Flansburgh reports from Houston: "Hello friends. Just got through the big party weekend in Austin and Dallas. Excellent sing-along crowds, more barbecue than humanly possible, and big good times with our bandmates and compadres. Very psyched at the superpositive audience response to The Spine. Glad everybody's gotten on board with the tracks. It's cool to have such a different show for this tour. Want to remind everybody that theymightbegiants.com now features a download site with both The Spine and The Spine Surfs Alone available on the practical and beloved MP3 format. We are also including selected live shows (and I have to note the surprising sonic quality of these recordings. The engineers have really captured the feel of the show, and not just what's coming over the P.A.). We will have a Best Of The Tour compiled in the beginning of August if you're waiting for a more definitive document of "The Spine Hits The Highway" Summer 2004 Tour.
"We are returning to Brooklyn for the big Celebrate Brooklyn show at 7 pm on July 30. Opening will be our good friend Corn Mo, who has been performing with us on Particle Man the past few nights- very exciting to see two accordions live on stage. We'll be performing on Conan August 9, and it airs on August 12, so set your Tivo. Till then, we'll be rockin out in the south. Check out the list below for all the venues.
"Just a few more days remain for the fresh new crop of free MP3s at tmbg.com! Direct from the stage of the Blue Note in Columbia, MO, comes our new song "The Blue Note," part of our effort to write an original song for the beginning of every show (!). Also going away in the next couple of days are exciting renditions of The Spine's "Bastard Wants To Hit Me" and the very screamy "Twistin", all recorded at the Blue Note. There is a new password but fear not if you've already signed up for this service- repeated email addresses are automatically dropped from the email list.
See you on the tour! Check out the dates below."
