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.

Navi Mumbai: Hardik Pandya continued his destructive form on return from injury as he slammed a 55-ball 158 for Reliance 1 against BPCL in the semi-final of the 16th DY Patil T20 Cup at the DY Patil Stadium here on Friday. Days after smashing 105 off just 39 balls, fit-again Hardik tonked 20 massive sixes and hit six fours in his blitzkrieg which entertained the crowd who had turned up to see the likes of him, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Shreyas Iyer among others. Reliance 1 rode Hardik’s pyrotechnics to reach 238. Hardik underwent surgery after suffering a lower-back injury five months ago and has since been on a road to recovery. He could not be fit in time for the New Zealand tour but started bowling at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru after returning from a check-up in the UK. After smashing 105 against CAG in a Group C encounter a few days ago, he had said: “It’s fantastic (platform) for someone like me. I have been away for almost six months. This is my second game after a long time. For me, it is a good platform to see where I am currently and test my body.

On Oct. 14, Brisly Estime tweeted a staggering 122 times.Some highlights: “my yoga class doe >>,” “is it true chinese food is made out of rats??” and “College is a catfish, how you see college on TV is not how it really is (crying face).”Later in the day, he tweeted “yall can call me bris not my full name…” and “I miss my son so much…him throwin up every where.”Thanks for the lovely image, Bris.In all, from Oct. 5-19, Estime tweeted a whopping 473 times. That’s 31.5 tweets per day, 1.32 per hour and .022 a minute.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThat is absolutely incredible. To think that a man of so few words in person could have that much to say on Twitter is astounding.Right now, Estime is perhaps best known for his Twitter binges, but his arsenal is much wider. He just needs the chance to alter his image and see more time on the field.He only caught two balls for Syracuse (3-4, 1-2 Atlantic Coast) in three games for a grand total of 11 receiving yards. That’s 43 tweets per reception, for those of you at home with scorecards. But that’s not Estime’s fault. He flaunted his electrifying ability to return kicks against Georgia Tech, and he’s arguably one of SU’s most talented receivers.Estime should see more action against Wake Forest (4-4, 2-3), both in the return game and in the H-back slot. His potential is sky high, and targeting him more this week can help the Orange beat the Demon Deacons.Head coach Scott Shafer said at his weekly press conference Thursday that he plans to get Estime more involved “to some degree” this week.“We look to try to get the ball in his hands a little bit more every week,” Shafer said.But a little bit more isn’t good enough.Not with the way the offense has been struggling. Not with Estime’s talent. Not with the speed at which Syracuse’s bowl hopes are diminishing — unlike Estime’s tweeting quota.Two weeks ago, before the Georgia Tech loss, Shafer said he didn’t want Estime to have too many pots on the stove. He planned on featuring Estime exclusively in the H-back position.That Saturday, though, Estime returned two punts. And he looked damn good on the second one. He broke free to the outside and burst by Georgia Tech defenders before being forced out of bounds.The time has come to use him to his full potential, especially against a pressure-heavy Demon Deacon defense.Wake Forest’s main defensive weapon is Nikita Whitlock. Even Shafer loves watching Whitlock play.Whitlock has recorded 52 tackles, 13.5 of them for a loss of 78 yards, and leads the team with seven sacks.Syracuse quarterback Terrel Hunt has struggled mightily with throwing the ball downfield as of late, he said, in part because he needs to trust his receivers and throw the ball where he expects they’ll be, rather than where they are.Estime is the perfect solution. The H-back position was designed for games like this. Estime can operate strictly within a New England Patriots-esque style of offense. Stand to Hunt’s side, and as Whitlock and other pass rushers swarm Hunt, Estime can be right there for a dump pass.Then Estime can do what he does best and what he did so well in the return game against the Yellow Jackets.Run wild.A few shake and bakes, do da dippities and dirty dangles later and Estime can take it to the house.He brings something very few players on the Syracuse roster have shown in the past few weeks: explosiveness.“He’s actually had two good weeks of practice,” Shafer said.So let’s go. Start the engine. Turn that tweeting machine into a reception machine.On Oct. 19, Estime tweeted 31 times. He tweeted a few more gems such as “funa go to sleep” and “this game live right na.”But his 27th tweet of the day might have been the most significant.“waiting on my moment…”That moment should come this week.
