The "Mystery and Strange Horror" of Trees

The 6-year-old who lives in my house is a big They Might Be Giants fan -- because, after all, they did teach him his ABC's and 123's, and they twosome are currently in the process of learnin' him about the science. The one TMBG product in which he's never shown much interest, though, is the band's collection of venue songs, which dates back to '04 and includes a brief art-rockin' ditty about a particular Deep Ellum venue of some note. In case you've never experienced said track and the accompanying video, introduced by the great John Hodgman, only today the band threw it up on its YouTube page. "Creepy and engimatic," indeed. Jump for it.
