The String Cheese Incident celebrated the 4th of July on Thursday with their second of two shows at the Iroquois Amphitheatre in Louisville, KY, and the band marked the occasion with a few choice cover tunes that nodded to the national holiday.

The group kicked off set two last night by playing around with Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA” and followed that up by fitting a cover of James Brown’s “Living in America” into their own “Bam!” Both tunes were debuts for the band. SCI would later close out the second set with an extended “Howard” that featured an interpolation of “The Star Spangled Banner” for Independence Day. The group then wrapped up the evening with an encore cover of Talking Heads’ “This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody).”

Check out the full setlist below, along with fan-shot footage from last night. The String Cheese Incident continue their summer tour tonight with the first of two shows at The Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA.
