Flansburgh reports: "TMBG will be performing Venue Songs with a yet-to-be-announced narrator at the fabulous Stone Pony - part of our psychic warm-up to the HFStival (where we are on the main stage in the early afternoon). We'll be sharing a stage with Billy Idol. Hopefully we'll be able to get his autograph.

Speaking of rock stars, my profile of Beck will be broadcast on Nightline on May 6, so check your local listings.

Rhino is releasing the single disc compilation A User's Guide To They Might Be Giants - kind of a simple reduction of Dial-A-Song - on May 3. It is a very interesting introduction to the band. If you were looking for a single disc to lay on the uninitiated, this might be the one. The liner notes, put together with our pal Barbara Glauber, are quite extensive. We've tried to compile all the songs and all the shows since the band's inception. Obviously this was a bit of a research nightmare (I'm not even sure if the show list includes in-stores!) but it is a very interesting object to look at, especially if you have good near-field vision."
