Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Tackle “The Catalog” at The Ogden and Boulder Theater (PHOTOS)

Joe Russo’s Almost Dead owned the Denver area on 12/15 and 12/16/16 as they triumphed at the Ogden Theatre and then a night later at the Boulder Theater. As can be told by the photos and setlists, The Grateful Dead catalog is in good hands when Russo, Scott Metzger, Tom Hamilton, Marco Benevento and Dave Dreiwitz bring their Dead formula to the stage.
