From This Might Be A Wiki
Starting right now Idlewild Recordings are proud to announce the very first official They Might Be Giants fan club--the Instant Fan Club. We hope you'll find this offer to join for the 2011 Season to be a real value. The package includes a couple of surprises that should delight even the most world-weary TMBG completist. The 2011 Season openings for the fan club are available to just one thousand individual members. It is a one-time cost of $79.99. Members will receive exclusive vinyl, downloads (in either mp3 or fancy FLAC format), show tickets and much more. There is even a special limited edition vinyl pressing of TMBGs new album Join Us available for pre-sale just to fan club members. Because there are some offerings for 2011 members that are time specific we hope you'll join the Instant Fan Club as soon as possible. Let's get to the good news: All They Might Be Giants Instant Fan Club members get:
The 2011 Instant Fan Club 7" vinyl EP of 4 songs, numbered, hand stamped and signed by John & John (These are totally exclusive recordings to be released in late summer of 2011) 2 tickets to a public performance by They Might Be Giants ANY TIME in the future (and at the performance of your choice, members will receive a special Instant Fan Club goodie bag of mystery swag) A hand-numbered official Instant Fan Club ID button arriving with the EP Downloads for Join Us advance tracks in April, and the full album in July Downloads of the full length live recording "Best of the Join Us Fall 2011 Tour" (this project will have a different title when it's done, but you get the idea.)
