So h has agreed to go to see They Might Be Giants with me at the 9:30 club in here in Washington D.C. on Nov. 23rd. This will make the 2nd time this year that I've seen TMBG, the first being at Starr Hill Music Hall in Charlottesville VA. I saw them last year with Ryan, Ken, & Neil at the Orange Peel in Asheville N.C.
Needless to say, I'm a huge fan. Ryan got me hooked on them some years ago and over time my appreciation for their music has grown and grown. I am in love with their new album, "The Else"which has so many good songs on it that I can't emphasize enough that you should go and buy it. What prompted me to blog about this was the fact that I bought those tickets yesterday & saw the following post over on Laughing Squid today:
“The Mesopotamians” is the latest animated music video by They Might Be Giants, from their album “The Else”. The video was directed by David Cowles and animated by Chris Timmons. Another great musical history lesson from TMBG.David Cowles has also designed a cool new t-shirt for “The Mesopotamians” to go along with the video.Here’s TMBG performing “The Mesopotamians” on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on October 13th.
