String Cheese Incident’s Rhythm of the Road
The String Cheese Incident has launched a new live archival series, Rhythm of the Road. The first installment in the series captures a standout performance at Atlanta’s Tabernacle on November 17, 2000.
As the band explains, “2000 was a big year for SCI as they became a true touring force, settling into larger venues for the first time, including Red Rocks in Colorado, The Warfield in San Francisco, and New Orleans’ Saenger Theatre. The band finished off a long East Coast fall tour with three nights in Athens and Atlanta, GA, and it’s the middle night on 11.17.00 that fans still talk about as one of the best in the band’s career. With special guest Tony Furtado on banjo for several songs and featuring covers of Led Zeppelin, Talking Heads, John Coltrane, Peter Rowan, and Peter Gabriel, as well as bluegrass standards and a host of SCI originals, this show is the perfect way to kick off The String Cheese Incident’s archival series ‘Rhythm of the Road.’” Rhythm of the Road: Volume 1, Incident in Atlanta – 11.17.00 will be available on November 9.
