I am pretty jealous of the handful of A.V. Club staffers who got the chance to sit in on, and scream along with, They Might Be Giants. The band picked from a short list of songs for the Undercover series, choosing to perform “Tubthumping” the late-’90s anthem to…drinking? Getting back up? It is an amazingly positive vibe in that little round room, though, and this just seems like the most fun thing that anyone has done in a long time.
Relatedly, They Might Be Giants are playing the Williamsburg Waterfront on July 29, with comedy friends Eugene Mirman and Kristen Schaal. I know it would be asking too much for them to play everything off Flood plus this Chumbawama cover, but think of how amazing that would be!
