The second half of the show continued with “The Big Reveal”, followed by “All We Got”. The band’s two-song encore started with a jam before continuing right into “San Jose” and closing with their return to “Desert Dawn”.Watch the band’s cover The Beatles’ “Polythene Pam” and ” She Came In Through The Bathroom Window” below.String Cheese Incident – “Polythene Pam” > “She Came In Through The Bathroom Window” – 5/25/2019[Video: Jonah Schulte]The band continues its run at The Capitol Theatre throughout the holiday weekend with two more shows scheduled for Sunday and Monday.
