String Cheese Concludes Las Vegas Run With Three Set Masterpiece [Video/Recap]

first_imgLast night marked the third and final night of The String Cheese Incident’s run at the Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas, NV. The band took things a bit deeper on Sunday night, playing a short acoustic set as a warm up for the Cheesy madness to come. By all accounts, it was quite the celebration.The show opened with a special Cheese acoustic set, as the band welcomed mandolinist Jack Rajca to the stage. Rajca was the writing partner with Bill Nershi just before SCI was formed, over 20 years ago, and the duo wrote songs like “Lester Had A Coconut” and more together. In fact, “Lester” was the opening number for this stripped down segment, which also featured “Blue Ridge Cabin Home,” “Crosseyed Possum,” and “Temperance Reel.” After a short break, the band got back down to it for two more sets of classic String Cheese. Tunes like “Just One Story,” “Little Hands” and “It Is What It Is” kept the fans grooving right along, and the group closed out the second set with “Let’s Go Outside.” Still, there was more to come, as the group opened up set three with “Birdland” and rocked a “Joyful Sound > Rumble > Howard” combination later in the set.To close out set three, the group played “Outside and Inside” into The Allman Brothers’ “Jessica.” The unexpected cover was quite the treat, keeping the fans smiling through to the two-song encore of “Late in the Evening” and “Restless Wind.” With that, Cheese bid their fans a fond farewell, putting a cap on three nights in Vegas and a hugely successful March Madness tour.Next up for Cheese is Electric Forest in June. Check out the full setlist below, courtesy of Friends of Cheese: Setlist: The String Cheese Incident at Brooklyn Bowl, Las Vegas, NV – 3/20/16Set One: Lester Had A Coconut1, Blue Ridge Cabin Home1, Crosseyed Possum1, Temperance Reel1Set Two: Just One Story, Sometimes A River, Little Hands, Yo Se, Falling Through the Cracks, It Is What It Is, Let’s Go OutsideSet Three: Birdland, You’ve Got the World, Hotel Window, Joyful Sound > Rumble > Howard, BollyMunster, Outside and Inside > JessicaEncore: Late in the Evening, Restless WindNotes:1 acoustic, with Jack Rajcalast_img
