The band shared the following about this week’s selection:
This week on Friday Night Cheese, we go back 20 years to the summer of 2000 for a July 4th Incident at the historic Paolo Soleri Amphitheater in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The 2000 Independence Weekend “run” started at Red Rocks, and moved down to Town Park in Telluride for two nights before closing out at Paolo Soleri. Hosted by longtime friends and associates Norm & Sandy Ruth (of Deluxe Design) plus artist Michael Everett, this Incident really stands out in a summer of amazing shows.
Paolo Soleri was the site of our 2000 and 2003 Independence Day Incidents. Those who had a chance to experience the intimacy of this historic venue will tell you that it was one of the best outdoor venues we’ve had the privilege to play. Like Red Rocks, all the seats are above stage level, and the design of the amphitheater kept the crowd energy close.
We want to give a big shoutout to Norm Ruth for sending us the incredible stage camera video, and former SCI Archivist Brooks Elliott for spending the night shooting from the top of the amphitheater next to the soundboard. Our good friend Jason Esparza did the final 2-camera mix and video mastering for this broadcast. We think you’ll agree that this is one of the finest videos we have from that era.
