  • Venue song for the Avalon Ballroom, which closed down in late 2007.
  • This song was called "Improv Avalon Tune" at the theymightbegiants.com download store, however its proper title would most likely be "Boston", in keeping with official naming conventions.
  • Neither the physical nor digital releases of Venue Songs included this song. The only place where the whole song was available was at the theymightbegiants.com download store, where you could buy the whole show performed at the Avalon in Boston, MA. This show is no longer available.
  • A 1:05 "clip" of this song (which seems like a complete song in and of itself) is available here as a free MP3 sample at the theymightbegiants.com shows page.
  • The keyboard melody is the same as that of the Sesame Street theme song.
