They Might Be Giants
  • They Might Be Giants
Last January, I hipped you to the fact that Brooklyn’s long-running, whimsical alt-rock duo They Might Be Giants has released a long-awaited new album, I Like Fun. Now I’m back to tell you the twosome is appearing live in our area in support of the disc—at Daryl’s House Club on December 30.

Launched in 1983 by singer and accordionist John Linnell (a Capital Region resident) and singer and guitarist John Flansburgh, TMBG signed to Elektra Records for 1990’s breakthrough, Flood. Recorded in the same studio where that gold-selling set was made, I Like Fun, the act's 20th album, leavens the pair’s patented cheeky humor with dark themes: See the moribund “Last Wave” or the timely “An Insult to Fact Checkers.”

Listen to “The Communists Have the Music”:

They Might Be Giants will perform at Daryl’s House Club in Pawling, New York, on December 30 at 8pm. Tickets are $35. For more information, call (845) 289-0185 or visit https://www.darylshouseclub.com/.
