An Evening with They Might be Giants 

When: Tue., April 21, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $30
Though they had a couple of commercial radio hits in the ’90s, that’s not why the indie rock act They Might be Giants has survived for the past 30 years. They’ve survived because they’ve done things on their own terms. That DIY attitude was on full display two years ago when the band played the Beachland. During a two-hour performance, the band — singer-multi-instrumentalist John Linnell and singer-guitarist John Flansburgh plus three touring musicians — drew from a wide range of material that included both the obvious (1990’s “Birdhouse in Your Soul”) and the obscure (“Fingertips,” a 21-song suite of short songs from their 1992 album Apollo 18). Expect that to be the case tonight when the group returns to the Beachland for a sold out show. (Niesel)
