The String Cheese Incident ended a five-year-old tradition of performing New Year’s Runs in their home state of Colorado in 2017 by bringing the band’s latest NYE run to The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. Cheese has just posted upgraded footage of the way they rang in 2018.
Unlike many bands, SCI jams into the new year. This time around they used “Rivertrance” as the song in which they would end 2017 and start 2018. At one point, a video was displayed above the band showing a woman dressed as an angel. Then, the “angel” emerged on stage and was hoisted up via wires. Eventually, the video displayed a countdown that led into the new year while Cheese was jamming away.
Watch how it went down via the band’s official YouTube channel:
