THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS’ MASK POLICY

A message from John F. of They Might Be Giants:

Hey everybody! TMBG has a favor to ask.

We have started doing shows and friends have been asking how I feel about going out in public and, to be candid, my response has been “very excited and vaguely terrified.” In just the last few months a good friend of mine has just come down with long Covid and it has served as a vivid reminder that this situation is not over.

I know it’s a chore, but this request really is a small one: please wear a mask when you come to our show. A quality mask (N95, KN95, or KF94) is a proven effective barrier to Covid transmission.

We have all waited a long time for this, and our team has worked tirelessly to keep these shows on the books. It would be super-unfortunate for it all to be leading to infections for anyone—you, the band, the crew—all of us.

And if you really want to be of service for public health, bring a spare fresh one for your spacey friend or a spacey stranger.

Thank you.

John F.

PS: we are giving away THEY crowns for FREE and they are super fun! Limited quantities will be available at each show, so try to arrive early and beat the lines at the door.

THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS PRESENT 30th ANNIVERSARY FLOOD SHOW

In honor of the album that made them an international act, They Might Be Giants is celebrating Flood’s 30th anniversary in 2020 by performing the album, in its entirety, on stages in select cities across the US. The show is “an evening with” and TMBG will play two full sets with their electrifying live band featuring the show-stopping Tricerachops Horns. How will it be presented? In sequence, in reverse sequence, alphabetical, or mixed into additional repertoire? It could be different on any given night. But, in addition to Flood, the song selection in the “evening with” show will span the band’s entire career from early favorites to brand new tracks, as well as the live improvisations that have become a highlight of TMBG shows.

ABOUT FLOOD

Before Alternative Rock, when rock dinosaurs still roamed the earth, They Might Be Giants crawled out of the primordial performance art scene of the Lower East Side and on to the college rock scene with a series of breakthrough songs and best-selling albums. Vaulted into the national scene by a series of highly creative videos, the band ultimately garnered the attention of the powerhouse major-label Elektra Entertainment. Collaborating with British hit-makers Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley, as well as emerging indie engineers Roger Moutenot and Patrick Dillett, the band embarked on an album that would leave their lo-fi roots behind in exchange for a sonic adventure to be called Flood. Embraced by critics and audiences alike, the 19-song album would go on to go platinum and garner a clutch of timeless favorites for the band including “Birdhouse in Your Soul,” “Your Racist Friend,” “Istanbul (Not Constantinople),” “Particle Man,” “Dead,” and many others.

SOME MORE GOOD NEWS IN BAD TIMES FROM THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS

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. Over the course of a wild month, the TMBG fan community raised $60,000. In the last days of the fundraiser, John Flansburgh accidentally auto-filled an email address meant for a Jeff on the band’s road crew with Jeff Lawson, the founder of Twilio, who had hosted the band at a company event a few years back. Jeff mentioned he was encouraged by the band’s effort to raise money to end this harrowing episode and he offered to match any funds raised by the band. This, in turn, led to a whole new wave of interest on social media, ultimately bringing the total money raised to $200,000. (Yes, the band raised $200,000 for a very good cause by selling t-shirts!)
