They Might Be Giants @ Williamsburg Waterfront - July 29th, 2011

If there was any day for there to be an outdoor show in Brooklyn, Friday was not that day. At least for the first portion of the night. I unfortunately couldn't stick around for the entire show (and the pouring rain was a dealbreaker), but from everything I've heard, They Might Be Giants put on a great performance Friday night in front of tons of soaking wet fans. And my prediction was proven wrong that they would inevitably play "Put Your Hand Inside The Puppet Head" due to the fact that the video for that song was filmed at the exact location of the Williamsburg Waterfront. They did however play classics such as "Birdhouse In Your Soul" (their opening song), "Don't Let's Start" and "Ana Ng," before playing Apollo 18's "Fingertips" in its entirety as an encore. Plus a few songs from their recently released Join Us, which is available in stores and on Spotify now.

The opening portion of the show was comedian Eugene Mirman and "Pretty Good Friends," which included Jim Gaffigan, Kristen Schaal, Todd Barry and Patton Oswalt. If you're a fan of comedy, that's a great fucking lineup if there ever was one. Below, check out a full set of photos of all the comedians and They Might Be Giants, as well as TMBG's setlist...
