Phil Lesh & Friends

A New Year's Celebration with PhilRAD featuring Phil Lesh & Joe Russo's Almost Dead on December 29, December 30 and December 31

We're bidding goodnight to 2014 with three nights of Phil Lesh and Joe Russo's Almost Dead at The Capitol Theatre! Founding Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh will join Joe Russo's Almost Dead to become a new incarnation, known for the first time as PhilRAD. This momentous occasion will celebrate Phil Lesh's first time performing New Year's Eve on the East Coast since Grateful Dead's Boston Tea Party show in 1969.

Learning from the source, Joe Russo, who has performed since 2009 with Futhur and Phil Lesh & Friends, has discovered and captured the essence of Grateful Dead's music and spirit. Joe Russo's Almost Dead has been impressing live audiences around the country performing the Grateful Dead’s songbook, and on December 29, December 30 and December 31, Joe, along with guitarists Scott Metzger and Tommy Hamilton, and keyboardist Marco Benevento will join Phil Lesh ​to become PhilRAD.

Join us for three magical evenings of live music and toast to new beginnings at The Cap. We can't think of a better way to ring in 2015! ​

American Jubilee

A collection of young, professional musicians, American Jubilee cut their teeth moonlighting as the 'Terrapin Family Band' at Phil Lesh's Terrapin Crossroads. They perform a mix of rearranged traditional Americana music and originals that draw inspiration from that same vein. Students of music history, American Jubilee tries to walk the same path that was first blazed by the likes of Levon Helm and Gram Parsons, and more recently has been furthered by musicians such as Ryan Adams or the Avett Brothers. While cemented by the core of Brian Lesh, Ross James, Scott Padden, Craig MacArthur & Alex Koford. American Jubilee often draws from the strong and growing population of young Bay Area musicians such as Grahame Lesh, Elliott Peck and Tommy Odetto, as well as more established talent such as Mark Karan and Jon Graboff, to create a communal, family style of music that is hard to find elsewhere.



This event will have a general admission standing room only floor and a reserved seated Loge and Balcony. Reserved Loge and Balcony tickets will NOT have access to the general admission floor.
