WOW! So many great pics and videos and accounts! The glitter outfits! :shock: :supz: Thanks SW, nonch and Indy for sharing your experiences. I'm not surprised Jemaine recognised you, SW! Sounds like you all had a wonderful evening and I'm glad you had a chance to experience both shows! I can't wait to see your pictures, Indy. :D

This says it was taken on May 4th but I thought he wore that plaid shirt and then the sparkly jumpsuit. How many wardrobe changes were there?

Hilarische folk-comedy met Flight Of The Conchords
Geplaatst door: joostdewit, vandaag om 11:03:15
The Flight of the Conchords is een folk-comedy-duo, bestaande uit Bret McKenzie en Jermaine Clement uit Nieuw Zeeland. Of zoals ze zelf graag zeggen “Formerly New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo”. Deze week waren ze voor het eerst in Nederland en speelden twee shows in de Melkweg.

Met een flinke dosis zelfspot steken The Flight of the Conchords de draak met alles wat op hun pad komt. Aan alle stijlen muziek weten ze een komische draai te geven, van hiphop tot chansons en soul tot house. Aan de basis van alles staan Bret en Jermaine op hun akoestische gitaar, dit maal versterkt door Ned (het one-man symfonisch orkest) op cello, drums en toetsen.

Waar het vooral om draait bij The Flight of the Conchords is lachen. De teksten van de nummers zijn zonder uitzondering absurd te noemen. Wanneer Bret en Jermaine deze op een ‘serieuze’ manier spelen is het effect hilarisch.

Nadat Bret en Jermaine gisteravond nog even uitlegden aan de zaal wat ze precies deden ‘we spelen nummers en praten tussendoor’ konden ze van start. Wat volgde waren twee uurtjes geweldig lachen! Een veel terugkerend thema in de nummers van de heren zijn hun ongemakkelijke aanvaringen met vrouwen. Gelukkig was er ook ruimte voor serieuze onderwerpen als de vernietiging van de mensheid door robots en epileptische honden.


Na hun hiphop talenten getoond te hebben in het klassieke ‘Hiphopopatamus vs. Rhymenoceros’ volgde ‘Demon Women’ dat zij tot ieders verrassing in een strak glitterpak speelden. Het publiek lijkt de meeste nummers te kennen, maar lacht er zeker niet minder om. Nadat er al een paar keer om geroepen was passeerde uiteindelijk ook ‘Business Time’ de revue.


In de toegift krijgen we nog één nummertje toe, ‘Too Many Dicks on the Dancefloor’ en dan zit het er jammer genoeg al weer op. Het was een uitermate vermakelijke show. Het verbaasde mij hoe gemakkelijk de teksten en grappen te volgen waren en ook hoe bekend hun repertoire onder het Nederlandse publiek is. Mochten ze weer terugkomen, dan weet je in ieder geval dat je er snel bij moet zijn.

Ken je The Flight Of the Conchords nog niet, ga deze bevrijdingsdag dan eens lekker youtube-en.

The Most Beautiful Girl (in the Room)
The Humans Are Dead

Hey, I fed the boys, did the dishes, their lunches are made.....and I'm getting a neckache again waiting to hear about tonight's show!

Did you see where they couldn't fly, apparently took a ferry and then a bus and arrived just 30 minutes before they had to go on?? :shock:

EEP!! Our boys are very dedicated! :D
