Event Review by Nirav Soni
Brand New and Thrice play the first of a pair of sold-out Orlando dates.
You can’t accuse They Might Be Giants of being slackers. After more than 15 years together, the already-prolific band is releasing a boatload of music, including work on Malcolm in the Middle and their first children’s album. Julio Diaz cornered John Flansburgh during a rare moment off, and got the latest on this extremely talented — and busy! — band.
