Jonathan Coulton could have been genetically engineered as the perfect TMBG support act - hard rocking with a geek-twist crowned by his most well known song.

As for They Might Be Giants - we had old songs (Birdhouse in Your Soul, Ana Ng, The Guitar), new songs (Can't Keep Johnny Down, When Will You Die?, Cloisonné), simple songs (Older), impossible songs (Fingertips), songs we knew well (Istanbul (not Constantinople)) and songs we didn't (The Mesopotamians, Withered Hope).  It was all very entertaining and satisfactory.

Today's job was explaining to the kids why "Adults Only" and "Free Tickets" are good enough explanations for why we went without them.
