The String Cheese Incident delivered a number of live debuts, including four cover debuts, during their two performances at the second weekend of Electric Forest 2018. The new material included songs by Tom Petty, Traffic, Peter Gabriel, and Johnny Nash, as well as two recently released tracks from the SCI Sound Lab.The first debut came during Friday night’s second set, which opened with the first-ever performance of “The Big Reveal”, a Grateful Dead-inspired tune that was penned by keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth (the band released a studio version of the tune last week). Toward the end of that same set, SCI treated fans to a rendition of Tom Petty’s Southern Accents classic “Don’t Come Around Here No More”. Other covers, such as Stevie Wonder’s “I Wish” and The Doors’ “Riders On The Storm”, also appeared during the show.Fans were treated to even more debuts on Saturday night, when SCI reconvened for their second show and its theatrical second set, an annual event known as the “Shebang” set. However, the first debut, a cover of Traffic’s John Barleycorn Must Die instrumental “Glad”, came before the second set’s theatrics got underway. The three debuts that followed came one-by-one during the Shebang set as the band worked through Peter Gabriel’s “Red Rain” and Johnny Nash’s “I Can See Clearly Now” before welcoming singer Ruby Chase for the live debut of “Otherside” (the dance-pop track was released a few weeks ago in collaboration with Chase and L.A.-based electronic music trio TELYKast). “Rider on the Storm” also reappeared during the set, which featured a cover Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” as well.Recordings of borth Friday and Saturday night’s shows are available for purchase via LiveCheese.com.String Cheese Incident’s “Shebang Set”Setlist: String Cheese Incident | Electric Forest | Rothbury, MI | 6/29/2018Set One: Eye Know Why, One Step Closer, Get Tight, Way That It Goes, Lonesome Fiddle Blues, Best Feeling > CollidingSet Two: The Big Reveal^, Just One Story > Texas > Riders On The Storm > Texas, I Wish, Purple Strains (Earl’s Song), Way Back Home > Don’t Come Around Here No More*, Way Back HomeEncore: Hi Ho No Show > Just One Story^ = SCI original, debut* = Tom Petty cover (FTP)Setlist: String Cheese Incident | Electric Forest | Rothbury, MI | 6/30/2018Set One: Black Clouds, Nothing But Flowers, On The Road, Falling Through The Cracks, Looking Glass > Glad* > HowardSet Two: Stop Drop Roll, Sometimes A River, Bumpin Reel, Riders On The Storm > Immigrant Song > Red Rain^ > I Can See Clearly Now~ Otherside$, Tinder Box, Dirk > BollyMunster* = Traffic cover (FTP)^ = Peter Gabriel cover (FTP) w/ Ruby Chase~ = Johnny Nash cover (FTP)$ = SCI & TELYKast original, debut, w/ Ruby Chase

Here’s one we’ve heard before regarding the current cold weather impact on the Mountain Pine Beetle….too little, too late. Staffan Lindgren, of the University of Northern B-C in Prince George says, the beetle larvae have already produced their natural anti-freeze, making them less susceptible to the cold. He adds, while temperatures around Prince George, like here in the Peace, have been below minus 30 in recent days, most beetle larvae can withstand minus-40 degrees for short periods.- Advertisement –
