"The Gate Rocks Again" by David Hinckley
Daily News, Sept. 15, 1987:

For the first time since the Ramones/Patti Smith shows of 1976, rock 'n' roll is coming back to the Village Gate. For the next four Friday nights, the folky, quirky and often downright intriguing band They Might Be Giants will be headlining 9.p.m. and 1.a.m. shows. There will be a different opening act each week, beginning with the Ordinaires this week and continuing with Fred Frith next week. They Might Be Giants has been a favorite of K-Rock DJ Vin Scelsa for some time, and their song "Don't Let's Start" was second behind U2 for a while earlier this year on WLIR. They Might Be Giants also is noted for starting one of the country's first rock band Dial-A-Song services, at 718-387-6962. Calls have been recorded from as far away as Japan. Which is pretty far away
