Twitch channel today at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT.

While Marco and Joe have shared the stage many times since 2013 as members of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Benevento/Russo Duo performances have been few and far between over the past 11 years. The pair last played a duo set at the 2017 Suwannee Hulaween festival, just their fourth performance as a two-piece since 2010.

Last summer the Benevento/Russo Duo re-issued their mid-2000s studio albums on Bandcamp via Royal Potato Family. Digital and vinyl copies of 2005’s Best Reason To Buy The Sun and 2006’s Play Pause Stop are still available for purchase through Bandcamp.
