They Might Be Giants w/Moon Hooch
Lightning 100 & Miller Made Music Presents
Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …
By tonight, it will all be over. Well, it won’t “all” be over — the chances of the universe suddenly contracting back to a pre-Big Bang state of existence (or nonexistence, if you think about it) is pretty slim. But the 24-hour binge we were planning between the release of the Johns’ latest LP Nanobots and their appearance at Cannery will be over. Usually, we like to let an album marinate between purchase and catching a performance, but it looks like it’s not going to happen this time — so 24 hours of They Might Be Giants it is! This is not entirely different from any other 24 hours in the past, oh, three decades of our lives except that we’ll be swapping our extra-worn-copies of Lincoln and Apollo 18 for a fresh copy of Nanobots. Also, our better half won’t be giving us the hairy eyeball for chugging beers and listening to children’s records like the classic Here Comes the ABCs. It’s not that the better half doesn’t like children’s records or beer, but the combo of the two makes the better half a little skittish.
