The Infamous Stringdusters kicked off 2020 in extraordinary fashion with a SOLD OUT show at Denver, CO's Mission Ballroom Saturday night, January 11. Denver's own Trout Steak Revival provided opening duties.

The first delivered many Stringdusters' staples including Carry Me Away, Gravity (off the band's GRAMMY-award winning Laws of Gravity), their beautiful instrumental off Rise Sun, Cloud Valley and covers that included ZZ Top's Sharp Dressed Man and Phish's Possum. While the show itself was billed as "the Infamous Stringdusters with Michael Travis and Jason Hann" (both of the String Cheese Incident), the rhythm section did not appear until set two, and performed with the Dusters through the encore with highlights that included Rise Sun's title track Rise Sun, Planets and covers of the String Cheese Incident's Restless Wind and Bollymonster. The show was capped off by a rocking cover of the Grateful Dead's Shakedown Street.
