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.

And what do all outdoor jam band shows bring? Hula hoops and hippies! Darn tootin'.

It ain't easy being cheesy!

And the encore begins with "Barstool"

"Round The Wheel." Honestly, there’s no better way to close out a SCI show.
