THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS IN NEW YORK CITY, ACROSS CANADA, THE UNITED STATES and PHILADELPHIA FOR NEW YEAR’S EVE!

They Might Be Giants are on the road! Coinciding with the release of their brilliant new studio album, I Like Fun, and a year of weekly song posts on their Dial-A-Song service at www.dialasong.com, They Might Be Giants is back on the road with a new show with an expanded line-up of musicians. 

New show! Two sets! Curt Ramm on trumpet! Favorites! Deep cuts! New songs! More cursing!
All shows are “An Evening With TMBG.” A big night out! We start early with no opening act, and play two full sets. This expanded set up allows us to include many different songs. All the classic TMBG favorites with new selections from I Like Fun, Apollo 18, and Mink Car coming on board. While the show changes almost every night we always make a point to spotlight John L.’s contra alto clarinet as well as the Curt Ramm trumpet. And yes there is a show within a show—we have the Quiet Storm; a set of new arrangements of songs where it’s often quiet but always stormy.

Why is the world in love again? They Might Be Giants have released I Like Fun, a remarkable 15-track album.

I Like Fun jumps with surprises, vitality, and the startling point of view of these Brooklyn originals. Over a year in the making, songwriters and band founders John Linnell and John Flansburgh draw on themes of dread, death, and disappointment and set them to their driving, hyper-melodic music. The results will leave even the most heavy-hearted among us with a renewed sense of wonder. Fresh and sonically adventurous, the band’s command of the studio and the song is in rare form from beginning to end. 

On I Like Fun, the spotlight is also on the band’s formidable long-standing live lineup; drummer Marty Beller, bassist Danny Weinkauf and lead guitarist Dan Miller. While the group enjoys a reputation for delivering one of the liveliest shows around, the album accomplishes the rare feat of capturing that ecstatic intensity on disc. Co-produced with and mixed by Patrick Dillett (St. Vincent, Donald Fagen, The National, Mary J. Blige), the album was tracked and mixed at the brand-new Reservoir Studios—site of the legendary Skyline Studios where TMBG recorded their platinum-selling album Flood.
