They Might Be Giants, The Story of My Life, The Love Language, and More
They Might Be Giants
They Might Be Giants have been making off-kilter alternative rock since before that particular term/genre had ever been coined. Friends & musical partners John Linnell and John Flansburgh began as a duo in Brooklyn, New York back in 1982. They were staples on the Lower East Side club scene, and by 1986 they released their first record, featuring the song "Don’t Lets Start", which we sample from in today's show.
The Story of My Life shares the lives of six adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities: Greg Silvernail, James Loudermilk, John Linville, Cecelia Henry, Karen Lash and Ghree Lockard. Their stories are told through photographs, spoken and written word, and visual art that they created in collaboration with instructors from the Sawtooth School for Visual Art. The multi-media exhibition at the Eleanor and Egbert Davis Gallery in Sawtooth opens Friday, October 11th at 5:30 pm with a nice reception. It’ll remain on display through November 14th at the Sawtooth School in Winston-Salem.
