Gigantic grooves rock CSUS
support of their latest album "Mink Car," the engaging
alternative rock band They Might Be Giants will perform at
California State University, Sacramento at 7:30 p.m., Thursday,
Sept. 20 in the University Union Ballroom.
The band has a one-of-a-kind sound and is widely recognized
for their eclectic, entertaining live performances.
TMBG are John Linnell (accordion, keyboards, woodwinds, vocals)
and John Flansburgh (guitar, vocals). The instrumentation
of the band has been evolving since the release of the first
album back in 1986 and many different musicians have lent
their expertise to the band's live shows and recordings, but
the creative core has remained Linnell and Flansburgh.
The band has released more then 10 albums, including a children's
musical CD. The band's lyrics are unusual and incorporate
some very sophisticated allusions and imagery.
"We're doing something that is personal. We don't want
it to sound generic and so our music is defined by what we
like as opposed to what we think other people will like,"
Lindell said in a recent interview with Music Journalism,
an on-line magazine
TMBG's music has attracted an extremely diverse fan base ranging
from children to older adults. The group's popularity and
accessibility to fans has allowed them to build an extremely
loyal and active audience.
Tickets for the event are $15 general and $10 CSUS students.
