Jumbo Sized Performances

"It is a popular series, some things more than others," Lesser said. He's found that acts like They Might Be Giants, who already had a core following before trying out children's music, seem to generate the most excitement.

"People love them," he said.

The later show will give those long-time fans a chance to see They Might Be Giants perform hits like "Birdhouse in Your Soul," "Ana Ng" and "Snail Shell." Lesser said that the group's desire to keep that performance limited to those 14 and older isn't a result of staging a show for the younger set earlier in the day; the suggested age limit has been standard They Might Be Giants practice for years.

"They like to do some mature stuff," he said.

Tickets for the family show are $10 for children and $15 for adults. Admission to the later show is $25. Tickets can be purchased through www.theegg.org, by calling 473-1845 or visiting the box office.""
