The origin of accordion love?

They Might Be Giants in concert

Over the weekend I got to see my most favoritest band perform in Burlington, VT – They Might Be Giants. I have loved them forever (well, since 1988 anyway).

I started thinking about the connection between my affinity for accordion books and the fact that one of the TMBG band members plays an accordion.

Accordion Book

Perhaps the band had some magical influence on my journey into book arts?

You could be onto something here. I love They Might Be Giants and accordion books too. And does Weird Al figure in here somewhere?

Hmmm…very interesting. I also like Weird Al – hello My Bologna!

I’m jealous! I saw them play with Fishbone in 1986-7(ish)as a teenager in NYC, but not since then. I’m sure they have ALL kinds of magical influence 🙂

I saw them in the mid-90’s with Fishbone as well. They played at Tufts University and they also had Queen Latifah on the bill. I paid just $5.00 for those awesome acts – such a great show!

I’ve been a member of their Instant Fan Club for the past couple of years. Yes, I’m a total fan geek.


So what do you think? I'd love to know!
