Last night I went to see the musical-comedy duo Flight of the Conchords at Town Hall and my cheeks still hurt from laughing. Their folky-jokey songs are never my favorite part of the New Zealand duo's HBO series (also called Flight of the Conchords and about their band) so I wasn't sure how much I would like them live in concert, but somehow on stage the songs were funnier and they still had the silly banter they have during their show that I became addicted to during its first season last summer. There was a sign on the box-office that said the show was beyond sold-out and the crowd was an interesting one filled with hipsters and business-types alike. I also heard more than a few New Zealand accents. If you can somehow charm you're way in they are playing again tonight and believe me their show made for a great mid-week lift. Of course it didn't help that I have a huge crush on both of them! You just can't beat funny and cute, and these boys are capitalizing on it!
Here they are in a scene from their show which I hear starts filming again in September! (l-r) Bret Mackenzie and Jermaine Clement
