There are a select few venues in the United States that will make your jaw drop to the floor upon your initial walk through the venue’s doors. Kings Theatre is one of those venues.

The historic Kings Theatre re-opened its grand doors last year after the wondrous theater shuttered 38 years prior. After an over $90 million restoration, the neglected venue was reborn into the opulent “Wonder Theatre” it was always destined to be.

Tonight, The String Cheese Incident will hit the stage at The Peach Music Festival for their own set as well as the highly anticipated Allman Brothers Family Incident  featuring all members of SCI along with Butch Trucks, Jaimoe, Oteil Burbridge, Marc Quinones, Bruce Katz, and Scott Sharrard. Following these Peach performances, Kings Theatre will then host The String Cheese Incident as they close out their summer tour with a two night run this Saturday and Sunday. The next time we will see The String Cheese Incident will be at their annual Hulaween fest at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park.

For those planning to attend the shows in Brooklyn, make sure you come early and kickstart your evening by hanging in the new courtyard at Kings Theatre. Beer garden, food trucks and the chance you may even see a band member or two. Can this weekend possibly get any better?

It all started when a much younger Jackie dove into her parents’ record collection, grabbed that trippy Magical Mystery Tour album, and played “Strawberry Fields” over and over again until it was engrained into her soul. She grew up on the dreams and stories of Simon and Garfunkel, “Bleeker Street” being one of her favorites, the seduction of The Doors, Van Morrison, because “Brown Eyed Girl” is definitely her song, and the likes of Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Jimi Hendrix…you get the picture. It may not show on the outside, but Jackie has a hippie heart, and that reflects in her musical tastes today. While some of her favorites may or may not be jam bands, her taste in music feeds into many genres. From alternative, Brit, and indie rock - OK, maybe all rock - to pop, to rap, to electronic, she loves it all. As a northerner, she thought she would never understand country until she found herself on a Georgia farm in cowboy boots watching Luke Bryan shake it for her- yeah, she got that. She is a chronic wanderluster, she doesn't believe in guilty pleasures, enjoys a great Moscow Mule, and is an absolute music festival fanatic- you’ll find her wherever the music takes her.
