They Might Be Giants | Williamsburg Waterfront | July 29, 2011
It's a little boggling how They Might Be Giants hadn't played a show at East River State Park until Friday night. The Brooklyn duo are the original Williamsburg hipsters, forging out the territory in the mid-80s long before the recent crop of indie rockers. The show last week marked the band reclaiming their proper spot in the hood as headliners at the outdoor location. Plenty of new material from Join Us was included in the set alongside old favorites like "Birdhouse in Your Soul," "Fingertips," "Don't Let's Start," and "Ana Ng." "Particle Man" was strangely absent, but two puppet avatars were on hand to sing "Spoiler Alert" (the first live performance according to the band). Photos from the set are below.
