The location makes sense, as Almost Dead is gearing up for a three night run in New York with shows scheduled at both Brooklyn Bowl (12/29) and the Capitol Theatre (12/30-12/31). Russo is also a Brooklyn native, and has played at Three’s Brewing in the past. Almost Dead even went as far as to tease a handful of Benevento Russo Duo songs during a recent performance, only building the anticipation for their return. With the cat now out of the bag, expect Three’s Brewing to be jam-packed with eager fans tonight.The timing of the show also makes sense, as the two musicians have been preparing for the return of The Duo for quite some time now. Both Russo and Benevento have shared footage of rehearsals, only building anticipation for more Duo shows ahead. With the band members already in town for their other commitments, and a big headlining performance scheduled for Jam Cruise in just a few weeks, it’s no surprise that the two will go ahead and get their jam on.For more about the history of The Duo, be sure to read our feature on the band. The show tonight should certainly be something special! Enjoy it. After six years of inactivity, it seems that the Benevento Russo Duo will live again in Brooklyn, NY tonight, for a one-off performance ahead of their scheduled upcoming appearance on Jam Cruise. Pianist Marco Benevento and drummer Joe Russo have not officially performed as a duo since 2010, but the two have collaborated frequently in the ongoing Grateful Dead tribute band, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead.The plan for a secret show tonight was revealed on Instagram, where Benevento posted the following with the location set for Three’s Brewing in Brooklyn, NY.
The Instagram account of Black Stars forward Andre Ayew has been hacked.Ayew, whose account currently has over 425,000 followers was taken over on Tuesday, with his profile picture replaced by a picture of the logo of Turkish side Fenerbache.The name of the profile has also been changed to ‘Andre Ayew MOPAO’, which means ‘Andre Ayew Boss/Master’ while the account’s handle has also been altered.The last post by the account, made after it was hacked, is a picture of the Fenerbache flag with the caption: “Swansea City de çok sıkıldım havası bunalttı. Fenerbahçe’ye dönüyorum”, which translates loosely as “I’m very bored with Swansea. Back to Fenerbahce.”Ayew spent last season on loan at the Turkish club where, despite a less than stellar campaign, he still scored five goals in 35 matches in all competitions.This season Andre has been in fine form for Swansea scoring 6 goals in his last 8 league games and nine in total as Swansea fight for a Championship playoff place.It appears he endeared himself to Fenerbache fans while he was there, and his current form has left some desperate for him to return with the transfer window open.Ayew’s current club, Swansea City announced the hack on Twitter and stated that efforts were being made to resolve the matter.
It’s not hard to see why Senegal are Africa’s highest-ranked side. The Teranga Lions should have reached the last 16 at Russia 2018 and should go much further than that this time. A remorseless defence is marshalled by Kalidou Koulibaly, one of the world’s most in-demand centre-backs; it is bolstered by an experienced midfield and, ahead of that, an attack that can work magic. Mane, their captain, needs no introduction but unlike title rivals Egypt, there’s a depth of other players who can share the goals around.There is no more finely-tuned unit in all of Africa; is this, at last, their year?–Follow all the Senegal’s games with #JoyAFCON.
