Joe Russo’s Almost Dead hosted a three-night run of shows at Brooklyn Bowl, with a few special guests added to the mix. Nights 1 and 2 featured acoustic sets with the stage set up on the bowling lanes, one of which featured an epic 27-minute “Terrapin Suite”. Guitar slayer John Mayer sat in the entire second second set on Night 2, while on Night 3, Chris Harford, Joe Russo’s band mate from Band of Changes, stepped up to cover Neil Young’s “Hippe Dream”.
