They Might Be Giants Announce Spring Tour, Court the Young and Old

They Might Be Giants Announce Spring Tour, Court the Young and Old

I believe there’s a quote by Sir Abraham Vigoda that goes something like, “You can please some of the people some of the time, but you’ll look like a jerk if you try to please everyone.” Maybe my wording’s off a little, but whatever the specifics were, it’s obvious pop weirdos They Might Be Giants never heard that quote. For their winter tour, it seems near impossible to please both aging hipsters who fell in love with Lincoln years ago and little kids whose parents (who may just be those aforementioned hipsters) bought them the group’s ever-growing children’s discography, yet the legendary group has a plan: along with a handful of traditional adult shows, the band is splitting their time between performances of their 1990 classic Flood and of their children-oriented family shows. Depending on your choice of show, be prepared to endure either arguments on whether Lincoln or Flood is the better album (it’s Lincoln) or whether Mario or Sonic is the better video game hero (it’s Mario).
