They Might be Giants

Filed under: Culture — mmrobins @ 5:24 pm

Another concert! This one at the Paramount on Monday night. I’ve always wondered how They Might Be Giants performs since they’re just two guys named John. Now I know. They have a backup band. I somehow thought it might be more exciting.

They were their own warmup act. They performed minute long songs about the venues they had been to. They’re so weird. When they came out for their second set they played just about all the songs I wanted to hear: Sun Song, Dr Worm, Particle Man, Birdhouse in your Soul. They even did Fingertips, the weird mishmash of couple second song blips at the end of Apollo 18. The only song they didn’t play that I wanted to hear was Ana Ng.

Their encore was really short. I don’t even remember what they played.
