The String Cheese Incident closed out their multi-night run at North Plains, OR’s Horning’s Hideout last night. At the start of their show, mandolin wiz Sam Bush emerged alongside The String Cheese Incident for the first part of their set, including “Hold Whatcha Got,” “Whiskey Before Breakfast,” “Old Train” and “MLT.” He remained onstage as longtime Bill Nershi collaborator Liza Oxnard joined in on Bob Marley’s “One Love.” As Oxnard left the stage, Bush and SCI jumped into “Lonesome Fiddle Blues.” Later in the night, Bush took the stage with The String Cheese Incident a second time at the start of their second set for “Black Clouds” and “Rivertrance.”

Likewise, The String Cheese Incident’s Saturday night shows at Horning’s Hideout featured some bonus festivities. As is their Saturday night Horning’s Hideout tradition, the members of String Cheese Incident cleared fans out of space in front of the bowl-shaped venue’s stage for a “ritual set.” As the band performed a freeform, trance-like jam, the space was filled with fire dancers, acrobats and other Burning Man-style performers. A psychedelic jellyfish was also unleashed into the audience.
In addition, The String Cheese Incident performed their cover of The Police’s “Synchronicity 1” for the first time since 2010.
