Fan Recaps and Comments:

This show was part of a month-long series of Saturday shows at Manhattan's Pyramid Club in March of 1986. Tickets were $5 before 11:00pm and $10 after.

They Might Be Giants advertised this show by calling it "The Victory Show" in a letter they distributed telling fans to bring acoustic guitars for a group performance of Bob Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man". The letter also included sheet music with guitar chords for the song, so fans could learn it and prepare:


Well, it's been an awesome dream this past month at The Pyramid. In fact, we'd like to say it's been perfect. But it hasn't been perfect. One thing seems to have been missing these past four weeks, and that thing has been you performing "Mr. Tambourine Man" on an acoustic guitar with 5,000 other acoustic guitar players live on stage with us this coming Saturday night, March 29th at 11:00 PM.

Just bring your acoustic guitar to the door, it will serve as your comp. admission. No electrics, please. If you have any friends you'd like to bring as guests, that's fine, but they must bring acoustic guitars and be ready to play. So be who you are, and dress like a star, see you there.


In 2023 for We Started a Nightclub, Iris Rose of Watchface would recall the show:

They Might Be Giants once had the entire audience perform "Mr. Tambourine Man" on their guitars. That was the Night of a Thousand Guitars. Everybody brought a guitar. I had a little plastic guitar and James [Siena] had a ukelele. They sent everybody the chords to "Mr. Tambourine Man", and the big finale was a stage full of people all playing guitar.
