According to Jambands.com, "Tinder
Box" saw action for the first time since December 30, 2006; while Bill Nershi's "100 Year
Flood" was played after a year and a half on the shelf.
Cover-wise, SCI debuted their version of "One World (Not Three)" by Sting towards the end
of last night's second set. Then, as part of their encore, String Cheese worked a cover of
Daft Punk's 1997 breakthrough single "Around the World" into their own trance jam "Rosie."
The "Around the World" cover saw keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth employ a vocoder-like
device to provide the robotic vocals the song is based around.
