String Cheese Incident Bust Out "Whiskey River" on Final Night of Austin Run
The String Cheese Incident wrapped up their three-night run at The Backyard in Austin, TX last night. The band showed off their versatility during the show, as they moved through a variety of different styles, from bluegrass to dubstep.
In a notable move, The String Cheese Incident busted out “Whiskey River” for the first time since July 8, 2005. The performance also included a tease of Miles Davis’ classic composition “All Blues” during “Lost,” and an electro-psychedelic double whammy to end the second set, as “Rivertrance” played into the new womped out rendition of “Desert Dawn.” Interestingly, SCI also covered Stevie Wonder’s “Boogie On Reggae Woman,” which was played by Phish last night as well.
