Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival -- Verizon Wireless Amphitheater -- 9/15/13

Upon our return, a band set-up was arranged on stage, and Ross brought out Flight of the Conchords. Deafening screams and cheers filled the air. I knew FOTC would be brilliant but the show that they put on tonight was nothing short of spectacular. This New Zealand based duo (Bret and Jemaine) played different characters in song after song, stopped to tell their very (not at all) rock and roll road stories, rapped a bit (holy s*** unbelievable!!), and even put the eight security guards on blast saying that they were there so people wouldn't text or tweet. They also welcomed any groupies to come back stage and do, "really weird stuff with aquatic life." They then apologized to Irvine if any of the groupies woke up with some "bass in their ass" or a "sole in their hole." They got a standing ovation, because wow, they were great.

I love the gushing review!

And yeah, being photobombed by Jemaine. Ugh :roll: ... what a DRAG.
It's the height of rudeness! :P

I know, how rude. ;) All these lucky peeps getting to mingle with the acts during afterparties.

Looks like Jemaine had fun with some props at the afterparty too.

After a short intermission, Flight of the Conchords hit the stage to a boisterous applause. The duo played classics like “Hurt Feelings” and “Business Time.”

But for a comedy troupe that are known for their songs, their banter was the highlight. The on-stage chemistry between Bret and Jemaine was priceless.

During a new song, they had to stop because Jemaine screamed as if something had bitten or stung him in the back.

This opened up some of the funniest dialogue of the night. “The Irvine Incident,” as Jemaine called it, made for a memorable performance.
