Pro-Shot Video & Setlist: The String Cheese Incident Rings In 2018 At The Capitol Theatre


The String Cheese Incident rang in 2018 with a concert Sunday night at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. In typical SCI NYE fashion, the group put on an impressive audio and visual display throughout the celebratory performance.

The String Cheese Incident opened the first of three sets on Sunday evening with “Can’t Wait Another Day.” An extensive “Joyful Sound” came later in the opening portion of the show with “BollyMunster” coming in as the set one closer.

The middle set began with “Close Your Eyes,” followed by “Until The Music’s Over” and “Falling Through The Cracks.” A trio of longtime favorites, “Restless Wind” > “It Is What It Is” > Texas,” were sequenced together with each providing large doses of improvisation as the band laid out the rest of set two.


Set three kicked off with Bill Nershi addressing the audience and introducing a new song “Magical Bubbles” as the end of 2017 approached. The debut was followed by “Rivertrance” that incorporated a video of a dancing woman projected on a screen behind the band as large origami-like birds similar to those surrounding the woman were flown above the audience at The Cap. The woman from the video later emerged wearing wings and was hoisted above the stage as the final moments of 2017 were counted down and the band played a “Heavenly Brad Jam,” dedicated to recently-deceased fan Brad Carmel. The Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again” kept the action in 2018 going, with “Jellyfish,” “Tinder Box,” “One Step Closer” and “Rosie” filling out the final set of the run. “Won’t Get Fooled Again” had only been previously covered by SCI twice, with each taking place in 2004.

Not done yet, SCI came back out for a “group hoot” for a longtime crew member working a final show and then offered lengthy performances of “Rollover” and “Valley Of The Jig.” Watch below pro-shot video highlights provided by
