Hello and Thanks for Coming


You have stumbled upon my listing of They Might Be Giants Bootlegs. My rules are pretty simple. I am only interested in CDs and complete shows and never for profit. Please contact me if you would like to set something up. Check out the free mp3 below!

TMBG - Mr. Me (featuring The Other Thing)Live 12/10/2003


bullet Offer me a trade, I check my email almost everyday, so come on! do it!
bullet Always do exact copies with Disc at Once (DOA) and no 2 second gaps. If I sent you a disc with 2 second gaps, I am an idiot and I will send you a new disc. I expect the same from you.
bullet When you email me, please reply including our previous messages. This helps a lot when I'm arranging multiple trades and ensures your disks end up going to the right address.
bullet I won't split hairs over the number of CD's in a trade, the number of disks should be relatively equal, but CD's are cheap and postage is cheap too. If I'm getting something good, I'll send you extra discs.
bullet I am a music fan first, and an audiophile second. Yes I understand mp3's are a lossy format and I would not use them to make an audio copy for you. However, if mp3 is the only format you have a They Might Be Giants show in, I'm very interested in it. I can put any format on to a CDr that you would like (.wav, .mp3, .shn, .flac, etc) I will covert to standard audio CD's unless you request otherwise.
bullet I don't care what type of name brand CDr's you send me. If you do care, that's cool, let me know and I'll use that type.
bullet I will not trade commercially produced live shows. These are shows you can pick up at your local music store by trading with cash. This site is not for profit. I own every CD that was commercially produced for the bands I trade for.
bullet Lastly, have fun people


They Might Be Giants have now started a download service through www.theymightbegiants.com featuring live shows beginning 7/2/04. All the shows I get from that site will not be trade-able. If you want a copy, check out their site and pay them $10 bucks (they deserve the respect).

Drop me an email,

I'm also interested in the following groups, although They Might Be Giants trades are preferred. [as well as any solo work by John Flansburgh, John Linnell, Mono Puff, etc...]
Ben Folds Five [or solo]
Barenaked Ladies
Common Rotation
Flogging Molly
Fountains of Wayne
Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Moxy Fruvous
Reel Big Fish
Tenacious D
