The Benevento-Russo Duo To Play Freaks Ball XVII


Each year, members of taste making New York City e-mail list the Freaks List throw a party/concert known as “Freaks Ball.” The annual event gave birth to Joe Russo’s Almost Dead in 2013 and now will host just the third Benevento-Russo Duo performance since 2010.

Freaks Ball XVII will feature both The Duo and WOLF! featuring Scott Metzger on February 25 at Brooklyn Bowl in New York City. Russo, Benevento and Metzger are staples of Freaks Ball past. Joe and Marco returned to the stage in December for a warmup show in Brooklyn ahead of their official return aboard Jam Cruise earlier this year. Now, the pair will play a venue that didn’t exist during the hey day of The Duo, yet has been a regular stop for each of their projects.

Tickets for Freaks Ball XVII go on sale Monday, February 6 at 12 p.m. Watch Joe and Marco end their Jam Cruise 15 set with “Becky” as captured by Adriennenne:
