A MINK CAR THEMED SHOW in NEW YORK CITY
THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS PRESENT
THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY FLOOD SHOW
In honor of the album that made them an international act, They Might Be Giants is celebrating Flood’s 30th anniversary in 2020 by performing the album, in its entirety, on stages in select cities across the US. The show is “an evening with” and TMBG will play two full sets with their electrifying live band featuring the trumpet genius Curt Ramm. The sets will span the band’s entire career from early favorites to brand new tracks, as well as the live improvisations that have become a highlight of TMBG shows, and somewhere in there will be FLOOD. All 19 songs! Will they be in sequence, reverse sequence, alphabetical order, or mixed into additional repertoire? It’ll be different every night!
They Might Be Giants’ major label debut was one of the biggest surprises of the emerging alternative rock scene in 1990. Because of Flood, TMBG graduated from their home recording roots to a full studio setup and the band took full advantage of the sonic possibilities. With a wider palette of instrumentation, TMBG explored and continue to explore the possibilities of home-brewed sampling. The album also generated chart hits in the UK and took John & John across the world, touring in support of what would become a platinum-selling album.
