The String Cheese Incident Serves Up Hearty “Just One Story” Sandwich On Night 2 At The Capitol Theatre

first_imgOn Sunday, The String Cheese Incident returned to The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY for the second show of their three-night Memorial Day Weekend run.The six-piece powerhouse opened up their first set with “Vertigo”, a more recent tune penned by guitarist Bill Nershi and his wife, Jillian, out of the band’s SCI Sound Lab. The crowd’s energy was impossible to ignore from the opening notes of the show, giving Michael Kang to amp them up even more with an explosive solo. Kyle Hollingsworth led the band into “Black and White” with a tenacious intro on the keys, followed by some impressive interplay between Kang and Nershi moving out of the song’s main theme. “Black and White” smoothly segued into the Hollingsworth-led “Cant Wait Another Day”, highlighted by some improvisational wizardry out of Kyle’s corner. Cheese kept things rolling with a tender take on Peter Rowan‘s “Midnight Moonlight”, followed by a bouncy take on “Valley Of The Jig”. The band closed out their first set with a massive pairing of “Sirens” into “Restless Wind”, with Nershi getting his chance to show off his impeccable acoustic picking skills on the latter.Following a brief setbreak, the band returned to open their second set with “Just One Story”, as Michael Travis and Jason Hann got things fired up behind their kits. Cheese ultimately ended up leaving “Just One Story” open-ended and dove back into the fan-favorite to close out their set. The band moved forward with solid takes on “Rosie” and “Song In My Head” before charging into a cover of Jerry Garcia Band‘s “Tore Up Over You”, delighting the crowd in a venue that’s hosted countless Grateful Dead shows over the years. A lengthy run through “45th of November” smoothly segued into a cover of Talking Heads‘ “Burning Down The House”, last played in 2016 at Hulaween. Cheese took The Cap deep into bluegrass territory, as the band sandwiched “Wheel Hoss” in between a tasty “Birdland” before coasting back into “Just One Story”, properly ending the set-opener. The band offered up a lone encore of “Barstool”.Tonight, Monday, The String Cheese Incident returns to The Capitol Theatre to close out their three-night holiday weekend run.For tickets and a full list of The String Cheese Incident’s ongoing 25th-anniversary tour dates, head to the band’s website.Setlist: The String Cheese Incident | The Capitol Theatre | Port Chester, NY | 5/26/2019Set One: Vertigo, Black and White > Can’t Wait Another Day > Midnight Moonlight, Valley Of The Jig, Sirens > Restless WindSet Two: Just One Story > Rosie, Song In My Head, Tore Up Over You, 45th of November > Burning Down The House > Birdland > Wheel Hoss > Birdland > Just One StoryEncore: Barstoollast_img
