They Might Be Giants join children's tour

With three kids' albums under their belt, They Might Be Giants are no strangers to the younger crowd. Yet even though their first kids' album, No!, came out in 2002, most of the kids' shows they've performed have been either small scale bookstore shows or conveniently the same day and place as a later, grown-up concert. That seems like it's about to change as TMBG joins the Disney Music Block Party Tour this summer.

The tour brings together the Disney-related artists who appear on the new, aptly named Disney Music Block Party album as well as other special guests. In addition to the concert stage, the tour stops will include Playskool centers, arts and crafts stations, and dance and music making sections to keep yourself busy while They Might Be Giants aren't playing.

All of the related websites are still under construction with the main tour page launch recently bumped eight days to the 20th, the day the Block Party album is released. The tour page on the main Disney site also includes what will eventually become links to a podcast and other downloads.

Additionally, it's mentioned that the Disney Music Block Party album will be sold on iTunes. So if you want to hear TMBG's "Ballad of Davy Crockett (In Outer Space)" without getting the entire CD, you should be able to do so.
