Say Cheese: Rothbury 2009
Words By J-man
The stage was set for a reunion of sorts. Following an impromptu "rehearsal" at The Ogden in Denver, the boys headed to the beautiful state of Michigan. Rothbury Music Festival located on the west side of the mitten, featured picturesque views coupled with an incredible line-up of music, arts and improvised entertainment. Of course, the featured set of the weekend would be that of The String Cheese Incident! As the evening of July 3rd wound down, SCI took to the Odeum stage for what would be a performance of epic proportions...
