A special encore performance of The Flood Show in New York City:
A Grammy-winning celebration!
On the heels of their recent Grammy win, TMBG will perform a special set of songs for this installment of their monthly performance at LPR. After the sold out success of their last show, the band will once again perform their platinum album Flood in it's entirety, as well as a warm up set of songs new, old and possibly brand new. Flansburgh and Linnell will be backed up by their super-killer band Marty Beller on the drum, Dan Miller on guitar and Danny Weinkauf on bass. The show will also include an appearance by The Tricerachops Horns featuring Dan "The Machine" Levine on trombone, Curt Ramm on trumpet, and Stan "The Optimist" Harrison on saxophone and clarinet.
TMBG are also happy to welcome back their good friends all the way from Belfast, Northern Ireland--the always great, never late duo you can't overrate: Oppenheimer!
Alternative rock legends and Grammy winners They Might Be Giants return to the stage with their five piece band to celebrate the release of their new album "The Else" produced by the Dust Brothers and Pat Dillett.
Formed as a duo in 1982, They Might Be Giants has had a singular career. Their Dial-A-Song service predated much of today's DIY internet activity. The band enjoyed an amazing run of breakthrough videos on MTV in the late 80s and early 90s. Their album "Flood" went platinum. The band expanded to a more tradiional line-up, and developed a reputation as a "must see" live show. In the late 90s the band began expanding their horizons into television, movies, and the internet, notably contributing the opening theme to "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me," "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and the Grammy winning song "Boss of Me" for "Malcom in the Middle."
Last year TMBG launched their free monthly podcast which has turned into an underground national favorite, routinely popping into the top ten on iTunes music podcast chart (one of the few non-broadcast related efforts to do so), with hundreds of thousands of subscribers participating. The band has also collaborated with the beloved homestarrunner.com web site.
