They Might Be Giants played to a packed audience at the Pageant Friday night, marking the recent release of "Nanobots." It's been a long time since I've had so much fun at a show -- probably the last time I saw them play the Pageant.

Openers Moon Hooch are a trio consisting of two saxophone players and a drummer. They categorize their sound as cave music, and I really wish I could describe it, but you'll have to hear it to understand. I was impressed enough to want to have more of a listen.

By the time They Might Be Giants took the stage, the crowd pushed forward and cheers went through the venue. Co-founders John Linnell and John Flansburgh perform live extremely well, keeping the show at a good pace, with lots of entertainment. The set list spanned their decades-long career and included lots of material off their latest release. Two encores were performed, and I was content with the night.
