They Might Be Giants Rock Out For Pedestrian City Tours

Yesterday, alternative band They Might Be Giants took to the stage at Arlington, Massachusetts’ Regent Theatre for two sold-out shows to benefit Boston By Foot.

It’s not every day that these nerd-rockers-come-kiddie-faves perform in the Beantown suburbs, but the beneficiary is close to the band’s heart – TMBG’s John Flansburgh’s mother, Polly, is the founder of Boston By Foot, a non-profit organization that provides thematic walking tours of Boston. All concertgoers were asked to keep their ticket stubs – these ripped papers will be redeemable for a future admission to a Boston By Foot tour.

These two family-friendly shows featured songs primarily from the band’s latest release, “Here Comes Science.” Kids and their ‘rents learned about the periodic table (“Meet The Elements”), prehistoric life (“I Am A Paleontologist”) and incandescent gas (“Why Does The Sun Shine?”), among other scientific subjects.  Diehard TMBG fans weren’t completely lost in kiddie fare, however: the two Johns and company played a few of their classics, including “Particle Man” and “Istanbul (Not Constantinople).”

Regretfully, the band did not perform “Electric Car,” the most earth-friendly song off of “Here Comes Science” – most likely because vocalist Robin Goldwasser (Flansburgh’s wife) was not with the band. But here’s the video of the song to keep TMBG’s green vibe alive:
