The String Cheese Incident has made a big announcement today, revealing plans that will round out their 2016. The band will once again play New Year’s Eve at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, CO, but there’s a twist: no fall or winter shows until the three-night year ending run.It seems that SCI is going to focus the rest of 2016 on creating new music. As Michael Kang recently told us, “we just felt like it was necessary for us, creatively, to keep putting stuff out.” The band recently released a three-track album called SCI Sound Lab Vol 1, capturing songs new and old recorded at the band’s first-ever studio that they can call their own. “It’s kind of a laboratory for us,” said Kang in the recent L4LM interview.Though the band has a number of shows scheduled for the summer, they will not tour throughout the fall or winter seasons. Thus, the three nights from December 29-31 will serve as the only shows after this summer tour is finished. Fortunately, the summer tour just began last weekend at Electric Forest, and will continue throughout August. Of course, the band will be performing as scheduled at Hulaween.Tickets for the NYE shows will be released on August 10th via SCI Ticketing at 10am MDT, followed by a public on sale on Friday, August 12th.

Those musicians came together last night, as Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, Slash, Joe Bonamassa, Jimmie Vaughan, Quinn Sullivan, Joe Louis Walker, Jimmy Vivino, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Keb Mo, ZZ Ward and more were on hand to pay tribute.Thrown by the Grammy Foundation at the Wallis Annenburg Center in Beverly Hills, CA, you can watch some highlights from the performance below, thanks to 1AnitrasDance on YouTube.

Photo: Chad Anderson Photography Last night, on the same day David Byrne released American Utopia, his first solo album in a decade, the former Talking Heads frontman brought his “American Utopia” tour to Waterbury, CT’s Palace Theatre. The show marked just the fifth stop on a lengthy run that will stretch through the end of August and into September (with the recently announced NYC “Queens and Kings” shows at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn and Forest Hills Stadium in Queens).Byrne explained his excitement for this high profile tour in a recent statement: “We’ll be doing some new songs… and many others that will, I assume, be familiar. I’m excited. This is the most ambitious show I’ve done since the shows that were filmed for Stop Making Sense, so fingers crossed.” If the reviews of the first few shows of the run are any indication, this is surely a tour that we’ll be talking about for years to come. You can get a taste of the “American Utopia” spectacle by watching David Byrne’s performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, also from last night.Below, check out a full gallery of photos from David Byrne’s Waterbury, CT performance via photographer Chad Anderson.See below for a full list of dates.
