SCI Crushes Each Night of their 4 Night Halloween Run in the North East

Photos and review by Lori Sky Twohy

Just when you think a few small-venue shows can’t possibly beet out what went down at this years Hulaween Festival in Florida, The String Cheese Incident surprises us yet again with four nights in a row of pure fire.

If anything, the band brought that festival energy with them and blew the roof off of the tiny little buildings known as the Philadelphia Fillmore and The Worcester Palladium respectively and JBO was there (camera in hand) for all of the fun.

As you can see from the setlist, those of us who went to every show of the four night run, were treated to a no-repeat Cheese experience, with incredible covers thrown in by bands and artists such as The Stones (Sympathy for the Devil), The Dead (I Know You Rider), Stevie Wonder (Boogie On Reggae Woman), The Talking Heads (Nothing But Flowers), The Who (Eminence Front), and Bob Marley (Could You Be Loved).

But I digress…

The String Cheese Incident is the only band in the jam scene, it seems that can give its fans the best of both worlds; a huge headlining festival experience with an amazing visual performance like they do multiple nights every year at Electric Forest and Hulaween and then turn around and have the same energy and show quality at small intimate venues such as these. I often wonder how they do it, but it really doesn’t matter as long as they keep it up.

We highly recommend you go to LiveCheese.com and listen to these shows for yourself and we even more recommend you check out their New Years run coming up in Colorado, which also happens to be their 25th anniversary shows followed by their next international incident in Jamaica. Get all your tickets here for the above at StringCheeseIncident.com.
