Joe Russo’s Almost Dead have announced that bassist Oteil Burbridge (Dead & Company) will join them for a trio of shows this fall. The Grateful Dead-inspired quintet has a seven-date tour planned, and it sounds like bassist Dave Dreiwitz is unable to make it “due to an unexpected turn of events.”
Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and Oteil Burbridge will kick things off in Philadelphia for back-to-back shows at the Tower Theater on October 18th and 19th. The following night—on October 20th—the group will take over The Anthem in Washington, DC.
The core members of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead will regroup to perform two sets at the Suwannee Hulaween pre-party on October 25th. Then, a few weeks later, Joe Russo, Marco Benevento, Tom Hamilton, Dave Dreiwitz, and Scott Metzger will swing through California for two nights at The Wiltern in Los Angeles on November 8th and 9th and two nights at the Fox Theatre in Oakland on November 10th and 11th.
