Grateful Dead tribute act Joe Russo’s Almost Dead recently hit St. Louis where they performed the early 1960s Bonnie Dobson post-apocalyptic lament “Morning Dew.” The song are a staple in the Dead’s live sets and was also included on their 1967 self-titled debut album. As Jambase reported, JRAD has now shared a video of the performance, which also contains elements of the Grateful Dead’s 1977 epic “Terrapin" suite. You can watch the performance below.
Back in November of 2018, JRAD announced perhaps their most extensive tour to date, which kicked off with the band’s annual three-night run in Port Chester, New York in January and will see the group touring throughout the winter, spring, summer and fall of 2019.
The tour includes a two-night run at Mardi Gras World in New Orleans to coincide with the 50th annual The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival April 26 & 27, as well as a show at Marymoor Amphitheater in Redmond, Washington on June 1. The tour wraps up in Washington D.C. on Sept. 28. Click here to browse AXS for tickets to select JRAD shows.
