"Dear Sir and/or Madam,
What an amazing weekend! Thanks so much to all for coming out to our
victorious and enormous NYC show. The roar of greasepaint. The smell
of the horns. It was magnificent, and truly a thrill to return to the
historic Beacon Theater. And congratulations to the New York Giants
for their stunning Super Bowl victory. We always feel good about
anything New York and Giants winning, and when it's both it combines
both! (even if they beat the Pats! Wait til '09!)
For all you non-NYC folk, we're happy to report there is yet another
brand-new audio podcast launching later today at phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=105708952
and it features selections from TMBG's first demo! Yes - their 1983
demo. We think you'll want to check it out.
On a more personal note, everyone here in TMBGland is happy to report
there is a new member of the Beller crew in the world. His name is
Noah and he is a healthy baby boy. Hence, Marty will not be on the
next leg of the tour as his parental duties have to take priority.
The very capable Frank Vilardi will be jumping onto the drum stool
for the March leg, and we are looking forward to working with him
again as he is, like Marty, a monster player. Marty will be returning
to the drum throne to dazzle us all with his notorious
performance of Alphabet Lost and Found at the very special show for
kids in Atlanta.
John Flansburgh, age 47"
