They Might Be Giants
Town Hall in New York, NY
December 13, 1998 at 2:00 PM

Fan Recaps and Comments:

The first of two live tapings for the public radio show This American Life (the second was at 6 pm). The tapings were used for the episode "What You Lookin' At?" broadcast on Dec. 18, 1998.

The website for This American Life announced, "In New York we'll be at Town Hall in Manhattan (123 W. 43rd) December 13th; the show's at 2 p.m. Tickets are $35 and $30."

Host Ira Glass introduced the musicians as "They Might Be Giants and the This American Life Orchestra," crediting John Linnell, John Flansburgh, Dan Miller, Dan Hickey, Dan Levine, Danny Weinkauf, and Jim O'Connor.

Songs were performed as interstitials between the spoken-word segments. The band also contributed incidental music throughout, such as a snippet of the Roy Acuff song "Wreck on the Highway" during Sarah Vowell's segment.
