They Might Be Giants

They Might Be Giants

I’m going to go out on a limb and estimate that the average age of concert-goers at the free They Might Be Giants concert at Prospect Park last Saturday afternoon was 8.3. That does not include babes in utero, which, I assure you, were not a few.
We all had a great time. Simon didn’t necessarily know what was going on and wanted to go home before they’d even sung “Istanbul (Not Constantinople)” (imagine!), but he sure liked dancing with us and especially the confetti cannon that went off every now and then.
And now I’m all pumped to get some more of their music playing around the clock at our place so that Simon can get it into his head that “No!” means no. And also so that I can feel like a hip mom who has hip music playing while still being sensitive to the intellectual development of her children. Or something like that. Because that is how you feel when you are rocking out to songs about 7 and the Vowel Family all day long.

  1. Fun! We especially like rocking out to their songs about conifers and never going to work.

  2. Have you seen the "For the Kids" albums? They are awesome. A bunch of popular artists got together to sing traditional kids songs (like "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star") and some new songs too. It's helped me ease into more kid's songs.

  3. I love free concerts in the park, how fun! We got to see the opera couple last summer, it was totally awesome. I bet TMBG was super fun!

  4. I love that last picture of Simon and Micah. How fun! Jarom got Jon and me tickets to see the Fray and Jack's Mannequin this Saturday. Should be fun!
