They Might Be Giants will headline Friday, June 2nd of this year’s Nelsonville Music Festival. Formed in 1982, They Might Be Giants are themselves giants of a sort in the pantheon of alternative-indie-college rock (or whatever you wanna call it). Emerging out of NYC’s East Village performance scene with a singular take on art-pop, the dynamic duo of John Flansburgh and John Linnell would break big at the dawn of the 1990’s with their platinum LP Flood, one of the most beloved “alternative rock” albums of all time. In the following years the band would go on to dip their creative toes in a variety of different pools-not only releasing a slew of excellent albums, but also making music for television and films, snagging a couple of Grammy awards, and serving as the subject for an acclaimed documentary about their career (Gigantic: A Tale of Two Johns). Jenny Lewis has released three acclaimed solo albums, that is on top forming the beloved Rilo Kiley in 1995, and her numerous guest appearances and side projects. Her newest album is 2014’s well received release The Voyager, those recordings took place with Ryan Adams and his long-term producer Mike Viola in their California studios. Lewis has collaborated with The Postal Service, Conor Oberst, M. Ward, and many more. She will play NMF on Saturday, June 3rd right before that night’s headliner Ween. Rounding out this third round of Nelsonville Music Festival lineup announcements are Shannon and the Clams, The Cactus Blossoms, Mr. Elevator, Jay Som, Ona, St. Lenox, Apple & The Moon, Chris Biester, Max Knouse, and a Square Dance with Becky Hill with more acts still to be announced!
