This morning, the Pabst Theater Group announced two new additions to its upcoming schedule: a Turner Hall Ballroom gig from alt rockers They Might Be Giants in March, as well as adding Violent Femmes founding drummer Victor DeLorenzo to Rainn Wilson's upcoming Nov. 12 Pabst Theater performance as both moderator and the opening act along with his band Nineteen Thirteen.
They Might Be Giants will perform Saturday, March 19 at the Turner Hall Ballroom, marking the influential alt rock staple's first visit to Milwaukee since 2013's gig at the Turner Hall Ballroom. This past year, the band recorded 52 new tracks as a part of its DialASong.com launch, some of which were released on its seventeenth studio album "Glean" and some more planned for two more albums to come out in the upcoming months.
The show is set for 9 p.m., with doors opening at 8 p.m., and tickets go on sale beginning Friday, Oct. 30 at noon.
As for the second part of the announcement, Victor DeLorenzo will serve as the moderator for "The Office" star Rainn Wilson's upcoming comedy performance – in support of his new book "The Bassoon King: My Life in Art, Faith and Idiocy" – at the Pabst Theater on Thursday, Nov. 12. DeLorenzo will also serve as the show's opener with his chamber rock band Nineteen Thirteen. Tickets for the show go on sale beginning Friday, Oct. 30 at noon.
