Coraline released, Grammys Sunday

February is a month with multiple They Might Be Giants related events. Today is the release of Coraline into theaters. Based on the book by Neil Gaiman, the film includes a short song by TMBG. The song is also in the soundtrack which has already been released on digital music services with the physical CD release coming on Tuesday the 10th.

Before Tuesday comes, Sunday must. And on Sunday night They Might Be Giants are up for a Grammy award for their second children's effort Here Come the 123s. Nominated in the Best Musical Album For Children category, this would be their second Grammy as the first was for "Boss of Me." Be sure to tune in at 8 o'clock on the 8th on your local CBS station to see it all go down.

Here Come the 123s has been out for a while though, so if you are looking for the latest from Here Comes Science, stop-motion artist Hine Mizushima has posted a new screenshot from her contribution to the upcoming children's album. Check it out on her site or featured on the They Might Be Giants Facebook page.

Hey just fyi - the category that TMBG is in will actually be announced separately, and not part of the Grammys at 8pm.

It looks like it might be viewable online though -- http://grammy.com/grammy_awards/GRAMMY_Live.aspx
