From This Might Be A Wiki

Fan Recaps and Comments:

Brian miller:

This show featured "The Tricerachops Horns," consisting of:
  • Trombone: Dan (The Machine) Levine
  • Saxophone: Stan Harrison ("Perhaps the Finest Saxophone Player in They Might Be Giants")
  • Trumpet: Kurt Ram (spelling?) (Newest and Youngest Member of the Band)
The HORNS were on stage for: Mr. Me, She's Actual Size, Withered Hope, Working Undercover For The Man, Metal Detector, In The Middle, Spy, Whistling In The Dark, bee Of The Bird Of The Mouth; Birdhouse In Your Soul; Museum Of Idiots, Ant, Doctor Worm; With The Dark, Istanbul (Not Constantinople).
Istanbul (Not Constantinople) featured a horn duel between trombone (representing townies and Jews in the audience) and saxophone (representing students in the audience). Also a trumpet solo later in the song.
TMBG, horns, great set-list, nice theater, good crowd. Great show!!!


Dug this show so much. Second TMBG concert - well worth it. I liked the improvement made to the Phone Calls from the Dead bit - the last time I'd seen it, I don't recall there being a musical intro (but there may have been, I'm bad at that sort of thing), and the little tiny projection screen on the otherwise large stage was cool, too; a great addition. Emily Dickinson (Flans off-stage) called the band and, after some pleasant chit-chat with Linnell ("You can tell you've been practicing, this show is much better than the last one"), she mentioned a new poem she had written, inspired by living under the cold ground.
"Hickory dickory dock.
The band ran up the clock.
They brought in some horns,
But still it was boring.
... f*** you guys."
The guys who run this wiki were pointed out by the band at one point, and jokes were made about how scary it is to have an incredibly detailed account of one's band available on the internet. Linnell mentioned that the best part would be reading about the part where they talked about the wiki. Hi, John!
Flans scolded us all for our free-for-all style street crossing. The intersection nearest the theater was the one in question: when the walk signal starts, dozens of pedestrians can be seen crossing at all times, sometimes even diagonally, through the center of the intersection itself. To reinforce proper street-crossing protocol, they performed In the Middle, In the Middle, In the Middle.
The opening band - Oppenheimer - was quite good. I hadn't ever heard of them, but so what, they were great. Couldn't wait in line for their album, so I'll have to find it elsewhere.
Dave! The band now can look at this page, and the self-referential set will spiral out of control, crash the internet, then eat all of space time until everything everywhere is crushed into a singularity. Nice job of predicting that, TMBG, even if you just destroyed the universe. *waves goodbye* --Christina 18:55, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

It was so great! This was my first TMBG concert (actually only my second concert ever) and i loved it. And I was sooo happy that Istanbul was played at the end. =]=]
My only criticism was the t-shirts sold at the end. I wish there was a bigger variety, and not quite so high a price!
And I was a little confused about the drunken man on the yellow one. =p
