If you are in the DC area on Nov. 26th and have a thing for band who have released 10 or more albums and goofy, intelligent lyrics, may I recommend They Might Be Giants. I have been a fan of theirs for a long time and one of biggest regrets was not seeing them when they played a free concert on the steps of the then under construction Portrait Gallery. Now I have a change to pay them and see them in concert.
I recommend their new album Join Us, it has the sound we all have come to know and love. I also hope they play new album and older stuff because I don’t really want to go to a kids concert, but I think they will know their crowd. I know this concert will be a lot better than the most recent concert I went to at the 930 club, Robert Randolph. He is a great performer, I just had no idea it was a jam band. I was expecting this awesome soul and r and b, but it was jamming for 15-20 minutes at a time. Groovy.
They Might Be Giants are much more my speed, in Fact, I would say they are one of the most influential bands for me in my writing. Which if you would like to check out is in an earlier post under the category My Music.
