The Duo as Trio, The Pair’s L.A. Two-fer
Last night in Boulder the Benevento/Russo Duo kicked off their fall tour at the Fox Theater. Tom Hamilton (American Babies) opened the night with a solo acoustic performance and later joined the Duo for three new (and as yet untitled) songs during their set. This evening The Duo will deliver two gigs in L.A. Joe and Marco will appear at the ‘Fridays off the 405’ event at the Getty Center (starting at 6PM) and then perform a 11PM set at the Mint, which is billed as ‘Martini’s, Makers and Moonshine’ with the Benevento/Russo Duo and Friends.
In other news, the Duo recently launched their own download portal with three relatively rare recordings. Benevento and Russo are offering FLAC and mp3 versions of their 7/16/06 performance from 2006 at the Ryman Auditorium, along with the first night of 2006 Jam in the Dam (3/19/06) and ‘Raw Horse’ which was recorded in Boulder in May of 2005 and only previously available in Japan.
