They Might Be Giant have made a good living over the last decade by playing to toddlers. Kiddie music made a lot of sense for a band so big into storytelling, quirk, toy instruments and punchlines. Judging by the 9pm start time, this gig looks to draw in the parents who grew up wearing out their Flood cassettes. Recent records like Nanobots and Join Us hit the same peaks as their early '90s salad days and went underappreciated. Even when dealing with adult themes, the geek pop band still tickles the brainy adolescent in all of us. This concert is the rare 14 and older show.
