Week one of Fall Ball 2017 with Joe Russo’s Almost Dead has come and gone but the satiating music magic is still running through our veins. Something special happens when Joe, Marco, Scott, Tom, and Dave hit the stage at Brooklyn Bowl New York, and the entire community of freaks and beyond feed off of that energy. Whether you enjoyed the show live or streamed with close friends, there is a strong sense of musical kinship that connects us with this band. Tom Petty’s Runnin’ Down a Dream made it into the set list on the first night of week one at Fall Ball 2017, along with explorative jams, solos, and sing-alongs from the Dead songbook we know and love. We’re beyond excited for the continuation of #RADtober/#Rocktober with Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, but for now, let’s rejoice in the memories from the music shared last weekend…
