TMBG Shirt #17: TMBG Street Team

In honor of They Might Be Giants awareness day, I give you my coveted TMBG Street Team t-shirt. Actually, bad choice of words. You can't have it; this one's mine! The style of the text on this one completes the "baseball tee" look. I'm on the team!!
I received this shirt in 2004, during the height of the Street Team promotion. I volunteered to hand out some fliers to the folks lined up for a couple of TMBG shows at NYC's Irving Plaza. The flyers advertised for an off-broadway run of People Are Wrong!, just around the corner at the Vineyard Theatre. In addition to the shirt, I was awarded a free ticket to the play on the date of my choice. While I was busy with my assignment, I missed an appearance of comedian Mike Myers, who reportedly arrived early and was ushered inside. I later saw him enjoying the show from the balcony, and later still from backstage.

MP3 of the Week:
