Overview
Gigantic (A Tale Of Two Johns) is the celebrated true story of They Might Be Giants, the Brooklyn-based musical duo of John Flansburgh and John Linnell, who have spent the past twenty years crafting their singular alt-pop style: cerebral, dark and humorous. Embracing the Do-It-Yourself ethos of true independent artists, they have followed a unique and sometimes hilarious path to cult stardom - from their first meeting in grade school through the East Village performance art scene to their 2002 Grammy Award - aided by stunning low-budget music videos, trailblazing use of the internet and a telephone answering machine.
