They Might Be Giants released the dazzling album and coffee table art book project, BOOK, last Fall. And now they are finally hitting the road for an oft-delayed tour, rescheduled due to pandemic lockdowns.
Many dates on the tour are sold out, including three DC dates — at 9:30 Club on Thursday, June 9, and at the Lincoln Theatre on Friday, June 10, and Saturday, June 11. For those of us attending, these are sure to be shows to remember!
Two-time Grammy winners, BOOK finds TMBG expanding their own worldview through multiple mediums while continuing to refine their songwriting craft. The album is packed with the band’s signature vocal harmonies, dazzling guitar rock antics, and deceivingly dark lyrics. Garnering acclaim from fans and media alike, it debuted at No. 1 Current Alternative Albums, No. 1 Current Rock Albums, and No. 88 Billboard 200 charts — combining 1st-week sales with over 10,000 pre-sales!

They Might Be Giants started with a Dial-A-Song service, powered by a lone phone machine out of their Brooklyn apartments. Since then, they have made 23 albums, and have secretly infiltrated your TV with original themes and incidental music to numerous shows and commercials. Fans can enjoy They Might Be Giants’ FREE Dial-A-Song smartphone app (iPhone / Android) which adds a new song every day.
The DC-area shows are sold out!
