Corrine- yep, they did indeed say it. "Oh, we'll be back..." :) They've said it at other M&G's too, so my fingers are crossed that we'll get to see them again/for the first time!

Jack, I'm really sorry you couldn't get in. At least there are tons of videos of the shows to watch....I know that's cold comfort but it's sure better than not being able to see them other than on the tv, eh?

Cheer up Jack!
Don't let it get you down
Pick yourself up off the ground
It's gonna be alright
Cheer up Jack
You look a little sad
Your life ain't so bad
Just think of all the good times
You've got all your limbs
You make good videos
Well, tomorrow is another day...:D

jackvancouver wrote:Hey people of WhatTheFolk, My name's Jack Zhang. I was the guy out front of the Centre holding the sign that says "Will Perform FOTC Songs for Spare Tickets". I was in a Insomniac Games shirt and using a Canon HV30 HDTV camcorder on a tripod. You might recall that on the 08 tour, a LA fan held a sign saying "Will Dance Robot For Spare Tickets". I was very much inspired by that.

I'm glad that all that got in had a good time. I unfortunately didn't since I didn't get in.

But I saw you Dandy, and even filmed you taking a picture. I have filmed the whole adventure that I had that day (in HD) and posted it on Vimeo (edited the first 2 Jemaine pics posted by M-DOG in this thread into my video.)

I wept all night after heading home after the show started and no one had tickets for me, only one kind samaritan said "Maybe". :'(

I have no idea how much sympathy people here would have for me (I guess is very little), But I consider myself one of the hardcore fans and not getting in is true heartbreak.

I think I need a hug...


Oh Jack, I'm so sorry to hear you didn't get a ticket in the end. :goodman: Did you see someone asking about you on the Flight of the Conchords facebook fanpage? Read the caption. Link: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=3 ... 515&ref=mf

Looks like you obviously made an impression on the fans at least :)
Don't give up though. Let's hope your time comes soon :)

Im glad that you guys liked my video of Bret falling down during Sugalumps, its amazing that dragonfly (the girl that Bret invites on stage and later gets in trouble) found herself there, lol.

I also uploaded a video of the opening song (with dave singing his part!) here :)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZdMvJCzDJcA

Im still surprised of how good the concert was. Definitely funnier than on the tv! (and they are already hilarious on the show!). I got my tickets 4 days before the show on ticketmaster website, which was a miracle taking into consideration that they sold out during the presale. My tickets were in the third row right in the center! From what I've heard I think even some people that bought them on the presale didn't manage to get such a good place. If only they didn't had that stupid orchestra pit that made them another couple of rows further away.

I feel like the setlist was almost perfect, but I would have traded hurt feelings and bus driver song for Carol Brown and Ladies in the World. Its such an honor that they wrote too many dicks based on a real experience here in Vancouver! although I have always thought the male-female ratio here is actually very favorable for us guys, hehehe.

Does anyone has a pic of the dolphin painting that we passed to them at the end? it was hilarious. I managed to get 2 of their guitar pics when the show eneded but they don't have anything special, they are just regular turtle brand orange guitar pics :(

I didn't waited long enough to see the guys after the show, but I did see Dave and took an amazing picture with him there, he should have a spin off tv show just about him and his pawn shop adventures, lol:

Thanks for the adaptation of "Cheer Up, Murray" for me. That was heartwarming.

All the pics are so great. I'm so jealous!

Monsterinlove, that last one of you and Jemaine is adorable. What's your band's name, by the way? It's cute that Jemaine got a band-vibe from the three of you. A good sign, I'd think.

And thanks for the videos Serge. That looked like a bit of an awkward second, when Dave broke in. :oops: :lol: Did he come back to do his other part too?

monster- the pic of you and Jemaine is wonderful! I love how he skootched down and the sweet expression on his face. That's another perfectly framable pic!! :D

Who is the other woman? She looks really familiar to me for some reason.....maybe I've seen her in another pic but.....she reminds me of someone. I just don't know who..... (sorry to be weird...)

Jemaine....your awesomeness cannot be contained within that tiny jacket.....

Well, if I were to reply to that caption in the Facebook photo, the answer as you just saw was obviously no.

Yes, thanks Serge! It was a bit awkward for a moment there. :)

D'oh! :doh:
Of course, I was confused. You're right Laura, I was thinking of Sugalumps! :bang:

Understandable. Believe me, I don't want to give my money to scalpers either. I'm hoping that Ticketmaster will still have some good seats available a few days before the show but the closer the event date becomes, the more nervous I get.

I already have my somber song picked out. If I don't get in, you'll find me in Griffith Park, lip synching to Harry Nilsson's Without You.

Oh, Suzy.....I was thinking he had another part in TMD, plus his part in SL. No worries! It'd be cool to see the added flava of Arj out there slow-jammin his Family Jewels to the crowd, Conchords style- :lol:

I now found what inspired me to do what I did here: viewtopic.php?p=20431#p20431

So, Cankersaurous, this was done in honor of you. (Even though I failed)
