String Cheese Incident Brings Back “Blue Bossa,” Covers Allman Brothers In Atlanta [Full Audio/Photos]

first_imgLoad remaining images Last night, String Cheese Incident took to Atlanta, Georgia, kicking off their two-night run at Chastain Park Amphitheatre. For Friday’s performance, despite brutal storms rolling through during the middle of the first and second set, String Cheese Incident was energized and in proper form, still making for a magical night (with the stage being set against the backdrop of a rainbow at points). Particularly considering that these of shows will serve as the group’s last run ahead of their annual return to the iconic outdoor Colorado venue, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, it’s clear that String Cheese is heating up and not letting anything getting away.The String Cheese Incident Busted Moves Like Jagger On Opening Night Of Electric ForestAcross both sets, String Cheese exhibited exemplary cross-song jamming. From the get-go, the show-opening sequence of “So Far From Home” through “Lost” into Peter Rowan’s “Walls Of Time” was tight and dialed-in. After “The Road Home,” which segued into another Peter Rowan cover—this time, a stellar rendition of “Midnight Moonlight”—the first set hit its climax. The group brought back “Blue Bossa,” which hasn’t seen airtime since the group’s Red Rocks performance on July 26th, 2015, making for close to a two-year gap in between plays. “Blue Bossa,” as is only appropriate for a performance in Atlanta, then transitioned into the Allman Brothers’ “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More,” which was a fitting tribute to the late Gregg Allman and Butch Trucks, both of whom passed earlier in the year.The String Cheese Incident, Garaj Mahal, Oteil Burbridge & More To Play Element Music FestivalThe second set was served up as a seven-song, close to non-stop sandwich around “Just One Story.” After the opening “Just One Story,” String Cheese expertly moved into “My One And Only,” further highlighting the Colorado ensemble’s attention to thoughtful and tight transitions during last night’s show. From there, “Galactic” kicked off the sprint to the end of the set, with “Sing A New Song,” “Sirens,” and “Hi Ho No Show” making appearances ahead of the set-closing return to “Just One Story,” with Kyle Hollingsworth regularly teasing “Shakedown Street” throughout. With the weather clear and spirits high, String Cheese returned with an encore of “Falling Through The Cracks,” which eventually led into a cover of Johnny Cash’s “Ring Of Fire” to end their show.You can listen to the full show below, courtesy of Dillon Fries, plus check out photos from last night, courtesy of Joshua Lumsden. Setlist: String Cheese Incident | Chastain Park | Atlanta, GA | 7/7/2017Set One: So Far From Home> Lost> Walls of Time, The Road Home> Midnight Moonlight, Blue Bossa> Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More, Give Me The Love> CollidingSet Two: Just One Story> My One And Only, Galactic> Sing A New Song> Sirens> Hi Ho No Show> Just One StoryEncore: Falling Through The Cracks> Ring Of Firelast_img
