Park City had an incident last night, and it involved hula-hoops, tie-dye shirts, acoustic instruments, a mess of coolers and some very long jams.---

String Cheese Incident, an improv-heavy jam band hailing from the great state of Colorado, came the mountain town and rocked out to their huge and loyal fan base. The fervent high-energy jams--especially Bill Nershi’s epic finger picking--marked the highlightof the night. SCI came out swinging and for a little less than four hours kept hippies' hips swinging in circles and the overall positive vibe rocking.
