My tickets for tonight are in RR. I am borrowing a friends camera with a better zoom. I hope I get some nice pictures tonight. Oh I forgot this one:

Same color I've used for awhile, it doesn't look exactly like that on me but it's purty.

Very purty.....:)

I'm a hairstylist and used to be all elite-y about hair color: you must use the stuff I buy at the beauty supply, not the box stuff.

Well, I changed my tune. The box colors are great...love the conditioners that come with them. Only thing is, I refuse to just rinse out the color.....I have to shampoo it b4 conditioning. Old habits and all that.

I'm wating til a few days before our show to do my color....want it fresh and purty with no silver anywhere! :lol:

I will not see the Conchords with silvery roots..... :o

I've always wanted to dye or highlight my hair but I've never had the cahounas.

:(

And Sully - your pictures are fantastic!

Edit: P.S. Jemaine crossing his legs is UBER sixy :drool:

I color mine cuz I have to.... if you want a temporary change, use a semi-permanent, or a color-mousse/gel.

Any more show accounts/pics?

Not the clearest but:

The crowd wasn't too bad last night. A few people yelled some stuff out but overall they were pretty good. Someone shouted out "Free bird" and they played it a little bit. Jemaine joked that if they said it again they would play the 20 minute version. So of course the guy yelled it out again and Jemaine was like "I wasn't kidding." They made like they were going to play it again.

During Bowie some guy ran up on stage. For a second I thought it was part of the show and then I saw two security guards chasing him. B and J laughed a little as they were playing but just kept on going. Very professional like. :clap:

Jemaine started making fun of the hecklers. Imitating their voices it was hilarious. Jemaine at one point scolded Bret for talking to us too much. Saying that once you start talking them you build a relationship with people then they get all needy and then they start making demands.

It was the same heckling that went on last year here.

And they played Freebird again, like last year.
I personally feel that that Jermaines comebacks to the screams are always funny.

The show this year was much better for me because
1. I had a few more drinks than last
2. The audio was much clearer than last.


Great time.

Eugene was there? I kinda thought the announcer at the beginning sounded like Eugene. Can anyone confirm?

Here is me with a Radio City drink stirrer! Haha.

Hey guys,

I was at the show last night and I gotta say, it friggen rocked. I wish I had a ticket to go back tonight! I am going to hang around at the stage door to try to meet them though. I was there last night and got a pic with Kristin. I was the boy wearing a red FOTC shirt so you might have seen me. Hopefully they come out tonight and I can get uptown in time!

Here are the songs that I remember from the set list in no order:

Too Many Dicks
Hurt Feelings
Free Bird
The Humans Are Dead
Business Time
Mutha Uckas
The Bus Driver Song (I have a full vid of this)
I'm Not Crying
Albi
Demon Woman
I Told You I Was Freeky
Jenny
Carol Brown
Bowie
Sugalumps
We're Both In Love With The Same girl (Or whatever it's called)
Stana (LOVED this)
And a whole lot of banter. Does anyone remember if they did anything else? I feel like they did and I just can't remember. It rocked though!

Reeeeally hoping to meet them tonight. The earliest I can get over there is like 10:50, so my fingers are crossed!
"I get ridiculed all the time. 'Ah, hey! Gingerballs!' you know. It's not just you Bret, it's all the time, and it's not just gingerballs, you know? I get umm.. 'Oh, what are you on your way to the dick meeting?'"

AWW! They did I'm Not Cryin' at your show! I SO wanted them to do it here, but alas....... :(

Pics are GREAT! Love seeing them.

Jemaine's quick wit is amazing. I don't know how the rest of you all feel, but I think the banter is almost the best part of the show. I would rate the top 3 things as:
1. Gazing upon them ("ogling" would be a better term, perhaps)
2. Hearing them speak
3. Hearing them play and sing.

Too simplistic?

Has anybody from slut_angel? Anyone see her last night?

Good luck, Brandinian! Btw-love your avatar! :yawinkle:

Hah, thanks! I'm Not Crying was totally one of the highlights of the show. I love the banter as well. Very witty.

I saw Eugene after the show. He came out of the stage door. I'm not sure if he was the one doing the annoucing. I thought it sounded like Jemaine when Kristen was introduced.

I saw her (slut_angel) last night. She was hanging with Nancy.

Here's a snippet of I'm not crying I took:
