These performances were culled from shows on They Might Be Giants' 2013 world tour.
John Flansburgh and John Linnell are joined by their stellar band — Dan Miller on the guitar,
Danny Weinkauf on bass, and Marty Beller on the drums. There is also a guest appearance by the Avatars of They.
They Might Be Giants' first album, or “pink album,” was a turning point for both the band
and for the burgeoning world of indie rock. Performing in downtown NYC clubs,
the band had become a fixture on the East Village scene where performance art and music
flowed together in a vivid late night club scene. In those earlier years, the band was

While the album's release in late 1986 was met with raves from critics (including the rare “A”
rating from the Village Voice’s Robert Christgau), with no major label push or immediate radio interest,
it seemed destined to settle comfortably into the Miscellaneous T section within a number of months.
All that would change quickly when the band collaborated with video director Adam Bernstein,
on a series of original clips that would get serious play on MTV….
