TMBG Shirt #18: They Might Be Giants

Welcome to a special video edition of TMBG Shirt of the Week. I first laid eyes on this week's entry behind the merch table at a late nineties show at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City. The most plain TMBG shirt I had ever seen, it was simply the band name in white block letters on a black shirt. When I inquired about it, I was told that some of them were recently unearthed in their warehouse, and that it's the first shirt that the band ever produced. Sold!

Here's a short fan video that I shot last week for a special They Might Be Giants Awareness Day project conceived by my friend Kelly, in which I'm wearing the debut shirt. She produced a string of clips submitted by various fans, and it was subsequently posted on TMBG's own Facebook page. You can watch the full fan video here.

Here's a sequel video that I just shot for this entry, in which I'm wearing an alternate gray version of this week's shirt. As in the video, I'd like to remind you that the Join Us Preview EP is now available for purchase on, iTunes and And if you order from the official band site, you can get the newest TMBG t-shirt, with the Join Us cover art. Like I always say, you can never have too many of those.
MP3 of the Week:
