They Might Be Giants live in 1997

A contributor to TMBW has posted that Laura Cantrell's Radio Thrift Shop played a live, 1997 performance by They Might Be Giants last week. Originally broadcast live on the same show years prior, the concert was held at the Museum of Television and Radio. Last week's show is archived on and TMBG's set starts at 1:53:00 in.

The half hour set includes "Counterfeit Faker," later released on 1999's online-only Long Tall Weekend; an early "Doctor Worm;" the original, slower version of "Finished With Lies," a faster version of which would appear on Mink Car four years later; among others. Hosts Laura Cantrell and Nick Hill had also both previously collaborated on songs with They Might Be Giants.
