Last night The String Cheese Incident pulled into Atlanta to play the first of two at the Chastain Park Amphitheatre. The jamband stalwarts battled the elements as heavy thunderstorms came through the area during their opening set, while also offering up tribute to Gregg Allman on a steamy night in ‘Hotlanta.’
The Colorado-based jam-grass act began the night with “So Far From Home,” which was followed by the pairing of “Lost” > “Walls Of Time.” “Road Home,” a cover of Old & In The Way’s “Midnight Moonlight” and a 15-minute-plus “Blue Bossa” followed. SCI next dusted off their cover of the “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More.” It was the band’s third take on the Allman Brothers Band classic, which they debuted all the way back in 2002, and was last played at The Peach Music Festival last summer. Shortly after their tribute to Gregg Allman a rainbow emerged over the venue as the heavy rain that plagued most of the set had subsided. The six-piece act closed out their first stanza with “Give Me The Love” > “Colliding.”
For their second of four scheduled sets in Atlanta, String Cheese offered up a segue-filled affair, which got under way with the trifecta of “Just One Story” > “My One And Only,” from their most recent studio release Believe and old-school favorite “Galactic.” The band next worked their way through “Sing A New Song” > “Sirens” > “Hi Ho No Show” > “Just One Story (Reprise)” to closed things out.
String Cheese Incident returned to the stage for the double-encore of “Falling Through The Cracks,” and a take on Johnny Cash’s “Ring Of Fire.”
