- From TMBG.com:
Columbia celebrates the fantastic Blue Note club, a venue that TMBG visited very early on in their touring career, and where on separate occasions both Linnell and Flansburgh have performed with the flu. Back in the asymmetrical nu-wave hairdo days of the 80s, it is where a young AJ Schnack, director of Gigantic, first encountered TMBG, and it has been host to countless musical legends over the past 20 years. The stage is 22 feet wide and 16 feet deep, making it about normal for a small theater stage.
