The String Cheese Incident kicked off a three-night, year-closing stand at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, last night, and the band marked the night with a live debut of one of their newer tracks.
The debut came as the second song of the second set, when SCI gave their first live performance of “So Much Fun,” which appears on their most recent album, Believe. The set also featured a “Best Feeling” with an interlude of Bob Marley’s “Exodus,” and the night’s encore offered up Jesse Stone’s “Don’t Let Go,” a tune played frequently by the Jerry Garcia Band (and the title of one of the band’s live albums).
See the full setlist below, along with video of each set opener. The String Cheese Incident continue their New Year’s Eve run tonight with another Capitol Theatre performance.
