Talib Kweli: Enjoying watching Flight of the Conchords in Michigan
The man wearing the beige hat with Bret is the same man who hugged J recently.

To me, there were no missteps. Their voices were perfection, they harmonize so beautifully together, their playing was fantastic, and the little things they added here and there to the old songs just made them even better. Not that I get tired of them, although I kind of wish Business Time was the one they did on fast-forward rather than Rhymenoceros vs Hiphipopotamus. And they are just so adorable when doing their "we're clueless dorks who think we're rock stars" when talking about groupies and perks like complimentary muffins. Again, something I just don't seem to be getting tired of yet!
Oh, I saw a girl heading to her seat in the row in front of us- we were in VV so this was UU. She had on a whatthefolk.com (I know it's .net here but I think it said .com on her shirt) t-shirt that said Jemainiac on the front. Anyone we know here?
Jemaine told the audience to please be very quiet and to please listen to the lyrics during their new song between a father and son. They started but then he stopped almost immediately and admonished some guys who were joking and laughing by saying things like 'why are you telling your own jokes? You paid to come here and hear our jokes....don't tell your own! Be quiet!" And after that, it was pretty quiet during the song. And the way it's shown on the screens is pretty cool and they got a lot of laughs setting it up. I'll be glad when it's cool to show and talk about. There are some lines in that song that about killed me.
Jemaine got down to the edge of the stage and reached for a woman and took her hand while singing "I'm a weirdo....wth am I doing here....I don't belong here..." I must say, Jemaine's voice sounded amazing during this bit of song, very high and beautiful- and it went on longer than the 1 video I've seen of it on this tour.
At one point Jemaine talked about having us in the pavilion fight everyone on the lawn, lol....then he was saying that would not be good. Not a good way to open for the headliner by having the audience all kill one another after they'd all come to see Dave. I yelled "we came for you!" And he held his fist out in my direction and fist-bumped me, lol. Damn, I wish we'd been closer.
