“When I was about 12 years old, I think the first album that I bought was a Frank Zappa record.

Although in some ways, it was kind of less of an event than when I was ten, and I was given ‘Let It Be’ by the Beatles. The idea of actually owning a record just blew my mind utterly.

But the Zappa album was the first one that I went out and got myself. It was on sale, so it was about three dollars. That was kind of cool, and I said, ‘I can afford to buy this. I’m gonna get it!’ ”

John Linnell and his bandmates in They Might Be Giants will invade the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington at 8pm on Friday (September 9) in support of their new album, “Join Us” – which features the song, “Canajoharie.” Tix are $34.
