Make A Little Birdhouse in Your Soul
Topic: Music

They Might Be Giants are touring again.  After washing up after the "starship p0rn" earlier today, I meet Matt and Diana for dinner and drinks at Tommy's, then Diana drops us at the Fillmore.

Unlike last time I saw them, tonight they played some of their best known songs, hitting Anna Ng as the second number, later playing Birdhouse In Your Soul, and ending their second encore with their cover (better known than the original) of Istanbul (Not Constantinople).

I love this band. They're geeky as all get out, but they're clever songwriters. And the great thing about their songs, they're all short, so even if you're hearing one that you don't love, it's over in 2 or 3 minutes and you're on to the next thing.
