May 7- Austin, Texas

FYI- Anyone looking for tickets, I noticed lots of them on Craigslist Austin. While some are jacked up, there are quite a few that are at face value.

Hm - SW do you pay for your flickr account? I'm wondering if you get access to more pictures if you pay for your account. I just can't believe of all those cameras I saw that night there'd be 3 pictures from the show online.

I believe that the photo and article/bio are the same things that you can find on the SubPop website.

Yeah I have a pro account you have to pay for it - you get alot more space.

I think this may be from Austin but as we have no reportage from there I'm not sure. Great pic.

First, to stay on topic: The golden pants made a return for this show! Also, someone yelled "Texan Odyssey!" and the guys made up an impromptu song called, "Take your shirts off, Austin"

Off topic - SW - Does it give you access to everyone's pictures? Because I do a search for the Detroit gig every day and I get like 10 pictures. Only 3 of which are from the show - the rest are pictures of the theater's ceiling and whatnot. I am just wondering if you get special access to pictures with a paid account versus just searching the site

No you don't get special acces to pix. The Detroit show is simply this year's Town Hall (meaning last year very few pix turned up from their first night at Town Hall & virtually no meet and greet pix even though we know there was a M&G right Nancy? :wink: )

Well - I'm thinking I'm going to steal some really good pictures from other shows just so I have a nice picture to put in my collage. I have a really good one from the Detroit show with their robot heads on during TMD, but I want a really good one of the three of them on stage. I've found some from other shows, but none from the Detroit one. I'm thinking of using one from Austin (Jemaine's wearing a sweater :heart: ), with the rainbow lights from Albi. But I'm not married to this idea...what do you guys think?

Hey...didn't you like my slightly-blurry pics? :rolleyes: Michael got some good ones. How about Ardy- or did she not take pics during the show? Hm, she hasn't posted hers yet....

Just me...but I'd only want pics from our show, perfect or not. Tho using only 1 excellent one is a good idea, too. :) Maybe that lovely rock-star one of them holding their instruments high......

Concert Review: Flight of the Conchords

Well, that was a rather underwhelming hour and 40 minutes, as Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie took their 1,000-capacity act to the 3,000-seat Bass Concert Hall Thursday night. Because of a hit show on HBO, Flight of the Conchords have inspired a growing cult audience of college-aged kids, but it was evident at the sold out show that they’ve skipped a few steps up the ladder of stagemanship. This was a crowd with a big crush, but FOTC couldn’t deliver beyond a few charming adlib moments.

A few tunes, including “Ballad of Stana,” an epic old West number “with duration issues,” “Albi (the Racist Dragon) and the faux French bossa nova ‘Foux du fa fa,’ were complete wastes of time, as this musical parody duo has been coddled by fan woship. Can that lame “Busdriver’s Song,” too. This set was in bad need of tightening up.

The main problem was evident early in the set, as “The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)” lost its subtle grace: the vocals were so loud that the guitars were drowned out. “Jenny,” the ode to mistaken identity, was another casualty of a mix that chose comedy over music. Fortunately, those two songs have been so YouTubed into the audience’s consciousness that they went over spectacularly.

The show was at its funniest when the duo (augmented by “the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra,” as their cellist was introduced) conversed between songs in a mix of planned patter and improvisation. Noticing a couple of empty seats in the first row, the pair stared at the tiny defeat, restoring their TV persona as a couple of lovable losers. When a woman arrived 45 minutes into the set to claim one of the seats, Clement and McKenzie made her part of the show, filling her in on what she missed, which was really not much.

It wasn’t until the end of the show that FOTC turned in any kind of interesting performance, leaving their stools to tease “the ladies” on “Sugalumps” and encoring with “Robots” and “Business Time.” There was also a funny bit about how the audience, which kept throwing t-shirts onstage, should’ve been tossing panties. There was delight in the deadpan all night.

But then they came out for one encore too many, a throwaway “Demon Woman” that they had no business dressing up in costumes. When Clement apologized to those who “were relieved that we were over” he was speaking to me.

Comedian Eugene Mirman, who has a small recurring role in “Flight of the Conchords,” opened the show with a too loud set that hinged on an angry letter he wrote to Delta Airlines. They may have lost his luggage, but they gave him a funny bit.
