Cleaning my paper mess, I've found a receipt for the kilt towel for Nigel ;D . I haven't thrown it away yet [image] .


I still have the receipt for when we bought Jem and Bret's! :D [image] [image]

I don't know why I have it- Laura paid for them! [image]


You guys! [image]

We also have the photographic evidence of us 'testing' the kilts before the show... [image]

Nothing to brag about. I just wanted to add some oil to the fire of fun ;D . It's not the same as challenging someone to that thing on the horses with those pointy things and battle to the death with those things with the point each other with those pointy things.

Eep, I loved that song, now who've you been challenging to a duel with the horse with the pointy thin, you know, the really sharp pointy thing?

A review:


Saw Flight of the Conchords live about a month ago (almost exactly a month ago in fact) and for some reason it's taken me this long to post about it properly. I fail at prompt internet-usage. Anyway. It was, unsurprisingly, a hilarious and highly entertaining evening. The boys were looking particularly yummy, and the songs sounded fantastic. Many more instruments on stage than I had expected (and some that didn't get used - they don't follow their own set list much from what I can tell. I'm pretty sure we got an unplanned rendition of Albi, and Jemaine was constantly mouthing song titles at Bret, who either would nod or look at him like he was a madman.)

Highlights of the gig:

* Heckler: “Where’s Mel?” Jermaine: “She’s fictional. So she’s hanging out with Bart Simpson and... Taggart. (cue huge cheer from the crowd as Scottish crowds do when you mention anything remotely Scottish.)
* Three new songs. Three! (Fave moment: "I said, 'I don't have any I.D. on me / Who even carries I.D. in 1353?!' / 'I maketh not the rules,' quoth he.")
* Jenny! Woo! I love that song.
* Sparkly jumpsuits.
* Tiny piano!
* The New Zealand orchestra. His name is Matt. He does odd jobs (but not strange tasks).
* Three part audience singalong to Epileptic Dogs.
* Many other things that have fallen out of my brain at this moment in time.

Ever-so-slight disappointments of the evening:

* No Bus Driver's Song. Denied yet again.
* No keytar. (But there were instruments up there I could not identify for the life of me.)

My cheeks hurt from laughing by the end of the night. And the crowd was on fine form. Not too much random heckling. Found a few good youtube clips of the show - so here's kilt towels and a very different version of Sugalumps.

And of course I had to go in a homemade Conchords t-shirt. Who would I be if I didn't? This was my first attempt at a two-tone print. It required two stencils, which didn't end up matching as precisely as required, so it was a slightly aggravating process. I think I ended up making t-shirt!Jemaine look far grumpier than he did in the original photo. But it's something I'm going to keep experimenting with.

The importance of knowing your audience
[image] ‘We sometimes talk too much. People will shout, “Sing a song!” The people never yell out: “Do some banter!” We’re disappointed that the banter isn’t more popular, that there aren’t banter requests. We’re looking to release a single of banter.’

Everyone was shouting out requests for songs and someone shouted out 'the bank!'
Jemaine said something about everyone shouting out song requests but that someone had requested a piece of 'classic banter' [image]
They then proceeded to tell the went to the bank story! [image]


Yes, we appreciate banter :D.

"Our show" - they're a band (from Texas! :o) called Hyperbubble that were also touring Europe at the time and they performed at Henry's Cellar Bar on the 14th and The Flying Duck on the 15th.

ADD: found them (and those photos) on fb. This is what she said about Jemaine:
Hyperbubble: Jemaine's "got it goin on"! A very nice chap and good taste in music and art too, as we all ended up at Mono Records, Trongate 103 gallery, and finally at our club venue after their ConChords gig in Glasgow. I mentioned our gig and would like to think he came out especially to see us?!! xo Jess

and the next photo is of a kilt towel! #rofl#
