They Might Be Giants

After releasing their popular children's music album "Here Come The 123s" and a spot on the Disney Music Block Party Tour this summer, They Might Be Giants are ready to get back into the world of adult music.

The band is set to play a series of shows on the last Saturday of EVERY month at NYC's (le) Poisson Rouge now through November and again in January. Kicking off this Saturday 9/27, the shows will feature songs off of all of TMBG's albums and each show will be entirely unique. Leave the kiddies at home and don't miss the chance to see TMBG's churn out the classics - both new and old.

My 16 year-old son is TMBG's biggest fan and has probably gotten laid more than any 3 of you.

----How crazy is Brooklyn for Barack? Even people who want to give $1,000 to the candidate can’t get into a hot fundraiser on Monday — it’s already packed with people giving the maximum.

So don’t bother heading to Bubby’s in DUMBO for the “Bridge to Somewhere: A Brooklyn Evening for Barack Obama” event on Monday night, said David Shenk, an author and organizer of the event.

“All 350 tickets are sold — and that’s the most the room can hold,” said Shenk, a Park Sloper.

Too bad, as Brooklyn’s own They Might Be Giants will be performing and comic Andy Borowitz will be cracking wise.
