They Might Have Eaten Hummus Before the Show but Instead I Snuck in Backstage and Ate the Entire Platter Before They Arrived Because I am Known as the Infamous Hummus Bandit.

Anyone that uses the word "relevant" as a criticism or even a descriptive for music, musicians or bands is, there's really no better terms for this - both an idiot and a douchebag.

Two things:

1. Flansburgh wore hipster glasses 20 years ago. Not sure whether they were "relevant" or not.

2. These photos are really outstanding.

Flansburg wore thick black rimmed glasses for many years, more nerd than hipster.

The old-hipster gear he has now is absolutely nothing like how he looked 20 years ago. Now he is in full midlife-crisis look.

Why is there a floor plan of T5 listed here? Was there something different for this show in relation to all the others that go on at this lovely venue?

These are really good photos, & make me happy even though I wasn't there. Love the crowd reaction shots as well as those of TMBG.

Posted by MB | March 19, 2012 5:01 PM

TMBG & TMBG fans are the biggest nerds in the game.

Payton Manning To Broncos

I'm posting this here because it's all but guaranteed to get zero reaction from TMBG fans (who are asking themselves now "what does that even mean, "to broncos"?)

6:25 can't figure out why the other barristas don't give him props for his Harvard B.A. in Medieval feminist studies (minor in linguistics).

Great photos, thank you for sharing. With my wife and daughter in the front row, I have the TMBG hat on. I am a USMC vet, you can try to take my lunch money.

The two "men" in the picture 8:34 posted have to have vaginas. Can you believe those two? It's like every crack on BV made about TMBG fans over the years, embodied in two gaping man pussies.

Posted by Anonymous | March 20, 2012 11:54 AM

What a shock. Faggots listen to TMBG you say?

"The two "men" in the picture 8:34 posted have to have vaginas"


The same could be said for the "men" that post hummus/sausage/Linsanity. I sense Rupaul's a little jealous even.

Umm... these guys moved to Williamsburg in 1984. They were there when the first hipster split into two even skinnier hipsters.
