Review: They Might Be Giants at Jiggle Jam
What an inconsiderate audience! They yelled. They cried. They whined. And that was just the adults.
As noted earlier this weekend at Back To Rockville, They Might Be Giants attract an unusually devoted audience.
The cult band's concert Saturday afternoon at children's music festival Jiggle Jam served as a rare instance of children enabling their parents. Kids clearly enjoyed They Might Be Giants, but most probably would have been just as entertained by Bongo Barry.
It's more than a little unsettling to watch adults sing along with "Alphabet of Nations" as if it's their personal version of "Born To Run" or "Highway To Hell."
Still, it was mad fun. By the time the band closed with "Dr. Worm", my face was sore from smiling.
