Joe Russo’s Almost Dead helped celebrate the 15th annual Freaks Ball with a two-night run at Brooklyn Bowl. The super-group featuring Joe Russo, Marco Benevento, Dave Dreiwitz, Scott Metzger, and Tom Hamilton had Deadheads in high spirits with classics like ‘Black Peter’, ‘Aiko Aiko’, and ‘Cumberland Blues’.
