Back on the Road
Everyone’s favorite New Zealanders — Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, also known as the Flight of the Conchords — took the stage next with a slew of songs and stories from the road. It’s been rough for those guys: apparently they were stuck in an elevator for a while recently. Who knows how they were strong enough to pull that one out. Although their set was fairly brief, we were treated to some old favorites, including a version of “Song for Sally” that lapsed into a cover of Radiohead’s “Creep.” And, of course, “Business Time,” which seriously augmented my already massive crush on Jemaine.
SourceSince their hit HBO series, the New Zealand duo Flight of the Conchords have built up a massive cult following here in the States. I’ve always seen them as sort of a hipster folk version of Tenacious D, which is by no means a criticism considering that they are actually quite funny. Flight of the Conchords may have gotten the biggest response of the night up until that point simply because they play music, which kept the audience more energized and engaged. Their hour-long set consisted of well-known songs like “Hurt Feelings,” “Inner City Pressure,” and “Business Time.” Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie also used the Austin crowd to test out a new song about a father and son, getting confused laughs from the audience as they fumbled the lyrics a few times. The real brilliance of the duo is their between-song dialogue, which centered around “wild” stories of life on the road that had much of the crowd in tears.
