Sock puppets? Check. Science-themed songs? Yep. Hilarious onstage banter? Oh yeah. Baritone sax? Check. Welcome to a They Might Be Giants show.
A haze descended over the audience as the lights rose over Yonder Mountain String Band on Friday evening at the Pageant. The night was filled with a groove that could be placed somewhere between the Grateful Dead and the classic bluegrass of Flatt and Scruggs, with country melodies and a musical muscle evident in jam-band circles. Dancers, drinks and bona-fide hippies took delight in all the sights and sounds.
