Almost exactly a year after their first-ever collaboration, Joe Russo, Marco Benevento, Tom Hamilton, Dave Dreiwitz, and Scott Metzger welcomed the Dead & Company guitarist and vocalist to close the first set with an 18+ minute “Althea.” Appropriately, fans were giddy in shock and awe as the guitarists traded licks and smiles, but interestingly not vocals.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Busts Out Rare Radiohead Cover During A Wild Night 4 At Brooklyn BowlJohn Mayer returned to the stage for a scorching second set, joining the band in true jam fashion that eventually segued into “Here Comes Sunshine” and “New Minglewood Blues.” Watching the guest guitarist perform alongside the Grateful Dead reinventors brought true joy to those in attendance—as the band before the audience’s eyes is, by definition, a direct result of the music-loving souls in that very room. The Fall Ball is the Autumnal cousin of the annual Freak’s Ball, organized by the famous Freaks List of New York. The Almost Dead originally formed as a one-off band for the 2013 edition of the long-running Freaks Ball, and the band holds a special relationship with the group of fans who helped mold them. It’s only appropriate that the band still successfully exists, selling out show after show, welcoming an impressive roster of Grateful Dead, and company, members along the way—and that we get to celebrate the fact together at this semi-annual shindig.The second set continued in high gear, with the rebirth of “Lazy Lightning,” which had not been played by the Almost Dead since Valentines Day of 2016 at Higher Ground, Winooski, VT. The quintet also debuted their version of “China Doll,” with teases of Led Zeppelin‘s “No Quarter” and Pink Floyd‘s “Run Like Hell.” The second set closed with an enormous “I Know You Rider,” before the band and their special guest returned for another satisfying encore. After a beautiful piano solo from Marco, the band and Mayer delivered a soul-stirring version of Dr. John‘s “Such A Night” before closing Friday night with a huge “Franklin’s Tower.” While John Mayer’s sit-in was certainly appreciated, JRAD fans agree that the core five are best influenced by their own synergy. Part of what makes the band so special is their intention to launch songs with surprise twists and turns, and their ability to do that is severely limited by an “other” on the stage. Despite that fact, we’ll welcome John Mayer’s May-RAD any time—or at the very least, once a year.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead returns to the stage tonight for their sixth and final sold-out night of Fall Ball at the Brooklyn Bowl.Watch “Althea” below, courtesy of TimeZonerTV:Thanks to Moni Hampton, you can watch “Here Comes Sunshine” and “Franklin’s Tower” below:last_img read more

Broward Man Arrested When Laser Pointer Beam Targets Sheriff’s Helicopter

first_imgA Broward County man received a visit he apparently did not expect this week, when he aimed his laser pointer beam at law enforcement officials flying above.According to an arrest report, 35-year-old Lauderdale Lakes resident Stephen Ramoo wanted to test how far his new $60 laser would travel last Tuesday from the top floor of an apartment building in the 4200 block of Northwest 41st Street. However, investigators say he went too far when he targeted a Broward Sheriff’s Office helicopter in the sky near him.The helicopter was assisting sheriff’s deputies who were checking on a silent alarm at Park Lakes Elementary School.The crew alerted deputies on the ground when they saw the green beam aimed at their chopper. They also recorded the man and directed the deputies to his location.Ramoo admitted to pointing the laser and said that he threw the device from the fourth floor and went inside as deputies arrived. He added that the laser pointer may have ended up in a large tree.He was arrested and charged with a third-degree felony of pointing a laser device at someone operating a motor vehicle, boat or aircraft, and was later released from the Broward County Jail on a $1,000 bond.last_img read more
