fotccast 300x225 Flight of the Conchords roll call@ZackTeibloom Laura did such a spot-on job with her Flight of the Conchords review that I had to talk to the Conchords, their manager and biggest fan to see what they thought of the show.

Murray-

OK. Band meeting. Murray Hewitt speaking. Well, first off we had perfect attendance. Both Bret and Jermaine were present. As a bonus, we had a bit of a crowd there, too. Not just Mel. As many as three dozen people were there. I hear they even stuck around for two encores, yeah? I wasn’t there, 30 Rock was on, but I had Mel record it for me. It looked like at least three dozen attendees. New record for the Conchords! Let’s put that on the big chart. Read the rest of this entry »

Successful Crash #13: FOTC “It’s Crashing Time”

fotc2 300x205 Successful Crash #13: FOTC Its Crashing Time@ZackTeibloom Tonight, I was going to make a crash. You know how I knew? Two Kiwi’s known as the Flight of the Conchords. A sold out show at Bass Concert Hall meant overwhelmed student-run security. I had my Dead Weather t-shirt on for confidence. The conditions were perfect.

Usually I have to scope out the situation for 10-15 minutes and make a plan. Not this time. I got there 20 minutes before the show. You know I like to be a little early. I got in faster than the people with tickets who walked in the same time as me. I can take my time, but sometimes you need a quickie.

There was no turnstile to walk through, no stamp or wrist band to verify entry and no beefy security guards for intimidation. No barriers tonight. Just a few careless student ticket takers who had no idea what Festival Crashing is. It’s crashing. It’s crashing time. Read the rest of this entry »

New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo accapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo, also known as Flight of the Conchords, played an absolutely sold-out show at the colossal Arie Crown Theater in Chicago last Tuesday night.

Eugene Mirman, who also plays Bret and Jemaine’s steel drum-playing landlord on their hilarious and aptly titled HBO show “Flight of the Conchords,” opened for the two Kiwis. However, due to my friend’s incompetent directional skills (not my fault this time, Zack) and a quick sandwich, we ended up arriving twenty minutes late. This was just in time for us to catch the end of Mirman’s act and some guys singing a very unfunny song about Delta airlines. Read the rest of this entry »
