A little ditty about that after party:


Flight path

HBO stars Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, better known as Flight of the Conchords, stayed up late around Boston this past weekend. After the duo performed to a sold-out crowd at the Agganis Arena, they were honored by - and then partied with - staffers at the Harvard Lampoon. Joining the New Zealanders for the after-show schmoozefest (which lasted until 2 a.m.) were "Conchords" costars Kristen Schaal and formerly local comic Eugene Mirman, both of whom opened the Agganis show earlier that night. Other late-night revelers included Randy and Jason Sklar, twin comedians who have appeared on ESPN Classic, VH1, "Grey's Anatomy," and "Entourage."

The Conchords fly high, comically speaking
By Sarah Rodman
Globe Staff / April 21, 2009

When a comedy act reaches arena-level popularity it usually has the slick, rat-a-tat edge of an arena rock band.

On Friday night at the Agganis Arena, Flight of the Conchords was much more like an indie rock band that has somehow found itself on the big stage, all scruffy charm and three-quarters baked improvisation. The New Zealand comedy duo, which has its eponymous HBO series to thank for drawing upward of 7,000 people to the show, played a rambling, sidesplitting 90-minute set armed only with acoustic guitars, comically rinky-dink keyboards and drum kit, and their estimable wits. Oh yeah, and the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, a.k.a. cellist Nigel.

"We're a band basically. And in between we do some talking," explained one half of the Conchords Bret McKenzie early on in the show. "It's talking like you would do, just more professional," chimed in his partner in rhyme and HBO primetime Jemaine Clement.

Much of the pair's humor comes from the contrast between their polite, deadpan exterior and their overwrought emoting during their tunes. One minute McKenzie was imperceptibly quitting the band - he helpfully informed us of this - and the next he and Clement were gushing about "Hurt Feelings" via an all-nonsense gangsta rap. They also cycled through the many voices of David Bowie on "Bowie" and got their disco on with the poor female-to-male nightclub ratio lament "Too Many [Men] on the Dancefloor." One of the night's highlights was the spaghetti western epic "The Ballad of Stana," the tale of a sinister gunslinger whose name is "the word Satan with the letters cleverly rearranged to sound like an acceptable name."

Fan favorites translated well outside of the context of the show including the sexy soul jams "Business Time" and "Sugalumps."

The middle slot was ably held by Kristen Schaal, who plays the Conchords' loose-screw superfan Mel on the TV series. Mining absurdist territory that was funny in both the "ha-ha" and "strange" departments, she scored laughs with, among other bits, the secret thoughts of a well-used mattress.

Locally grown funnyman Eugene Mirman, who also appears on the HBO show, killed the opening slot with his equally quirky musings.
