The String Cheese Incident Busts Out Grateful Dead Cover In Oregon
The String Cheese Incident continued their three-night run at the Cuthbert Amphitheater in Eugene, Oregon on Saturday night. The band busted out the Grateful Dead’s “Ripple” for the first time in over four years to close out the evening in honor of Robert Hunter who died earlier this week.
SCI kicked things off with “Manga” followed by “Got What He Wanted” into Billy Preston’s “Will It Go Round In Circles” and back into “GWHW” before jamming into “Believe.” “Gone Crooked” and “Pack It Up” came next. “Black & White” into “One Step Closer” brought the first frame to a close.
The second set got underway with “Vertigo.” Next, “Black Clouds” segued into “Close your Eyes” ahead of “Catfish John” and “Valley Of The Jig.” “Shantytown” then led into “Desert Dawn” to close out the second set. Cheese retook the stage for an encore of “Sweet Spot” and “Ripple.”
