first_imgOn Saturday night, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead closed out their two-night run at Boston’s House Of Blues, marking the group’s final performances of 2017. Characteristic of the innovative Grateful Dead-inspired act, the final Boston show saw the group in proper form, offering up an energized mix of Dead tunes and other choice covers along with countless teases of other artists ranging across Michael Jackson (“Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough”), Herbie Hancock (“Tell Me A Bedtime Story”), Steve Miller (“Fly Like An Eagle”), Rod Stewart (“Do You Think I’m Sexy”), Suzanne Vega (“Tom’s Diner”), John Coltrane (“Love Supreme”), Bobby Brown (“My Prerogative”), and more.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Shares Full Audio Of LOCKN’ Set Featuring Bob Weir [Stream]Obviously a huge night for the band considering its placement as the group’s last shows of the year, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead managed to mix in a number of special songs into the setlist among tunes that more frequently see rotation during performances. After a show-opening cover of Chuck Berry’s “Promised Land”, the group hit a rousing rendition of “Shakedown Street” ahead of a jam built around John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme”. During this first set, the band also performed Jerry Garcia’s “Cats Under The Stars” for the third time ever and allowed Marco Benevento and Dave Dreiwitz to team up for an extended duo section during “Viola Lee’s Blues”.During the second set of the night, the band offered up the majority of its high-profile and sometimes hilarious teases. From the set-opening slinky rendition of “Feel Like A Stranger”, the band worked in tastes of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” and Suzanne Vega’s “Tom Diner” as well as a more traditional “Slipknot!” tease. From there, the band was off and sprinting toward the finish, with the second set also seeing a “flipped” version of “Eyes of the World”—the band started with the song’s ’73 ending played in the key of the song before it, “Dancing In The Streets”—as well as a rendition of “Standing On The Moon”, marking the first time the band has the 1989 Grateful Dead tune since October 2nd, 2015 at Brooklyn Bowl in New York City.“Viola Lee Blues” > “Cats Under The Stars”[Video: Brosef Wilson]“Standing On The Moon” > “Truckin’”[Video: monihampton]“Feel Like A Stranger”[Video: Jamey Klein]“Franklin’s Tower”[Video: Jamey Klein]You can check out the setlist for yourself below, plus stay tuned for announcements about Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s highly anticipated performances in 2018!Setlist: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead | House Of Blues | Boston, MA | 12/9/2017Set One: Promised Land > Shakedown Street @ -> Jam # -> The Other One $ > Viola Lee Blues % > Cats Under The Stars ^, One More Saturday NightSet Two: Feel Like A Stranger & -> Franklin’s Tower > Dancing In The Streets * > Eyes Of The World + -> Jam @@ -> Let It Grow ## > Standing On The Moon $$> Truckin’ -> Music Never Stopped Jam -> Truckin’ Reprise -> Born Cross Eyed JamEncore: GDTRFB %% > WBYGN (Instrumental)@ – Unfinished# – With a “Love Supreme” (John Coltrane) Tease (TH or SM)$ – With a Playin Tease (Band)% – With a Throwin Stones Tease (Band), a China Cat Tease (TH), a DD/MB Duo Jam, with TH on Drums, & a “Shortnin’ Bread” (James Whitcomb Riley) Tease (MB)^ – With a “Walk Like An Egyptian” (The Bangles) tease (MB), a China Cat Tease (SM), a “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough” (Michael Jackson) Tease (SM) & a “St. Thomas” (Sonny Rollins) Tease (SM)& – With an Immigrant Song” (Led Zeppelin) Tease, a “Tom’s Diner” (Suzanne Vega) Tease (SM) and a Slipknot!

Angels’ Mike Trout is day to day after a procedure to address foot pain

first_imgANAHEIM — Mike Trout, who has been bothered by a soreness on the bottom of his right foot for about a month, on Monday got some answers and some treatment.Trout has a neuroma, a condition in which tissue builds up around a nerve and causes pain. He was treated with a cryoblation, in which extreme cold fluid is injected to deaden the tissue in the area.All of that sounds worse than it is. The Angels and Trout both said they expect him to be able to play in a few days.“It feels good,” Trout said. “Just taking today (off). See how it feels tomorrow.” Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter He was the designated hitter on Aug. 17 and he did not play the next day. Trout was then improved enough to play all four games in three days in Texas, including playing 20 innings in center field during a doubleheader with an extra inning game on Aug. 20.He got another day off on Aug. 28, just before a team off day. Trout then continued to play through last week’s series in Oakland, although his foot was packed in ice after Thursday afternoon’s game in Oakland.On Friday night, he started but had to come out of  the game early. He didn’t play on Saturday or Sunday.“I’ve just been playing through it,” Trout said. “It had gotten to a point in Chicago in about the fourth inning where it was just, to a point where I couldn’t play. We got this done today, and hopefully, it makes it feel better.”Related Articles Trout is the heavy favorite to win his third American League MVP award this season, even if he misses time down the stretch. Trout is hitting .291 and he leads the league with 45 homers, a .438 on-base percentage and a .645 slugging percentage.ALSOTommy La Stella has had two days of live batting practice, and he’s continued to do defensive work, but he’s still feeling some discomfort in his right leg, which was fractured in July. La Stella said he’s not sure when he’ll be able to come back. “Hopefully we’re getting closer,” he said. …Cam Bedrosian, who is on the injured list with a right forearm strain, has begun playing catch again. Ausmus said Bedrosian needs to throw off a mound a couple times before he can be activated, but he expects that to happen sometime in the season’s final weeks.UP NEXTAngels (LHP José Suarez, 2-5, 6.45 ERA) vs. Indians (RHP Zach Pleasac, 7-6, 3.98 ERA), Tuesday, 7:07 p.m., Fox Sports West, 830 AM Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros center_img Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Manager Brad Ausmus said Trout could play by the Wednesday, and he said he’d be “shocked” if Trout wasn’t playing by the end of the week.Ausmus said the Angels and Trout have been assured that Trout can do no more damage by playing through it. It’s just a matter of controlling the pain. Once the season is over, Trout might need to have a more significant procedure to correct the issue.“We’ll see,” Trout said. “It doesn’t go away unless you get it taken out. We’ll see where it goes.”Trout said he has no idea what caused this issue, but he’s been feeling it off and on for about a month.“It’s like a nerve thing, so it’s like a shooting pain in my foot, toe area,” he said. “I’ve played through some soreness, but when it gets flared up – once it flares up, it don’t go away. It calms down at night, but once you do baseball activity it flares up again. It’s just tough. I obviously want to be out there. This procedure today, they say it helps it so we’ll see how it goes.” Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
