May 24 Los Angeles Greek

I didn't see a post for this show, so feel free to move this if I missed it somehow.

Big crowd! The guys really hammed it up. Met Arj before the show roaming around. Before Arj went on Eugene Merman (the landlord on the show) did about 10 minutes Clean shaven Jemaine tonight. Whatever happened in Vegas kept the beard there...

I'm bad with the order but here's the songs as I recall:

Too Many Dicks
Hurt Feelings
Most Beautiful Girl
Stana
Business Time (w/ monitor guy Matt on drums)
I'm Not Crying
Carol Brown (Chorus)
Think About It
Epileptic Dogs
Rhymenocerous
Jenny
Told You I Was Freaky
Love With a Sexy Lady/ Sugalumps

Encores:
Prince Of Parties
Albi
Bowie

They brought out the HBO Latin America versions of themselves to jam with them on Think About It. They sang the whole song in Spanish. It was hilarious. Early on someone hit Bret with a t-shirt that caught him off guard as it was "very heavy". Jemaine jumped in the crowd for Sugalumps. Shocked that they didn't do Robots. I'm sure I'll remember more with some sleep. There was a few people waiting by the buses. We went there but weren't tough enough to brave the cold. You could hear the hospitality was in full force and not breaking up anytime soon.

Thanks skipsabn for the update! Bringing on the HBO Latin American versions of themselves on stage to sing in Spanish sounds absolutely hilarious. I hope someone filmed it and puts it up on YouTube. And that's great that you guys got both Eugene and Arj.
Looking forward to reading more about this show :D

I love how Jem is a bit chilly (see scarf) yet must roll up those sleeves to show a bit of arm! :D

Does Bret always have a Rhymenocerous sitting on his guitar???

Thanks for the recap! Some great photos! I'm a fan of the scarf ;)
The Latin Conchords! That was awesome!! The "break it down" & "fade out" parts cracked me up! :D
Sounds like an awesome show! I so wish I could have gone.

Meet and greet teaser: Only Bret came out last night. We waited until 2 AM but he was only out for a few minutes. I didn't have the chance to say hi because he only talked with 3-4 fans before boarding the tour bus. Yes, some girl bought him a new toy piano and I believe he said he would probably play it in Berkeley! Little White, watch out!

skipsabn- Thanks for the great recap! More whenever you're rested and think of anything new, ok? :D Eugene and Arj- cool. 8)

OMG, I've watched Issues 3 times now- those 2 guys rocked it!! Anyone have their names? The one sounded just like Bret. And Jemaine? Great baritone....yikes! Anyone know what he mumbled at the mumbly part? :) That was so funny- I loved how Jemaine said it was like Boyz 2 Men....or Los Lobos! :lol:
Thanks for posting it, Venus. :) The pics of Jemaine too...... :drool: Love that 1st one best. Yep, I like him clean-shaven best, I think. But he's always so handsome.

Tonight's show is bound to be epic.....they're going to be king of on a "this is it!" high.....and also wanting to give a great last show! :D
