Joe Russo’s Almost Dead wrapped up their three-night run at the Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday night, delivering yet another stand-out evening of Grateful Dead music that was nowhere near short of surprises. With multiple debut covers, endless teases, and sublime jamming, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead once again proved why they’re more than just a “cover band”.Right off the bat, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead opened the first set with a debut cover of The Rolling Stones‘ “The Last Time”, with Scott Metzger on vocals. The jam led straight into an appropriate “Shakedown Street”, which featured teases of Radiohead‘s “Myxomatosis” and was left unfinished. Immediately from there, the Radiohead teases continued on “The Other One”, which also teased “Estimated Prophet”. As the band’s manager Peter Costello notes in the Box Score, this show had “a lot of ins and outs”, as the Grateful Dead-inspired quintet muscled their chops through to the finish line. Watch the first set opener below, courtesy of nugs.tv.[Video: Nugs.tv]The seamless jams continued from “The Other One” to “Mission in the Rain”, which had not been played by JRAD since the band’s 3/17/17 show at the same venue, a 41 show gap. “Crazy Fingers” came next with a stand-out jam between keyboardist Marco Benevento and guitarist Tom Hamilton. The band utilized the notes of a quick “Last Time” instrumental jam to bridge the gap between “Crazy Fingers” and “Truckin’”, before closing the first set with a short instrumental jam of “The Other One”, a trick not utilized by JRAD since their 3/11/17 show at the same venue, a 43 show gap.After their break, the second set opened with a “Scarlet Begonias”-esque jam, which led into a short instrumental version of “Slipknot!”, before locking into the debut performance of “Foolish Heart”, sung by Tom Hamilton. “I Need A Miracle” came next, with unfamiliar teases coming from Hamilton, as well as a jam through WOLF‘s “Fastso’s Last Stand”. Watch the second set opener below.[Video: Nugs.tv]An energetic “Franklin’s Tower” followed, with full-band teases of “Foolish Heart” and “Throwing Stones”. Eventually, the song shifted into a full version of “Throwing Stones”, which thematically teased back “Franklin’s Tower” and “Foolish Heart”. The debut of Led Zeppelin‘s “Good Times Bad Times” came next as a full instrumental, before segueing back into “Throwing Stones”. Another debut followed, with a partial version of The Band‘s “Chest Fever”, as sung by drummer Joe Russo with some help from Tom Hamilton. Naturally, the second set concluded with a “Throwing Stones” reprise.The evening came to a definitive end with a reliable “One More Saturday Night” to close Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s three-night run at the Brooklyn Bowl. Next up, the band heads to Syracuse’s Landmark Theatre and Portland’s State Theatre.

There is something special about winning the Masters.It’s an accomplishment many golfers aspire to achieve. Factor in the pageantry of the green jacket and the setting at Augusta National Golf Club, and it’s hard to top. The green jacket recipients at Augusta form an exclusive club, with many of golf’s all-time greats adorning the list of winners since the tournament’s inception in 1934. Below is a list of Masters winners from each year, as well as how much money the winner gets and the history behind the illustrious green jacket.MORE: 2019 Masters field by the numbersMasters winners by yearThe list of Masters winners is filled with golf’s best of all time. Jack Nicklaus holds the record for most Masters victories with six. Tiger Woods will have a chance for his fifth victory at Augusta this year. He is currently tied with Arnold Palmer with four wins. Woods, Nicklaus and Nick Faldo are the only golfers to win consecutive Masters, so Patrick Reed will join rare company if he can accomplish the feat this year.The tournament record of 18-under par is held by Woods, who set it in 1997, and Jordan Spieth, who tied it with his 2015 victory. Woods’ win also set the record for largest margin of victory at 12 strokes.

Patrick Reed made $1,980,000 as last year’s champion, and it’s not a surprise that with the purse increasing, so does the prize for first place. The winner’s share first increased to over $1 million when Tiger Woods won the 2001 Masters. For the first nine years of the tournament, the champion took home only $1,500.The Masters champ will get more money than the winner of any major last year. The $2 million prize for winning the U.S. Open was the highest in 2018. MORE: List of payouts from the 2019 MastersHistory of the Green JacketThe green jacket — given to the Masters winner — is an iconic and unique symbol of the tournament. It is awarded to the victor directly after the tournament, with the previous champion on hand for a passing of the torch. The green jacket made its debut in 1949, 15 years after the first tournament, when it was won by Sam Snead. Its origin stems back to 1937, when members of Augusta National Golf Club would wear green jackets during the tournament as a way to identify themselves and be able to answer questions from spectators. When Nicklaus won his second consecutive Masters, he simply put the jacket on himself, and Faldo and Woods received help from the chairman at the time when they repeated. Nobody is allowed to wear the green jacket except Augusta National members and tournament winners. The champion can take it off club grounds but must return it the next year.(Info via Augusta National)
