28 hours to go! :supz:

Anyways, this seems to be the first more-intimate venue they play in on the tour as the Ryman's 3000 seats look to be right on top of the stage. I was reading elsewhere, that the venue has some of the best acoustics, so I'm pretty excited!

You're right, Austin. The Ryman is very well-known as having the best acoustics in the entire South.
And it's been said, that from the side balcony seats, you're close enough to the stage to just hand your autograph book to the performers. (Should you be so inclined!) So, you should be sitting in the catbird's seat where you are. Ya lucky stiff! :yawinkle: This will be me :shock: :doh: :worry: :clap:

Don't let your camera get taken though! And remember: NO FLASH

See ya there, buddy! :supz:

They're HERE!
Bret and Kristin were spotted at Hot Zipper.

At Marche. Wherever that is. About 90 minutes ago. So chances are long gone now.

FWIW I heard it was dinner first, then Hot Zipper. At least the timeline indicates that.

You're probably right. I don't even know what Hot Zipper is!
As for Marche, it's Marche Aritsan Foods. Good food and not terribly costly. Mostly for lunch/ brunch type meals. I would love to meet Kristen. She just seems so likable. :)

You need to check out some of the comedy clubs in the area, make some calls. They went on unannounced after the last act a few nights ago at a small club in Nashville , I believe it was. They were onstage for a short time but still......how cool would it be to see them in a small club?

Do some sleuthing! :D

I was going to Tennessee, but some things just don't work out that way... You guys will have to tell me how it all went down! Have a terrific time and be sure to take plenty of ( flash-free ;) ) photos!

So they were spotted again. I guess having a day off meant they went to see the sights and relax a little.

But the public/fans are ever vigilant and a tweet is done

Lonesome River Band at Station Inn in Nashville were fantastic. Oh so versatile. Flight of the Conchords and their entourage was there too.

Apparently.

Anyways, this thread will be all fluff, no filler :lol: So hurry up and get here gig!

Can I just say how cute I think it is that Bret and Kristen are hanging out together on this first leg of the tour? :smiles:

I thought the same thing about Bret and Kristen.....Seems Bret is the more outgoing and fun-loving of the FOTC duo. (Or so it seemsfrom things I've read.)

Station Inn, eh? That's a bluegrass club. Guess our boys are versatile too! :D I hope they had fun here yesterday.

We've had horrible thunderstorms all day. We're currently under a tornado warning. Tornadoes have touched down and have done much damage in a city just outside Nashville. Interstates are closed, etc. It's a real mess!


I'm off topic, I know it. I'm stopping.

People are tweeting but don't seem overly concerned atm. Loads are heading to the gig or getting ready to go it seems. Only a few mention the tornado warnings.

This was posted on Twitter a little while back

We had tornado sirens going off in Nashville -- Flight of the Conchords are in town. I wonder if they've ever been close to tornados

Not sure how bad it is now though.

Mainly, the tornadoes hit Murfreesboro, an outside suburb. I heard the sirens at about 12 or 1 PM local time, and all of the storms have passed. Downtown Nashville, where the gig is at, is practically the same sparse from the average storm damage.

Edit: *As far as I know....
