The String Cheese Incident Performs ‘Hi Ho No Show’ In St. Louis: Pro-Shot Video
Last weekend, The String Cheese Incident headed to St. Louis for a two-night run at the historic Fabulous Fox Theatre as part of the band’s 25th-anniversary tour. Now, the Colorado-based jam act has released a pro-shot video of their rendition of “Hi Ho No Show” from their second set.
Notably, SCI dusted off a number of covers throughout the performance, including those from Traffic, Led Zeppelin and Billy Joe Shaver. Towards the end of the second frame, the band offered up a take on the classic Led Zep tune “Kashmir,” marking the Physical Graffiti track’s first play since July of 2018. The band gracefully segued into the number via “Hi Ho No Show,” which stood out as one of the highlights of the evening.
The bluegrass-infused tune was led in by Michael Kang on violin and on acoustic guitar. Complemented by the rhythm section’s bouncing rhythm, the upbeat and jubilant tune stood in contrast to “I Want You,” the recently released and laidback Sound Lab single that preceded it. However, part way through the number, String Cheese Incident deviated from the expected, using “Hi Ho No Show” to launch into a gritty electronic jam highlighting drummers Jason Hann and Michael Travis as well as a cascading synth solo from Kyle Hollingsworth.
