Repeat Incident

Colorado electronic-psychedelic-jamgrass-rockers String Cheese Incident will reform after breaking up less than 2 years ago (with a final show at Red Rocks in August 2007) to play the Rothbury festival over July 4th weekend somewhere in Michigan. SCI will be joining fellow headliners Bob Dylan and The Dead (not appearing together) at the four day festival.

Relatedly, with Bruce Hornsby joining the Allman Brothers Band last night for a rendition of Bill Withers' "Grandma's Hands" I did some googling to find information on the song. As it turns out, Bruce perfomed the same song with String Cheese on 2/15/01 at Denver's Fillmore Auditorium (where I saw Phil Lesh and Friends perform with Ryan Adams the night before I saw them perform at the aforementioned Red Rocks).

Also at that February concert with Bruce and SCI, they performed a cover of The Beatles' "I've Just Seen A Face" from possibly my favorite Beatles album, "Help!", which is said to have been influenced by the aforementioned Bob Dylan.

Also appearing at Rothbury this summer will be Allman Brothers' guitarist Warren Haynes with both Gov't Mule and the aforementioned The Dead.

Will It Go Round in Circles?

It seems like rock n roll does. The circle of rock, as it were. Nice post. Although you got some free time, huh? ;-)
