Product Description

Join The String Cheese Incident as they take a look back at the epic New Year's Eve celebration of 2000. "Evolution" examines the creativity, spirit, and hard work that goes into making a night of magical music and adventure. The film goes behind the scenes of "2001: A String Cheese Odyssey" to capture the unique nature of a New Year's Eve show. Using a collection of rare footage and interviews with band members, event producers, and audience members, "Evolution" offers insight into the driving force behind The String Cheese Incident, as well as a retrospective examination of the band from its beginnings. Songs: Rollover, Shine, Rhythm of the Road, Indian Creek, Search, Sand Dollar, Joyful Sound (with Dr. Didg), Kidney in a Cooler (with Keller Williams Howard).

Forget any pejorative definition of "jam band" you've ever heard and do yourself a favor: buy this DVD right now, make space for it on your shelf (preferably next to Talking Heads' Stop Making Sense), and play it as often as possible. You needn't be a Deadhead or a Phish-phile to appreciate the String Cheese Incident's multi-ethnic blend of eclectic styles and feel-good vibes, originating from Colorado, rooted in bluegrass, and transmitting to the world via this warmly hypnotic concert, captured on December 31, 2000, in Portland, Oregon. Informative interviews with band members and show producers are smoothly blended with SCI's onstage modus operandi, which invites audience immersion in a communal experience of music, dance, and light. Guest appearances by Steel Pulse and Keller Williams are delightful, the bonus tracks are sweet, and the 5.1-channel sound is perfect. It's virtually impossible to be in a bad mood while watching this DVD--what more could you ask? --Jeff Shannon

I can't believe all the whiners that gave this one star. I've had this DVD for years and have seen it numerous times and still enjoy it every time I see it. I'm a Dead-vet with more than 60 shows under my belt, and say without hesitation that SCI brings it on a nightly basis better than the Dead did for the last 15 years of Jerry's life. I realize this is blasphemy in many people's book, but we're all entitled to our own opinion. I've seen SCI more than 10 times over the past 7 years and I think they're still getting better. The past couple years have been incredible! So ignore those that say that they're past they're peak and go see them the next chance you get. Until, enjoy the history and quality music on this disc! Seeing Keller Williams play "Kidney in a Cooler" is worth the price alone.

I tried really hard to understand this DVD, and why everyone likes it so much, but I just can't get it. And mind you, I'm a huge fan of the band, seen them four times.
But this disc is really just a joke. The performance filmed (the 2000 New Year's show) wasn't even one of the band's best nights, for starters. Then you get partial songs (not even the best of the night), interrupted rudely by really worthless comments from the band members, with each band member basically re-wording the same ideas multiple times throughout the video. The live footage is far from brilliant either. Granted, I'm sure the band didn't have a U2-sized budget to film it, but it's visually among the weakest live concert DVD footage I've ever seen.
If you're expecting any kind of "at home" String Cheese live experience, you're probably going to be disappointed. Continual disruptions in the music, poor editing of song lengths, bad visual effects, and some questionable song choices to begin with (Howard and Turn This Around, but no Rivertrance? Come on) make this almost unwatchable.
Obviously the band got a little big-headed and opted to make a self-fufilling "documentary" instead of just releasing an uncut show on their first DVD. Save your money, go see a real SCI show, and hope that the band learns their lesson and a better DVD follows soon.

As others have said, this is not a concert DVD in the usual sense, but rather it tracks the "evolution" of the group, with lots of "cinema verite" touches. The parts shot in Portland during Y2K are somewhat embarrassing to a portlander, but then now we have "Portlandia," which is what we so richly deserve. A much better concert dvd of SCI is the Denver Fillmore collection. THIS dvd violates one of my "concert video" rules: Never, EVER, interrupt a live performance with a stupid offset interview, or, in the case of this mess, a lovely "nature" video. If I want that crap, I'll watch AMTRAK commercials for the soaring eagles, rushing rivers, etc., etc. On the other hand, I got this thing used for about five bucks, postage included...

To all the complainers and haters on this review board, you should listen to more music than complain about what you don't understand. The DVD is a great look into the band, and as it says on the cover the "Evolution of String Cheese." It has in depth interviews that give you a sense of knowledge behind the band, their inspiration, and their music.

Secondly, I would not even begin to read the review that speaks of the Dead's mediocre albums and such. The guy says besides American Beauty and Working Man's Dead. Um...does Wake of the Flood, Blues for Allah, and Shakedown ring a bell? Probaly not because this "listener" and "follower" of the dead isn't one at all. He's a hippocrit and a head follower. (not a deadhead) I think this guy who rated this DVD one star should maybe dive a little deeper past the 11th grade knowledge of the grateful dead.

Anyways...great DVD for Cheese fans. If you're not a cheese fan, I don't know why you'd want to start to know them before knowing their music...so I guess I suggest this to Cheese fans.

And by the way...check a few Grateful Dead albums while you're waiting for your delivery.

13 years later it was fantastic to see one of my favorite weekends of music and all the effort it goes in to producing an incident!
