THE 2015 DIAL-A-SONG PROJECT. 52 NEW RECORDINGS over 52 WEEKS.
We are tremendously excited to tell you the 2015 Dial-A-Song project is just a few away. Every Monday afternoon an original recording by They Might Be Giants will premier on Slate’s The Gist with Mike Pesca’s podcast. Tuesday mornings the songs will be posted (often with an original video) on www.dialasong.com, our youtube channel ParticleMen, and also released on iTunes and all those other download gizmos. The Dial-A-Song Radio Network will also be spotlighting the songs on their weekly broadcasts.
DIAL-A-SONG DIRECT. FOR YOU, OR YOUR PAL AS A UNIQUE HOLIDAY GIFT!
If you are among those who want all the new songs right away you should get a Dial-A-Song Direct subscription. It will deliver 52 original recordings (as well as some very special Friday bonus material) into your or your friend’s inbox every week for the whole year of 2015. For just $30 you can have a front row seat to this unlikely adventure in music. We are partnering with the good folks at Drip.fm (We like to think Drip stands for “Dial-A-Song Recordings Is Perfect. For Music”) to deliver all the songs in downloadable format — WAV, FLAC, AIFF, MP3… the choice is yours! We have explored their service completely and can assure you it is highly reliable with a clean interface.

They’ll get a song immediately, and an explanation of the service (but you’ll have to tell them it’s from you!)
Greeting from John F. of They Might Be Giants with a note for all our new Instant Fan Club members. First—put fanclub at theymightbegiants.com into your address book. Now—please.
Also-signing up for an Instant Fan Club membership does not automatically set you up for your Dial-A-Song Direct subscription. You have to answer an invite email that has already been sent to your inbox.
If you have yet to answer an email sent to you from fillmore at drip.fm we urge you to search your inbox, find that invite email, and get your account activated as soon as possible. (Maybe it’s in your spam folder?) But please understand we can’t do that part for you, and you are about to miss out on new music!

TMBG will play the last Sunday of the month in 2015! So, each show is a different set, drawing on our illustrious 30 year career. The shows start relatively early and it’s “An Evening with” so getting to school or work the next morning shouldn’t be a total drag. The next four shows all feature different themes, all the favorites, as well as BRAND NEW SONGS from the Dial-A-Song project.
JANUARY Sunday 1/25 is SOLD OUT
FEBRUARY Sunday 2/22 Songs from the First Album
This show focuses on the band’s landmark debut album, often referred to as the “pink album.” It introduced the classics “Put Your Hand Inside the Puppet Head” and “Don’t Let’s Start” and established the band as innovators at the forefront of the alternative rock scene. http://www.musichallofwilliamsburg.com/e…
