Two-time Grammy winners, They Might Be Giants solidified their place as alternative rock legends with the release of their platinum album Flood, which is coming up on its 30th anniversary in 2020. In honor of the album that made them an international act, the band will perform Flood in its entirety in select cities across the US. The show is “an evening with” and TMBG will play two full sets with their barnstorming live band featuring the show-stopping Curt Ramm on trumpet. The first leg of announced dates sold out instantly with additional spring dates announced this week going on sale this Friday, November 15. Don’t sleep on them!
Promising to deliver their captivating exuberance and head-spinning spur-of-the-moment improvisations to rapturous audiences, the tour kicks off this Saturday, November 16 with a special performance on Live from Here with Chris Thile at NYC’s prestigious Town Hall.
Additionally, the band’s beloved, eponymous first album is celebrating it’s 33 1/3 birthday with a fully remastered vinyl re-issue available now. The Don’t Let’s Start EP vinyl re-issue and John Linnell’s State Songs vinyl re-issue will both be released on November 29 as Black Friday Record Store Day exclusives.
In August, TMBG offered up a special limited edition benefit t-shirt with 100% of profits going to RAICES, a Texas legal team aiding separated families and detained minors seeking asylum in the US. Through the generosity and passion for the cause of Jeff Lawson, the founder of Twilio who offered to match any funds raised by the band, they raised a total of $200,000.
TMBG started with a Dial-A-Song service, powered by a lone phone machine out of their Brooklyn apartments. Since then they have made 22 albums, and have secretly infiltrated your TV with original themes and incidental music to numerous shows and commercials. Catch the band live in a city near you and stay tuned as they work feverishly to complete that elusive 23rd album.
