The String Cheese Incident announces today that in 2011 they will be bringing back the always highly anticipated Winter Carnival. Set for Thursday, March 10, Friday, March 11, and Saturday, March 12 at the amazing 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, CO, the three-night run continues the long standing tradition of bringing SCI fans and diverse musical guests to Colorado for a snowy celebration. Joining SCI at Winter Carnival 2011 is British producer/electro-artist Ott, influential bluegrass legends J.D. Crowe & The New South and New Orleans’ premier new-school funk band, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk.
The String Cheese Incident community has come to expect a Conscious Alliance Food Drive at SCI events. For Winter Carnival, a 3‐panel event poster will be designed (one panel for each night). As always, the limited edition posters will be made available to concertgoers who contribute 10 non-perishable food items per panel, or 25 items for the complete set. Food collected at Winter Carnival 2011 will benefit the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. Visit www.consciousallaince.org for more information.
2010 was a remarkable year for The String Cheese Incident, with more than 15 years of touring under their belt the band entered a new phase where select events and special destinations took the place of long stretches on the road. This new touring model was highlighted by sold out stops at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Horning’s Hideout, and monstrous “Hulaween” Incidents at Hampton Coliseum. 2010 also found SCI launching the acclaimed classic archival series Rhythm of the Road, which kicked-off with the legendary Vol 1: Incident in Atlanta – 11.17.00 show from Atlanta, GA.
