The Triffid hosts an evening with They Might Be Giants

“Blue Canary in the outlet by the light switch, who watches over you?”

“They Might Be Giants Brand New Album…..’Flood!'” might just be the soundtrack album to my last few years of High School. My friends and I knew all the words (still do!). So many years later I am delighted that my kids also now love listening to Birdhouse in Your Soul. (thank goodness, some of their other 6, 7 and 9year old’s music taste is…very…soul-less).

I was so excited to see them play on 13 February at The Triffid in Brisbane.

They only played 2 songs (devastated!) from Flood, but to be fair they have 20 albums  of irreverent songs (so, Flood….not so Brand New eh?!) so had to share the love. The crowd were all singing along to every song and the band were so interactive and having a great time.

If you are unfamiliar with Brooklyn’s quirky Ambassadors of Love you might want to listen to Flood here on Spotify
