Suwannee Hulaween :: 10.30.15

The Spirit Of The Suwannee Music Park :: Live Oak, FL

The first full day of the third annual Suwannee Hulaween festival took place on Friday at The Spirit Of The Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. Hosts The String Cheese Incident played two sets and treated fans to the 2015 debut of “Ramble On” (Led Zeppelin) as the lone encore. In the first set, SCI welcomed Todd Sheaffer and Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth to help out on “Sometimes A River,” while the second set mixed material from throughout the band’s career.

Suwannee Hulaween’s biggest audience yet witnessed plenty of other performances over the course of a busy Friday. Papadosio showed off new material. Turbo Suit dressed for the occasion, in, you guessed it – turbo suits and Dopapod played a set of Halloween-themed songs such as “Dracula,” “Bats In The Cave” and “Jack’s Lament (The Nightmare Before Christmas)” while wearing skeleton costumes. Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds delivered a Back To The Future-themed set as all members dressed up as characters from the movie trilogy and welcomed Roosevelt Collier for a sit-in that included “Johnny B. Goode.” Primus and Pretty Lights were among the late-night options with the former’s set ending with the dynamite sequence of “Southbound Pachyderm,” “My Name Is Mud” and “Jerry Is A Racecar Driver.”

The action continues at Hulaween on Saturday with three sets from SCI including a “Ghoul Train” set hosted by GZA of Wu-Tang Clan and performances from Slightly Stoopid, Future Rock, The New Mastersounds and many more. A number of sets will be broadcast via SiriusXM’s Jam On.
