“Istanbul, not Constantinople. Istanbul, not Constantinople. Istanbul, not Constantinople.” Ahhh, remember listening to that song in school and then having it stuck in your head until one of your friends introduced you to flavored vodka? John Flansburgh and John Linnell of alternative rock band They Might Be Giants have been churning out classics like “Istanbul (Not Constantinople)” since the early ’80s, but that doesn’t mean
they haven’t kept up with the Joneses. Just this past month, the duo independently released Phone Power in a pay-what-you-want format right out of the Radiohead playbook. They Might Be Giants say they won’t be hitting the road again until 2018, so this Wednesday might be your last chance for a while to check out the only two dudes who ever made accordion playing cool (save for the foxy Christina Hendricks on Mad Men).

7 p.m. Wednesday, April 6 | The Beacham, 54 N. Orange Ave. | 407-246-1419 | thebeacham.org | $22-$35
