— with The Cowpokes opening —
Idols in Rochester, NY
October 21, 1988 at 12:00 AM

Fan Recaps and Comments:

All-ages show, tickets were $8 for ages over 21, and $9 for those underage.

Preview of the show from Reporter, Oct. 21, 1988:

It's Friday night and you're saying, "What the heck am I going to do?" Well, as luck would have it, They Might Be Giants are in town tonight.

Appearing here last spring at Idols to a surprise sellout crowd, TMBG delighted all in attendance with their unusual subject matter, polka rhythms, accordions and general silliness. Known for hits like "She Was A Hotel Detective," "Kiss Me, Son Of God," and of course the mega-blockbuster, "Don't Let's Start," they have a new album out entitled Lincoln; the potential is there for several hits.

Opening the show for TMBG is Rochester's own Cowpokes. The Cowpokes have just finished recording their debut album on Circularphile Records, and it is due to be released at the end of November. The Cowpokes, with a multitude of influences, play somewhat atypical rock 'n' roll with a twist. The show starts at 11 p.m. with the Cowpokes, and then They Might Be Giants come on after midnight. The show is $8 for those over 21 years of age, and $9 for those underage. Idols is located at 88 Liberty Pole Way, downtown. So, if you have nothing to do tonight, grab some friends and go to Idols for They Might Be Giants and The Cowpokes.
