TMBG ring back tones
We at TMBG's home office were recently made aware of this unusual "Ring Back" offer from Verizon where you can download recordings by They Might Be Giants to play for your friends calling you on your cell phone. How you actually do this or how much it costs we can't tell you, but we endorse "Bells Are Ringing" as appropriate for such a specific function, and "Ant" just for the effect it is sure to have on the audience of one.
Go to ringbacktones.vzw.com and search for They Might Be Giants.
The debut of The Last Car
We also want to bring your attention to Robin "Goldie" Goldwasser's new music group The Last Car who are having their professional debut at Joe's Pub on Saturday Nov. 5th. The Last Car is a three person vocal harmony group performing haunted songs on a wide variety of topics including, but not limited to, fireflies, car crashes and the vagaries of romance. Band members include, but are not limited to, Chris Anderson (formerly of Muckafurguson), Robin "Goldie" Goldwasser and Amy Miles. Also on the bill is the excellent band Pinataland. We strongly recommend buying tickets at the box office 1-6 every day at 425 Lafayette Street, between East 4th & Astor. Telecharge is at 212-239-6200 or on the web at www.telecharge.com.
