They Might Be Giants to Play in Huntington on March 22nd | Ticket Giveaway
Live for Live Music is hosting They Might Be Giants at Huntington’s The Paramount on Friday, March 22nd. It will be the only NYC-area stop on their current U.S. tour, so don’t miss it! TMBG celebrated their 30th Anniversary last year, and are still going strong, having released Nanobots, their 16th album, on March 5th of this year. Opening the show will be Brooklyn’s Moon Hooch, who seamlessly blend house, dubstep, drum and bass, and jazz into a style that is uniquely their own. The show is for ages 14+.
They Might Be Giants was founded by John Flansburg (guitar) and John Linnell (acordian and saxophone) in Brooklyn in 1982, and in the ’90s they brought on a full band, with the current lineup consisting of Marty Beller, Dan Miller and Danny Weinkauf. TMBG’s sound can best be described as alternative, but extremely unconventional and experimental. Their 1990 album Flood is certified platinum and they’ve won two Grammys, one for “Boss of Me,” which is the theme song for the Fox comedy Malcolm in the Middle, and another for their 2008 children’s album Here Come the 123s. They Might Be Giants is always pushing the envelope and trying something new, and they always find great success. Over the course of their career, they’ve sold over 4 million records, which is a testament to how truly talented this group is.
I saw They Might Be Giants play six or seven years ago, and it still stands as one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. The guys are incredible musicians and super funny, and it makes for a really fun atmosphere. Get your tickets here, get their newest album here, and check out their awesome song “Birdhouse in Your Soul” below. Enjoy!
