ROCKTIME PRESENTS
STRING CHEESE
INCIDENT
AT
THE WARFIELD
SAN FRANCISCO, CA.
7/24/03
               Where have all the hippies gone? Why in the world was this show not sold out? I can't think of any reason why this show wasn't Standing Room Only. The floor was completely sold out, but the balcony was empty. I know you're broke, we're all broke. Hippies unite, money is so trivial in comparison to a night of sheer delight. The String Cheese Incident just did a four night stint at the Warfield Theatre, affectionately known as "The church," by many folk. I was there with my wife on Thursday night, and we had a great time, absolutely thrilling. The show started a little slow, but was fully kicking by the end of a short first set. The best part about the String Cheese Incident is that they are always evolving and revolving through so many varied musical sounds. They are a rock and roll band sometimes, they are a bluegrass band sometimes, they are a percussion-based latin groove band, they are a heavy metal band (believe it, it's true!), they are a reggae band, but most of all, they are a jam band.

                    Improvisational masters of the jam, one of the few bands that have the audacious knack to barely stay within the confines of a musical piece while turning it into something completely different. Players with the depth of ability to slowly distort a song until the point at which it becomes completely  unrecognizable to the listener. Resulting in that moment when the crowd simultaneously gets that queried look as they realize they have absolutely no idea what song they are hearing. Most blink, and wonder how long they have been in this trance-like state. It's that particular moment where the art of musicianship is defined. A rare mastery is unveiled as the song is just as slowly returned to it's original form. The crowd finds an all mighty truth in being restored from confusion. A few far out members of the audience give a sigh of relief, and think"Whew, thank god, I'm not going crazy," as the song suddenly becomes familiar again. The jam can be so intense that when you go into the "zone," coming back into reality can be a little shocking. A lot of you would probably say, "It's not possible for music to transport you out of your body. I say, "Incidents like this are pretty regular, get into the "zone" at a String Cheese Incident show near you." Thanks for reading and we'll see ya at the shows.
