C'mon people..Jemaine is much more than just a hot, God-like, swoonworthy, athletic body..

:blush:

..what was I saying?..oh, yeah..so much more.. :nod:
But if you did I'd hold you tight / Into every single night
And we'd fall asleep together / And we'd wake up in the sunlight
Well, maybe I'm a dreamer / But maybe one day you'll see / That dreams are...

No idea. It was only a few hours old and in amongst all the Dallas tweets about the gig. Guess we have to wait and see.

I've put out a shout on Twitter for more details anyways :waiting:

Review: Flight of the Conchords soars in Metroplex debut
Preston Jones
GRAND PRAIRIE -- If folk-pop pair Simon and Garfunkel starred in a cult hit TV series, hailed from New Zealand, sang earnestly about racist dragons, rapped about rhinos and looked smashing in homemade robot costumes, there's an outside chance they could be mistaken for fellow folkers Flight of the Conchords.

Well, maybe not entirely: "Why so many condom shops, Dallas?" asked Bret McKenzie, one half of the self-described "digi-folk humorist" duo, not long after coming onstage. "We've been traveling for a month and we've never seen so many condom shops."

When is the last time you heard Paul Simon ponder that aloud?

McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, the comics who perform as Flight of the Conchords, made their north Texas debut Tuesday night before a raucous, sold-out Nokia Theatre.

Wielding, at various points, acoustic guitars, electric pianos, electric guitars and a tiny drum kit, McKenzie and Clement spent nearly two hours indulging a vocal audience with future classics like The Most Beautiful Girl (in the Room), Carol Brown, Business Time and Think About It (with its oh-so-timely nod to swine flu: "These pigs have issues/Can we get them some tissues?").

With only “Nigel,” a supposed member of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra to back them -- Clement explained the Conchords had been touring with a larger contingent, but "budgetary cutbacks" had slimmed the organization -- the Conchords repeatedly demonstrated the droll, easy-going charm that's marked their two seasons on HBO.

Most of the evening’s more amusing moments are, sadly, unprintable in a family newspaper. Still, these Conchords made it all look utterly effortless, delivering, in the process, one of the best shows – musical or comedic -- so far this year.

No meet and greet apparently at this one. This may well signal the end of them for the tour if their management is worried about swine flu.

No Robots, but they did perform Bowie. Crowd well behaved also.

Sounds like a great show! :)

SheWolf- those are some great photos- thanks for that link! Looks like Bret found himself a pimp-daddy coat (and headband??) to go with Jemaine's man-ho outfit... :lol:

SheWolf, thanks for the link - there are some great pictures of Jemaine in there. :drool: (And probably a few of Bret as well... he was there too, wasn't he? :hrm: :lol:)

Seriously - that picture at the end of Bret in his "outfit" was very nice. :clap: Where do you even find a full length zebra coat to go with your zebra spandex pants??? David Lee Roth must have had a yard sale. :lol:
