As everyone scavenged to find some 3D glasses from the night before, the show kicked off with a beloved 15 minute “‘Round The Wheel.” Then “100 Year Flood” was played and we were reminded of flood relief victims in North Carolina which affected some of Billy’s immediate family. Next we heard a song that has never been played called “Travis,” which is an improvisational song with Michael Travis on the vocals. This song took us to another dimension, with it’s eery, yet beautiful lyrics, kind of similar to last New Years’ “I’m Still Here” that Michael Travis also sings and wrote, which we haven’t heard since. Next was “45th of November,” written with Robert Hunter, who also wrote a lot of Grateful Dead songs. This was a very emotional song for many fans, as it was sang very heartfelt by Kyle that night, bringing tears to many eyes, not to mention the sick nasty jam at the end that cleared the tears away and brought us into a magical realm that String Cheese jams often do. Finally, “Birdland > Flying Home Jam > Birdland” was the perfect ending to a perfect set. “Flying Home Jam” is usually sandwiched between “Birdland,” but somehow it was like it was the first time; it was just THAT good! This set blew everyone out of the water and was deemed a lot of fans’ favorite set of the weekend, giving us those classic cheesy songs that we were longing to hear after a super intense first night.

Set 2 was also super queso fuego, giving us classics we were dying to hear! Read more…
