Tom Tom Club, Rahzel, John Barlow Appear with String Cheese Incident For Subway Ride on the A-Train

String Cheese Incident welcomed a number of special guests for its second set Wednesday night at the Theater at Madison Square Garden. The band opened this set with a long segment structured as a tour of various subway stops on New York’s A-Train. John Barlow narrated the trip in the guise of poet Walt Whitman. This segment opened, with ‘Sweet Georgia Brown’ (125th St) and then traveled south to 72nd street (the location of John Lennon’s former apartment, the Dakota) at which point Chris Frantz, Tina Weymouth and Tom Tom Club joined String Cheese for ‘Instant Karma.’ Following ‘New York, New York’ (42nd St) and ‘So What’ (Greenwich Village) Rahzel appeared on beat box for ‘No Sleep ‘Til Brooklyn.’ Barlow later returned for the encore to offer a midnight Halloween invocation in the spirit of Whitman after which Rahzel rejoined the group for ‘Shakedown Street.’
String Cheese Incident will play evening at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia.
