From This Might Be A Wiki
TMBG news: Los Angeles tomorrow night! is totally revamped and awaits your perusal!

Flansburgh here- Sure, you're an adult and you enjoy TMBG. We know you find "No!" interesting enough, but you need a new set of songs for grown ups! That's why we've release this new set of rarities, "They Got Lost." It is ONLY available via mail order and at our shows. We have a set of excellent bundles if you want to add some value to your mail order, or we invite you to one of our many upcoming shows. The "Lost Bundle" includes the disc and your choice of ANY t-shirt (including our many new designs and our special 20th Anniversary reissues) or the "Really Lost Bundle" which includes the "They Got Lost" disc, any t-shirt and your choice of "Mink Car" or our brand new enhanced disc "No!" Just tell us the shirt and size you want in the Comments section of the order form. Our t-shirt manufacturing has finally caught up to the insane number of orders that arrived with the release of "No!" so fulfillment should be prompt and easy. This offer will be available for most of the summer.

We also want to thank all the people who have taken part in the new TMBG chat room at Obviously if others want to start addition chats on other nights besides Tuesday, that is totally up to y'all.
