(Maybe you installed it and after a while it got buggy –– well, all those system updates mess up our app. Just reinstall it and watch the issues disappear.)
Pre-orders of our new book+music project BOOK are on sale NOW and all pre-orders include TWO instant preview song downloads.
BOOK is a deluxe first edition book+download+CD set. Comprised of 15 new songs AND 144 full-color pages, BOOK is a remarkable album and art object. https://tmbgshop.com.
The project is a collaboration between They Might Be Giants, photographer Brian Karlsson, and designer Paul Sahre. These first editions of BOOK are cloth-bound, hard-covered, and 12" x 12" (that fits perfectly in any LP collection). The lyrics in the book are from the new album BOOK, I Like Fun, and My Murdered Remains, all set in layouts that might be best described as concrete poetry. Sahre actually typed up all the lyrics manually on an IBM Selectric typewriter from the early 1970s.
Order now and receive a download of two preview tracks instantly: I Broke My Own Rule and I Lost Thursday.
What are we going to do with all these stickers?
Hand them to you from the stage at one of our SOLD OUT FLOOD SHOWS!
FLOOD SHOWS ARE BACK IN 2022, AND BACK ON SALE
Now less than a dozen shows left with tickets available.
Just because some are a year away doesn’t mean they won’t sell out much sooner. As you can see from this ever-diminishing list LA, San Diego, Salt Lake City and the added 2nd Boston show have all sold out in just the last 4 weeks. While most of the remaining shows below are clearly selling out, some are moments away from "going clean." (Lincoln and Portsmouth, can you hear us?) We would definitely remind you that resellers charge a lot more than your local venue's box office (and often their tickets aren't even real) so the time to get your tickets is now.
Candidly, we are already on cloud nine that so many of these shows are already sold out, and happy to help keep so many independent music venues going at this most crucial moment.

Portsmouth NH https://bit.ly/3wTjF8Q

(*And a note for Ithaca concert goers –– as always, the remaining balcony seats can be exchanged for front row standing room spots simply by accessing the stairs as the show begins).
All these shows already SOLD OUT...

Philadelphia New York City x4 Burlington Northampton
Buffalo Pittsburgh x2 Cleveland x2 Chicago x4
Minneapolis St. Paul St. Louis Los Angeles Oakland

There is no cage that can hold them
And as they roam ‘cross the stage, we told some
“We all want to glimpse
a whole band of chimps
applying their rage to the bass drum”
