After months of traveling the country on a national tour, 2009 Grammy Winners They Might Be Giants will play two benefit concerts at the New York Hall of Science on December 13. The two shows, at 1 and 3:15 pm, will feature TMBGÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s newest songs from their latest childrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s album Ã¢â‚¬Å“Here Comes Science,Ã¢â‚¬Â which examines a wide array of scientific ideas. Proceeds from the $35 concert tickets will be donated to NYSCI.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“They Might Be Giants is a great band that appeals to every generation and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re excited to share their smart and funny music with our audiences,Ã¢â‚¬Â said NYSCI Director and Chief Content Officer Eric Siegel who has a special connection to the project.
