The String Cheese Incident Offer July 4th Run on DVD and BluRay

The String Cheese Incident will release their July 4th run at The Backyard in Austin, TX on DVD and BluRay. The three show run, which spanned July 4-6, featured some surprise performances including the debut cover of Grateful Dead’s “U.S. Blues” as well as a stunning “Miss Brown’s Teahouse” which featured segments of “Chameleon.”

Fans can purchase all three shows via TourGigs.

The band took to Facebook to preview the release:

For the first time in seven years, The String Cheese Incident returned to Austin for a three night run at the Backyard. Fans old and new showed up for the weekend and the energy was palpable from the get-go. The outdoor venue proved to be a perfect setting for this Incident; beautiful sunsets shone upon the crowd as the first set of each night came to a close. After the sun had set, the lighting rig dazzled the crowd and the more experimental, electronic side of The String Cheese Incident was unleashed on the ecstatic fans. This run is packed with moments illustrating why The String Cheese Incident has such a dedicated and loyal fan base.

A brief list of highlights from the weekend include the debut cover of the Grateful Dead’s “U.S. Blues” to commemorate the 4th of July and the funky “Rosie” encore that had the entire audience getting down; “Land’s End” with it’s associated jams and “Come As You Are” with a stand-out improv jam in night two; and “Lost>Rhum N’ Zouc” and the funky Herby Hancock song “Chameleon” effortlessly woven into “Miss Brown’s Teahouse” on the last night of the weekend. Fans were treated to songs old and new, and you can now watch this entire run in multi-cam stunning HD. From the opening notes of “Lonesome Fiddle Blues” on the 4th to the appropriate “Texas” encore to close out the weekend, this is an Incident you can relive again and again!

SCI, the biggest joke of a band, bringing the big suck to a store near you.

Haaa y’all sound like my grandpa reliving the Good Ole days. This three day run crushed it, and yes there was still plenty of late night debauchery including late night sets at the park. Honestly, the new backyard is better that the old IMO. Old backyard was tiny.
