The String Cheese Incident kicked off a three-night run at Austin, TX’s Waller Creek Amphitheatre on Thursday night. While the group’s official Halloween celebration took place at Live Oak, FL’s Hulaween Festival this past weekend–where the Colorado outfit celebrated by covering a diverse mix of 1990s songs–the sextet couldn’t help but nodd to the holiday during their October 31 performance.
After kicking off their show with “Don’t It Make You Wanna Dance” and “Lost,” String Cheese segued into their debut take on Warren Zevon’s classic “Werewolves Of London,” before segueing into “Boo Boo’s Pik-A-Nik.” “Werewolves Of London” has, of course, been associated with Halloween in Grateful Dead circles since 1985, when the group opened their October 31 performance in Columbia, SC with the tune.
String Cheese Incident’s Austin run will come to a close this evening. After the show, drummers Michael Travis and Jason Hann will perform an EOTO set at Austin’s Control Room.
