Bio: They Might Be Giants

As They Might Be Giants' first Asbury Park show sold out instantly, the band will return for a second show by popular demand. To keep things spicy, TMBG will change the two-set "evening with" program a bit with a spotlight on both Flood and their notorious "lost" 2001 album Mink Car plus an alternate set of favorites to fully satisfy both regular and repeat customers.

THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS MINK CAR plus FLOOD SHOW CELEBRATION
The show is “an evening with” and TMBG will play two full sets with their electrifying live band featuring the trumpet genius Curt Ramm. The sets will span the band’s entire career from early favorites to brand new tracks, as well as the live improvisations that have become a highlight of TMBG shows.

PLUS the band will spotlight favorites from both their FLOOD and MINK CAR albums. Although they won't play both albums in their entirety, both established show favorites and some more rare tracks will be wheeled out for all to enjoy.

ABOUT FLOOD
They Might Be Giants’ major-label debut was one of the biggest surprises of the emerging alternative rock scene in 1990. Because of Flood, TMBG graduated from their home recording roots to a full studio setup and the band took full advantage of the sonic possibilities. With a wider palette of instrumentation, TMBG explored and continue to explore the possibilities of home-brewed sampling. The album also generated chart hits in the UK and took John & John across the world, touring in support of what would become a platinum-selling album.

ABOUT THE MINK CAR SHOWS
This Sept. 11 is the 19th anniversary of Mink Car, They Might Be Giants' notorious “lost” album. With tracks produced with Flood hitmakers Clive Langer & Alan Winstanley as well as Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne, the album was filled with stand-out tracks like Bangs, Cyclops Rock, Man It’s So Loud in Here, Older, She Thinks She’s Edith Head, and, of course, the title track Mink Car. But the brilliant reception the album seemed destined to have was not to be--Restless Records closed their doors for business forever just weeks after the release date and the album's rights were instantly entangled in that bankruptcy. Released just a year before the iPod and Napster musical revolutions and with the curious distinction of no physical albums in distribution, the album essentially disappeared. It would be the first and only They Might Be Giantsalbum to go out of print.
