For the next seven days, this very rare live duo show recorded at the Music Hall of Williamsburg is available to you for free.
Since They Might Be Giants has not been able to play shows for over a year and won’t be back on stages until 2022, right now seems like a perfect moment to check back in with a special live show from recent times.
Go to our new (very fresh and very fast) merch shop at www.tmbgshop.com and grab this singular recording for FREE! This recording will not be on streaming sites and returns to its normal download price in seven days!
For one brief shining moment on Saturday, November 29th, 2015, They Might Be Giants returned to their original format: a drum machine and synth bass tracked to a TEAC reel-to-reel tape recorder with a duo lineup of John L. on accordion and John F. on a Japanese telecaster (even taking care to bring back his original Fender Deluxe amp and minimal pedal complement). It was all Big 80s Systems at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn for that special set. Combining some early classics with recent numbers into a truly dynamic set of songs, these recordings are a unique glimpse of They Might Be Giants Version 1.0.
To top things off, the second set that night reintroduced They Might Be Giants' long-standing live lineup of the 21st century and, like John Henry of legend, they set out to prove that live humans will always eclipse the merciless, error-free efforts of machines. Who won? Only you can decide.
