They Might Be Giants
What have they been doing since the days of my mystery trip? Recording theme songs and incidental music for Malcolm in the Middle, Austin Powers 2, and All Things Considered; recording children's music; touring where and when they want to; and maintaining relationships with their legions of fans through such direct-entry musical experiences as their popular Dial-a-Song service (718-387-6962; I just called and it was busy) or www.dialasong.com (which I'm listening to right now and is really fun). Oh, and making plans to play at the Ann Arbor Summer Festival on Saturday, July 3, at the Power Center.
