The String Cheese Incident & Big Gigantic Present Big Gigantic Incident In Colorado

Last night The String Cheese Incident began a home state three-show New Year’s Run at 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado. The concert showcased an opening set by SCI and a collaborative Big Gigantic Incident set featuring Colorado-based duo Big Gigantic and The String Cheese Incident performing together.

“Round The Wheel” followed by a pairing of “Lost” with “Black Clouds” set The String Cheese Incident’s first set in motion. Despite a broken wrist, keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth powered through a cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Master Blaster (Jammin’),” which was was nestled among SCI originals “Sweet Spot,” “Miss Brown’s Teahouse” and the set closing “Roll Over.”

Big Gigantic’s drummer Jeremy Salken and saxophonist Dominic Lalli returned with the members of SCI for the Big Gigantic Incident second set that opened with “Bam!” The set stuck mainly to String Cheese material including “Joyful Sound” and “Can’t Wait Another Day.” During a rendition of “Jellyfish” the collective worked in a take on Big Gigantic’s “C’Mon” which was the first such attempt by SCI. The subsequent “BollyMunster” contained the SCI debut of Big Gigantic’s “I’ve Gotta Know” within the set closing performance. The String Cheese Incident’s “Rosie” and “Desert Dawn” surrounded their first time playing Big Gigantic’s “Touch The Sky” during the three song encore.

The String Cheese Incident returns to 1st Bank Center tonight with The Floozies opening. Tomorrow’s New Year’s Eve “An Evening With SCI” concert will feature three sets by The String Cheese Incident – webcasts are available for each night.
