THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS & Les Chauds Lapins
Alternative rock legends and Grammy winners They Might Be Giants return to the stage with their five piece band to celebrate the release of their new album "The Else" produced by the Dust Brothers and Pat Dillett.
Formed as a duo in 1982, They Might Be Giants has had a singular career. Their Dial-A-Song service predated much of today's DIY internet activity. The band enjoyed an amazing run of breakthrough videos on MTV in the late 80s and early 90s. Their album "Flood" went platinum. The band expanded to a more tradiional line-up, and developed a reputation as a "must see" live show. In the late 90s the band began expanding their horizons into television, movies, and the internet, notably contributing the opening theme to "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me," "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and the Grammy winning song "Boss of Me" for "Malcom in the Middle."
Last year TMBG launched their free monthly podcast which has turned into an underground national favorite, routinely popping into the top ten on iTunes music podcast chart (one of the few non-broadcast related efforts to do so), with hundreds of thousands of subscribers participating. The band has also collaborated with the beloved homestarrunner.com web site.
