They Might Be Giants played free show this past Record Store Day, April 21st, 2012!
You may not know this, but independent record stores have a holiday all their own. The third Saturday of April every year is National Record Store Day! We've participated in every one since it began five years ago, and every year we've had a fantastic turnout. This past April, we were thrilled to have the Grammy-award winning band They Might Be Giants help us celebrate by performing a free concert in the nearby Princeton Public Library courtyard.
At this point, a very small percentage of you may be wondering, "wait, who are these guys?" I'm glad you asked - but the truth of the matter is you've probably heard them and just don't know it. Have you ever seen the intro to the hit TV show "Malcolm in the Middle"? That's them. Have you ever gotten "The Daily Show's" opening song stuck in your head? That's them, and we were honored that they chose our store as the place where they wanted to play.
We'd like to mention a special thanks to our friends at Princeton Public Library who graciously agreed to host the concert. (With all the merchandise we carry, we didn’t have the space!). The staff really went out of their way to pull this off.
The weather was great, the band was in fine form and the turnout was fantastic! Over 1,000 folks showed up, and the band spent hours at the store after at a meet-and-greet posing for photos and signing autographs. It was truly a memorable day.
In addition to TMBG, Record Store Day featured hundreds of limited edition vinyl records from the most talented musicians of our time. If you're interested in one of the limited edition releases at the next Record Store Day, we highly recommend you arrive early to maximize your chances of buying a copy. It's first come, first serve, so we look forward to seeing you bright and early!
Patty Griffin Biography
Patty Griffin, born March 16, 1964, is an American singer-songwriter from Old Town, Maine, next to the Penobscot Indian reservation. Two of her first four albums were unreleased by A&M Records. A&M Records signed Patty on the strength of her demo tape. Nile Rodgers produced her first studio album, which Patty felt was overproduced. That album was unreleased, and A&M instead released a stripped-down reworking of her demo tape, called Living with Ghosts.

Patty Griffin Bio Continued
1998's Flaming Red was a departure from the acoustic sound of Living with Ghosts, with a mix of quieter and flat-out rock and roll songs. The song "Tony" from this album is also featured on the charitable album Live in the X Lounge. The follow up Silver Bell had a similar sound, and was unreleased by A&M. Patty has rerecorded songs from that album for later releases (such as "Making Pies" from 1000 Kisses, and "Mother of God," "Standing," and "Top of the World" from Impossible Dream), and others have been covered by the Dixie Chicks. Copies of Silver Bell have leaked out, and can be acquired via the "B&P" (Blanks and Postage) method on message boards.
