"Davy Crockett" hits the internet

I've just a couple of links from the past week or so here today. With "The Ballad of Davy Crockett (In Outer Space)" video released last week, both the blog and the band's MySpace blog are pointing out that the video is available for easy, embeddable viewing on YouTube.

If you like the video, you may want to check out the "making of" post from Tiny Inventions' (creators of the video, along with illustrator and frequent TMBG collaborator David Cowles) blog. The post describes some of the methods used to create the video and includes lots of interesting pictures and videos.

Finally, we have an article from the Asbury Park Press speaking to some of the Disney Block Party acts including They Might Be Giants. John Flansburgh describes what it's like to play for children who might not recognize they're at a concert and tells what he's learned from audiences.
