Skrillex Sits-In With The String Cheese Incident At Electric Forest

The String Cheese Incident played their first of three headlining performances at the 2015 Electric Forest festival last night in Rothbury, Michigan. The band brought out EDM producer Skrillex to play guitar during the band’s encore featuring covers of The Doors’ “Break On Through” and “L.A.Woman.”

The String Cheese Incident also brought out The Preservation Hall Jazz Band horn section to close out their first set. The horns joined in on the last four songs for the set, “Sugar”, “Hollywood Swingin’,” and “Miss Brown’s Teahouse” > “Uptown Funk.” SCI remained guest-free for set two which included covers of The Allman Brothers Band’s “Jessica” which segued into Talking Heads’ “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody).” Skrillex (aka Sonny Moore) emerged donning an electric guitar as the band began their encore. He proceeded to then lead SCI through The Doors’ “Break On Through” and “L.A. Woman” before returning to “Break On Through.”
