String Cheese Incident Ogden Theater 6/24/09 Live Blog
4:25 I just drove by the Ogden and its a crazy scene outside. Seems the rail riders (pictured with the lawn chairs and umbrellas) have been there all day. Everyone's ticket is in willcall, and there are plently of fans looking for that magic ticket. I am one of the chosen ones with an invite/ticket, and am at my friend's Grant St. pre-party. ill do my best to keep you updated as the night unfolds.
6:02 the 13th st grant party is raging. So far there are 40 people, 5 capes, 16 hula hoops, 3 dogs, a keg, some strange pills, and lots of enthusiasm. I'm waking over to get my will-call tix; rumor is that they sold about 200 tix to fans when the box office opened.
6:32 imagine all the weird people you know. Imagine they are all in costumes of glitter and rainbows and are going to the same show. This is what is happening tonight in denver. I just got my tix and asked the girl at the desk what time the band starts. "8:00" what time do the unicorns go on stage? "I don't know". Pretty weak sauce at a cheese show if you ask me. ;)

8:01 jesus I have never seen so many people outside a venue looking for a ticket. There are probably 200 people outside with fingers in the air. Jt let me borrow his rainbow visor (with rotating lights) so I'm legit. Gonna go in soon but waiting on corey to arive (my plus 1)
8:24 interesting choice for pre show music: radiohead in rainbows. A lot of people I know that didn't have tickets yesterday are magically here. There is a schwilly crowd outside but inside its like a family reunion and all smiles. It feels like everyone that is supposed to be here got in somehow. It feels good.
8:35 lights! Cheese comes out to huge applause from the crowd. No costumes- everyone is wearing tshirts save kyle who has a sequin shirt on
