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!
The Wreckers Biography
The Wreckers are a Grammy nominated country duo formed in 2004 by singer-songwriters Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp. The Wreckers were formed when Michelle Branch recruited her longtime friend and backing vocalist Jessica Harp - who, at the time, was en route to signing a record deal of her own - on a new musical venture, incorporating elements from both Branch's pop-rock style and Harp's classical style to form a unique-sounding amalgamation. Thus, The Wreckers (a shortened form of the second band name given to the girls by Michelle's husband Teddy Landau, "The Cass County Homewreckers") were formed, and signed to Maverick Records. Soon, their song "The Good Kind" - originally recorded solely by Harp - was featured on the hit teen soap opera One Tree Hill. They performed this song on the show on February 8, 2005. Later that month, the duo embarked on the month-long, nation-wide One Tree Hill - The Wreckers Concert Tour alongside Gavin DeGraw, Tyler Hilton, and Bethany Joy Lenz. Branch later expressed her dislike of going on tour without releasing an album first, and The Wreckers then attempted to release their debut album, Stand Still, Look Pretty. However, the album faced several delays.

The Wreckers Bio Continued
On December 4, 2005, Branch closed down The Wreckers' message board, saying that she was fed up with fans' negativity. The message read as follows: "What I am most frustrated at, I suppose, is ... I pay money to keep this website up so all of you "fans" can talk about our music. Why would I want to spend the money so the majority of you can sit around and bitch about us?"
