Hello everyone!

We know this sounds like an April Fools joke but it's not. They Might Be Giants are having a BIG AND SMALL T-SHIRT SALE where all the shirts that are going out of print, often with just small and XL and above remaining, are at a special reduced price. Prices begin at $6. To sweeten the deal, it's 20% off for the next 36 hours or so if you enter the code APRIL2. 

This sale won't last and quantities are extremely limited, so if any of these designs are of interest you know what to do. 

Get in on this!


                           WHAT WAS THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS' MARCH LIKE?

It was, like, a LOT. Much travel, many gigs, some fun and a bit of stress, and finally the touring ends. 

We finished our Australian tours with some amazing shows. On our final night in Adelaide, at the Adelaide Festival (abbrev. AF), Mark Pender dazzled all with his mighty and majestic horn and even ventured into the audience for some extraordinary crowd work. 

Then many in the band were off to the JoCo cruise to the Caribbean. 

After a few days of pina coladas and getting sunburn on our knees on beautiful beaches with the bluest water imaginable, we met up with with John L. and Pender in San Juan for the big “on land” show. As it was officially the dry season, there was no formal rain plan, yet the rain came and demolished the set up, drenched everyone and by 9 o'clock killed our plans to play. After some last minute scrambling, we embarked on moving the show to the main stage of the ship (involving figuring out customs for band, crew, and gear and essentially spontaneously sound checking and playing to get our show up and over by midnight when the ship had to pull out of port or suffer a strict $50k government fine from the Puerto Rican government loomed). We high-tailed it back to boat with just guitars and accordion, and some fresh drumsticks for Marty. The amazing house crew had spontaneously set up the theater's backline across the whole stage in the minutes after getting word of the new plan. It was rough and tumble but it was a show none of us will ever forget.




There are a lot of email services

who will answer in the affirmative,
but they really don’t care.
They all kid on the square.

Only Mail Chimp is superlative.
