Almost Dead continues to impress fans with their one-of-a-kind take on the Grateful Dead. While the Brooklyn Bowl show on 12/29 focused more on the Dead’s material, the band took more liberties with the catalog and worked outside the box for a great performance.Featuring special guest performances from Alecia Chakour, the band drilled through Grateful Dead classics, along with a rendition of “The Weight” by The Band, and debut cover of “Hood Doo Voo Doo” by Wilco/Billy Bragg/Woody Guthrie. The band has shared the soundboard audio from this performance, which you can enjoy below:Setlist: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead | The Capitol Theatre | Port Chester, NY | 12/30/16Set 1 (8:45PM – 10:12PM)King Bee Jam + ->The Eleven @ (All) >BIODTL # (SM) >Feel Like A Stranger (SM) >Cumberland Blues $ (All) ->The Stranger (Two Souls In Communion) (AC)Estimated Prophet (SM) ->Space ->Bird Song Jam + ->Day Tripper % (TH) ->Bird Song ^ (TH) ->King Solomon’s Marbles & ->Bird Song Reprise + (TH)Set 2 (10:49PM – 12:??AM)Til The Morning Comes + (All + AC) ->Passenger + (SM & AC) ->Viola Lee Blues * (All) ->Jam ->Uncle John’s Band (All) ->Becky @@ ->Uncle John’s Band Reprise (All) ->Viola Lee Blues Reprise (All) ->Hoo Doo Voo Doo ++ (SM) ->Lovelight * (AC) ->Shakedown Street ## (TH) >Throwing Stones $$ (SM)ENC: The Weight (All + AC)AC is Alecia Chakour (Tedeschi Trucks Band) on Vocals+ – First Time Played by Almost [email protected] – With at Throwin’ Stones Tease (TH)# – 30 Beat BIODTL for Dec 30th$ – With Feel Like A Stranger & Hoedown (Aaron Copeland) Teases (MB) & a Lovelight Jam (Band)% – First Time Played by Almost Dead, Beatles Cover, Unfinished, 2 verses were sung^ – With a Day Tripper (The Beatles) Tease (MB)& – Unfinished* – With Cochemea Gastelum (Dap Kings) on Bari [email protected]@ – Benevento Russo Duo Cover, not played since 2015-10-03, a gap of 46 shows.

Venizelos rejects blame for name list

first_imgSocialist PASOK leader Evangelos Venizelos on Thursday sought to absolve himself of responsibility for the failure of authorities to probe a list of some 2,000 Greek tax evasion suspects, given to authorities two years ago by former French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde, as former minister Yiannis Ragousis quit the party, casting aspersions on Venizelos’s role in the affair.Speaking to Mega TV on Wednesday night, Venizelos defended his actions during his stint as finance minister, saying his efforts had focused on “saving the country” not on “controlling secret information.” Venizelos, who on Tuesday gave authorities a memory stick containing the list of names after Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras admitted the data had gone astray, also hit out at the leftist opposition SYRIZA party after it declared that “the country went to elections while Venizelos kept the data in his drawer.”Venizelos said the affair should be discussed by Parliament’s transparency committee, which on Wednesday heard from former Financial Crimes Squad (SDOE) chief Yiannis Diotis. In his testimony, Diotis claimed to have been given the list of names “informally” by former Finance Minister Giorgos Papaconstantinou, but said the information could not be used as it was not a legitimate document.Earlier in the day, Ragousis quit PASOK, citing inaction over the list which, he said, demonstrated the authorities’ “decisiveness to not strike at tax evasion with the same severity reserved for onslaughts on income and imposing new taxes.” Ragousis said PASOK was “a party where the views and practices of the political establishment set up after the fall of the military dictatorship have prevailed.” His departure came as another ex-PASOK minister, Andreas Loverdos, suggested he would launch his own party soon.
