One of the most anticipated free concerts on the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage is happening this weekend. They Might Be Giants is playing an all-ages show on Saturday, October 2. And if you’re thinking it’s odd that one of our generation’s bands is performing for kids, too, then you need to brush up on your children’s music. TMBG are award-winning artists–in the kids’ music genre; in 2009 they won a Grammy for Best Children’s Album for a project called “Here Come the 123s.” They play family shows all over the country.
The band has said the set list will cover their entire repertoire. And given that TMBG’s fun, alternative sound spans the generations, I think it’s safe to say that all kids, young and old, will have a blast.
So, here’s the 411 on the show: TMBG takes the stage at 6pm sharp. Tickets are free, and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Capacity is 4,000, and I predict they will max it out, so you probably want to get there early. It’s been recommended that folks with very young kids hang back from the dancing crowd.
