If you haven’t heard about They Might Be Giants’ new album “Here Comes Science,” here’s your chance. They’ll play a benefit concert at the New York Hall of Science this Sunday:

Queens, N.Y. — After months of traveling the country on a national tour, 2009 Grammy Winners They Might Be Giants will play two benefit concerts at the New York Hall of Science on December 13. The two shows, at 1 and 3:15 pm, will feature TMBG’s newest songs from their latest children’s album “Here Comes Science,” which examines a wide array of scientific ideas. Proceeds from the $35 concert tickets will be donated to NYSCI.

“They Might Be Giants is a great band that appeals to every generation and we’re excited to share their smart and funny music with our audiences,” said NYSCI Director and Chief Content Officer Eric Siegel who has a special connection to the project. Siegel was employed by They Might Be Giants to fact check the songs and videos on “Here Comes Science.”

“The list of songs demonstrates the premise of the recording, that science is real” said Siegel. “Here comes Science” includes: ‘Science Is Real,’ ‘Meet The Elements,’ ‘I Am A Paleontologist,’ ‘The Bloodmobile,’ ‘Electric Car,’ ‘My Brother The Ape’ ‘What Is A Shooting Star?,’ ‘How Many Planets?,’ ‘Why Does The Sun Shine?,’ ‘Why Does The Sun Really Shine?,’ ‘Roy G. Biv,’ ‘Put It To The Test; Photosynthesis,’ ‘Cells,’ ‘Speed And Velocity,’ ‘Computer Assisted Design,’ ‘Solid Liquid Gas,’ ‘Here Comes Science,’ and ‘The Ballad Of Davy Crockett (In Outer Space).’
