TMBG GO HIGHBROW, AND UPTOWN WITH A SHOW AT LINCOLN CENTER
All the fanciest seats are gone, but all of them are all close and very comfortable...
You are most cordially invited to see They Might be Giants Vs. McSweeney's at Lincoln Center. This show is part of the ongoing American Songbook series and is a benefit for NYC826. All artist proceeds will go directly to 826NYC, a drop-in tutoring center in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
The show itself will be at the brand new and shockingly beautiful Allen Room. TMBG will be performing a set of Venue Songs with a slide show accompaniment. The band will also back up the author and co-host Dave Eggers (A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius), and author and "This American Life" contributor Sarah Vowell in some special readings. Daily Show producer (and best selling co-author of "America") Ben Karlin will be reading an original essay as well. The Juilliard Community Choir will make a special guest appearance. This is going to be a very special event. Please come! Wednesday, March 2, 8:30pm, The Allen Room, Lincoln Center

FREEDOM IS QUIETLY DISAPPEARING...
On the topic of Venue Songs there are two announcements-
First, the special giveaway of the Venue Songs set is about to end at theymightbegiants.com, so get your orders in now and enjoy this amazing offer. The tracks will be available, perhaps even in CD form, but we will have to charge for them the old fashioned way.
...BUT THERE ARE MOMENTS OF GRACE.
Right now at tmbg.com two new tracks are posted for free. The songs "Brooklyn" and "Dallas" are up at the usual place, www.tmbg.com/freeTunes.html. The user ID is tmbg and the password is thespinesurfs. Please spread the good word, but we do ask for an email address in exchange so that we might spread the good word of TMBG directly. We try very hard not to overstay our welcome in anyone's inbox.
AMAZON NOW TAKING PRE-ORDERS FOR HERE COME THE ABCs
TMBG return to the kid stuff with this brand new DVD and CD set. Original animations, puppets and performance on the DVD makes it a really excellent experience, and easily the best gift anyone could ever get. No one can beat Amazon's prices (we suspect they actually take a loss on some things). The DVD is just 9 bucks (!?!) so we invite you to get in on their madness....
