Joe Russo’s Almost Dead wrapped-up a three-night run at Montclair, NJ’s Wellmont Theatre last night. During the ensemble’s first set, they busted out the rarely played Grateful Dead song “Alice D. Millionaire” for the first time since December 16, 2016.
The Dead played “Alice D. Millionaire”–which is taken from a newspaper headline about Owsley Stanley being arrested–a few times in 1966, before the song was shelved for decades. Phil Lesh & Friends revived the tune in 2002, and the bassist has occasionally played the number in different settings ever since.
JRAD’s fall tour continues at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium on October 22.
