So one of my first concerts ever was They Might Be Giants. This was pre-blogging so I’m not sure when, I’ll venture 1986, touring in support of their eponymous album (which I hold dearly).

Always a pleasure to see R.Ring. This go ’round they were joined by cellist Lori Goldston and drummer Leo Deluca and it was good. Hankering for more. If I could be a groupie and follow them around I totally would, because they’re solid people to boot.

Unfortunately the latter set off fire alarms and everyone had to exit to the street while the fire department sorted things out. Cut to a chunk of time later, we were let back inside and the band hit the stage. […]
