‘Flood’ warning

Before “nerd rock” was a recognized genre, They Might Be Giants embodied it. The Brooklyn duo — John Linnell and John Flansburgh — have been recording together for more than 40 years, which have produced 18 pop-rock albums, one TV theme song (“Malcolm in the Middle”) and five children’s albums. For this tour, they are playing the entirety of their landmark 1990 album “Flood,” plus songs from their album “Mink Car” (released on Sept. 11, 2001 — so many people didn’t notice). The show happens Wednesday at The Depot, 13 N. 400 West, Salt Lake City. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Resale tickets available at TheDepot.com.

Food trucks and live music and entertainment are promised at each mural site. For information and a map for a self-guided tour, go to themuralfest.com.
