Photos: They Might Be Giants bring 27 songs to Slowdown

John Linnell and John Flansburgh led They Might Be Giants through songs ranging from its 1986 self-titled album to its 2013 release, “Nanobots.”

I don’t know that I’ve ever had more fun at a club show than the times I’ve seen They Might Be Giants.

On Wednesday at Slowdown, the Brooklyn band played “Istanbul (Not Constantinople)” and “Birdhouse in Your Soul,” of course, and also played “Put Your Hand in the Puppet Head,” “The Mesopotamians,” “The Guitar” and a bunch of songs from its new album, “Nanobots.”

We also got treated to an appearance of The Avatars of They, the group’s puppet duo, which sang “He’s Loco.”

It was a freaking blast, man. I was smiling and bouncing around the whole time. I even got myself a TMBG foam finger.

Read my full review over on and check out a slideshow of photos from Wednesday’s show below. What did you think of the concert?

Our slideshows don’t work on all phones and tablets. See the photos on my Flickr page.
