They Might Be Giants

On Saturday night I went to see They Might Be Giants perform live at The Pageant. The show (my 4th) was absolutely awesome. The setlist (available at This Might Be A Wiki) naturally included a large selection of songs (9 in all) from their new album, The Else, but it also included 4 fan favorites from Flood, and 2 each from Apollo 18 and The Spine. Particular highlights included…

  • Opening with “I’m Impressed”
  • “The Shadow Government”
  • “The Cap’m”
  • “Spider”
  • “The Guitar”
  • “Birdhouse In Your Soul”
  • “Particle Man”
  • “Istanbul (Not Constantinople)” with an amazing opening guitar solo
  • “Damn Good Times” as the final song

Even the opening band, Oppenheimer was good. Their music was enjoyable, and they did a really good job warming up the crowd.

Oh, lastly, I wore my <GEEK> shirt from ThinkGeek and got two compliments… albeit from other guys.
