Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Work In Radiohead And Bob Dylan Jams In Charleston [Full Audio]

first_imgLast night, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead made their way to The Music Farm in Charleston, SC. The live Dead force comprised of Joe Russo (drums), Scott Metzger (guitar/vocals), Tom Hamilton (guitar/vocals), Marco Benevento (keys) and Dave Dreiwitz (bass) delivered a stellar show to the sellout crowd.The first set was a non-stop series of seamless segues and improvisations, including an extended take on “Viola Lee Blues” (featuring teases of U2‘s “I Will Follow”), a “Shakedown Street” that wove into a “Dancing In The Streets” jam, an incredible “Mr. Charlie” -> “Candyman” segue, a far-out “Uncle John’s Band”, and a multi-part “The Wheel” segment containing a jam on Radiohead‘s “National Anthem” and the band’s first-ever stand-alone “Terrapin Flyer”, which was left out of their “Terrapin Suite” the night before in Nashville.Set two featured top-notch renditions of “Estimated Prophet”, “Saint of Circumstance”, and “Greatest Story Ever Told”. Finally, the band encored with Bob Dylan‘s “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You” -> “Not Fade Away”, which flowed into an “Iko Iko” jam before finishing strong with a “Not Fade Away” reprise.You can listen to full audio of the performance below, uploaded by user chrisdavis:Setlist: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead | The Music Farm | Charleston, SC | 1/13/17Set One: Golden Road To Unlimited Devotion (TH) -> Viola Lee Blues @ (All) -> Shakedown Street (TH) -> Dancin In The Streets Jam # -> Mr Charlie $ (SM) -> Jam -> Candyman (TH) -> Uncle John’s Band % (All) -> The Wheel Jam -> National Anthem Jam ^ -> The Wheel (All) -> Terrapin Flyer & -> The Wheel Reprise (All)Set Two: Loser (TH) -> Estimated Prophet (SM) -> Other One Jam * -> Mississippi Half Step (TH) -> Lost Sailor (SM) -> Saint Of Circumstance (SM), Row Jimmy (TH) -> Greatest Story (SM)Encore: Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You @@ (TH) > Not Fade Away ## (All) -> Iko Iko Jam $$ -> Not Fade Away Reprise %% (All)@ – With an “I Will Follow” (U2) tease (TH)# – First/Second time played.

Class project raises more than $40,000 for World Bicycle Relief

first_img Read Full Story When Myra White issued a charity challenge to the 13 student teams in her Managing Virtual Teams spring course, asking them to raise money for World Bicycle Relief (WBR), she never expected them to raise $40,000 in less than two months.Each semester, groups of five or six students compete in a series of challenges, with the final challenge of raising money and awareness for a charity. This year’s chosen charity, WBR, empowers individuals, families, and communities in remote areas of Africa by providing them with bicycles. With such transportation, children no longer have to walk hours to school, and communities can access medical supplies with greater efficiency.Outlining a clear fundraising strategy through the Get Involved page on WBR’s website, the students enlisted corporate matching and grants from their employers, created Facebook pages, and used Twitter to raise funds. The funds from a virtual race alone, which allowed participants to find sponsors for a 5K at a location of their own choosing, raised $7,000 – enough for WBR to buy 52 bicycles. The students’ efforts raised WBR to new donation records, raising funds from individuals on six continents; only Antarctica was missing.Even though the semester has ended, the students are still raising money for WBR – a phenomenon that White says often happens. “Students find that helping others enriches themselves as well as the people they help,” White said. “It shows them that they can have a positive impact on the world.”last_img read more
