Hometown favorites They Might Be Giants are getting the New York media blitz with the opening of Gigantic, a documentary about them and their rise to nerd-rock fame, coming this Friday. The Post mentions how they will be celebrating the opening of the film at the Bowery Ballroom on Thursday (sold out - sorry). The Daily News gives New York an idea of who they are.

However, Gothamist has its own They Might Be Giants expert in Jake. Check out his experiences first hearing TBMG, at their concerts and on making the best TBMG mix ever. We know where he will be when Gigantic opens.
