Screaming Into The Abyss

Might They Be Giants?

They Might Be GiantsWhen They Might Be Giants had their first show, they didn't really think their name might be considered arrogant or even that it might be applied to them. 26 years and 4 million record sales later, I don't think they could ever really have been called "giants" but they've done a respectable job for a couple guys named Jon who play accordion. The cult of TMBG continues on in many forms.

Tomorrow night, they'll be performing a live show at First Avenue in downtown Minneapolis with Moon Maan. It's really hard to tell if it's too late to get tickets but if you're a fan and want to see them rock out live, that's the route I'd take if I were you, which I'm not. Obviously.

If you have kids and can't get a sitter for a Friday night, then I've got a bit of trivia you won't get from Ticketmaster. Head to Highland Lake Park in Bloomington for a free show at Target Children's Book Festival. It should be much more kid-friendly than a black-painted, dimly lit, loud nightclub with a very high bar-to-audience ratio.

I plan on having a post with photos from the First Ave show early next week.
