The String Cheese Incident Busts Out ‘Ten Miles To Tulsa’ At Electric Forest

The String Cheese Incident performed at Electric Forest in Rothbury, Michigan again on Friday night. The band followed Thursday’s single-song set with two headlining sets, the first of which featured a bust out performance of “Ten Miles To Tulsa” for its first appearance in 16 years.

“Ten Miles To Tulsa” was recorded by SCI guitarist Bill Nershi on the 2001 album he made with Liza Oxnard, It’s About Time. The song made its SCI live debut that year and was played sporadically in 2002 and a few times in 2003, but not since. SCI preceded the “Ten Miles To Tulsa” bust out with their first cover of Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way” since 2017. The two rarities were prefaced by the show opening “Vertigo” and “Eye Know Why” and followed by the set-closing run of “Hi Ho No Show” > “Close Your Eyes” > “Tinder Box.”

“Outside And Inside” started the second set and was trailed by “Illegal,” “Texas” and “Bhangra Saanj.” SCI then offered their cover of Talking Heads’ “Nothing But Flowers.” The second set closed with a combo of “Sirens” into “All We Got.”
