This week at 10pm EST we are inviting everyone and especially all the new folk- all the people who just came into the TMBG orbit- to come on over to the chat and discuss their feelings on things giant and beyond.
SPECIAL McSWEENEY's SHOWS COMING in OCTOBER! There are currently shows planned in DC, Philadelphia, St. Paul MN and Chicago in a special night of music and spoken word in nicer venues than we usually play. Dave Eggers (author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius as well as editor of McSweeney's AND our New Yorker issue-mate) is hosting, and additional speakers will be signing on momentarily. We will probably be performing dates around those special shows with regular TMBG appearances in other cities to get us there and back with gas in the bus. Look to www.theymightbegiants.com for updates on appearances.
