"Cheese's set at Rothbury last year, was COMPLETELY life changing. I did not come back home the same person. I've been listening to Cheese for quite awhile but never got the privilege to see them live until last year. MOST EPIC SET OF THE WHOLE FESTIVAL, beating out The Dead. I was sober, and didn't stop dancing the entire time, my boyfriend and I traveled hundreds of miles all the way from Colorado, just us, completely un-prepared. It was our first festival, so we didn't know what to expect, we only had money for gas to get there and the ticket and thats about it. Everyone had their prime EZ ups, and we just huddled under one tapestry we had stashed in the car. It was amazing and the most heavenly, beautiful, life changing experience I've ever had. I came home, and told my dad I wasn't going to live under his wing anymore, I applied to University of Colorado for the Fine Arts program, after years of being pressured to join military, and now following my dreams and passions. Although I didn't have a direct experience with String Cheese, the show on Independence day gave me the hope to stand up to my dad, and follow my dreams.
Below I attached a photo that isn't the best quality, but represents the feelings I had coming home from Rothbury. The sunset on our drive back to Colorado. I chose this picture, because it was a bittersweet ending to the most enchanting weekend I've ever had, knowing I was going back home and not going to lie to my parents about what I truly love. This represents a new chapter in my life."
