Paul and I saw two great TMBG shows the day before Halloween, and we dressed up as Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo from one of our favorite films, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. The shows were at the Quick Center for the Arts in Fairfield, CT and were joined by Curt Ramm and Stan Harrison, but Dan Miller was absent from the late show. During the early show, the Johns commented on the crushing weight of their latest Grammy Award (above). Nobody in the band dressed up, except for Marty Beller who went as a Drum Cymbal. There were also a few other costumed audience members, including a Freddy Krueger.
A Song For You:
Per request, here's a "cover" of a classic tune that John Linnell busts out with while John Flansburgh conducts the standard improvised cacophony of musical noise that occupies the final section of "Spy". This happened at a show in Bielefeld, Germany on 4/22/92.
