Alright time to get this write-up finished finally...


So my road trip buddy and myself get to Wellington in the early afternoon day of the show. (It was weird going on a Conchordsy road trip without adding more members of our party along the way. ;D #cloud9# ) I will quick say that I just loved Wellington. It was a bit of a shock to us driving into a full-fledged city with one-way streets and horrendous parking and everything, considering we were on country roads and much smaller cities for pretty much the entire time we had been in New Zealand. We didn't get the chance to check out Auckland. So being in a city again was a nice break from the endless pristine rolling hills. #haha#

We weren't as lucky this time when it came to the location of our hotel in relation to the venue, but central Welly isn't that big so it was maybe a ten minute walk. We left pretty early so we would have plenty of time to find the Michael Fowler Center which we did no problem. It was right at the beginning of Cuba Street! So we took the time to check out Cuba (our first time out of many) and got a Kebab before the show. This notion was equal parts appropriate, geeky, and cliche. #lol# (Later we ate a place called "AbraKEBABra" #rofl# )

We get to the venue about an hour before the show starts, and I'm far too excited to check out the FOTC-themed cocktails.

Let me know if you see Sir Ian McKellen or Martin Freeman in any of these! #shakefist# Yeah, we didn't see any of the star-studded audience, but we did pass Bill Connolly on the street a couple days later!

Image

Image


I had a Port Nick Gimlet since it's apparently Bret's fave. It reminded me of a lemon drop martini only not as strong so it went down a lot easier.

After a couple visits to the merch table (yes, we may have gone through the merch line twice) we head up to our stage door to get to our seats. We noticed you can buy ice cream at this venue as well. #haha#

Image

Image

The place was beautiful. #ded#



We settle in and before long Arj comes out to warm up the crowd. Overall it was a lot of the same material we heard in New Plymouth which I expected. He did add a bit about video gaming, and how the games are education and through his World War II video game he learned how at the D-Day battle site... if you go to the cottage in the far East... and break open the lock with your gun... and find the stack of hay in the corner... you'll find unlimited grenades!

Arj also did a bit at both the shows about how his doctor wanted him to use artificial tears everyday after his eye surgery. He asked "You want want me to cry everyday? What do you want me to do- watch Marley and Me on an infinite loop?" Then he'd ask someone in the crowd, "Have you seen Marley and Me? You haven't? Well it's very very sad. I don't want to give too much away, but it's a sad film. Let's just say the sequel to "Marley and Me" is just called "Me". #rofl#

Arj leaves the stage and we wait again for the main show. We did see a group in front of us come back from meeting Arj and positively geeking out about it during the intermission. #love3# Then the lights go down again... #excited2#

I won't repeat myself when it comes to the newer bits in their show like I did in the New Plymouth thread. But I'll definitely try to recall all the songs and unique bits of banter for sure.

Here is the set list I nabbed after the show, which I'll get into later:

Image

But of course this isn't 100% what happened... Bret began to play Foux Du Fafa but Jemaine went, "Nah, I don't want to play that one." which received a groan out of me and my friend... that was one of the songs we wanted to hear and Jemaine totally cock blocked us! And I don't remember Bud Driver's Song being performed that night, but I could be wrong about that. Out of all the songs after Sexy Ladies / Sugalumps they only sang Hotties. They also did a partial performance of Prince of Parties which I'll get into later. XD

To start from the top, after Too Many Dicks and Bret goes into how Lady Gaga had inspired them to do the "costume change" which I thought was cute. After Robots they get into the muffin banter and when Jemaine goes to answer Bret's call about the muffin Jem immediately goes "Whoop, whoop- muffin police!" And Bret puts his hands in the air. Jemaine then explains that Bret knows there isn't a muffin police and that he was just joking. Bret then further explains with, "Yes, I'm aware that there is only one police- the actual police." #lol#

When they start talking about the lift story, they go into how they used the emergency phone and the guy on the line told them to just press a button and the door will open. Bret explains, "That guy saved our lives. He was a godsend. I think about him everyday." After the crowd's laughter died down Jemaine replies with "I think about that guy everyday too, but that's because we tell this story everyday." #rofl#

A little tidbit on Hurt Feelings, and this is probably nothing new, but Bret got a little full on for one of the lyrics:

#bret# : "Get me a small man's wetsuit... BITCH!"

... which made me laugh way more than it should have.

I mentioned this in one of the other gig threads, but I'll go ahead and put it here to be consistent. During Inner City Pressure, after Jemaine sings about never being a concert flautist, Jem whips out a flute and starts playing it really badly. #lol# And I don't think it was right after he sang that lyric too, I think it was later in the song because I remember thinking "WHAT IS HE DOING?... Oh, he's trying to play the flute! #rofl# "

During Business Time, and sorry if this had been captured already in a video that I haven't watched yet, when Jemaine is singing about taking off "that amorphous tshirt" and "granny panties" he added a bit that was new to me where he goes "take off that beige bra, that sort of matches your skin but not really... it just makes you look like you don't have any nipples... take it off baby... aw yeah, there are your nipples, girl!"

After or around the time Jemaine totally shoots down Foux Du Fafa, they ask the audience what songs they would like to hear. They were several shout outs before a guy in the back yells "PROSTITUTE!!!" which made everyone start laughing. Jemaine quick replied with, "What did you just call me?" #lol# Then either Jem or Bret opted that they heard "Prince of Parties" which they don't play often, even though they played it the other night. They start playing it and everyone seemed into it but Bret stopped midway through and goes, "I don't think that sounded very good. Did you guys like it?" And I think people cheered but I guess they decided to end it there.

Sometime in the middle of the show, Jemaine I think is the one that mentions that they've had a few lulls in the show, which they try to avoid. Later someone yelled "I love lulls!" and Jemaine said, "Good, because we're having one right now."

On the topic of heckling, a lady on the ground floor yelled something, I couldn't make out what and I don't think Jemaine could either because he said that there must be a Hobbit in the house. #haha# He then goes into how half The Hobbit cast must be here, which is a lot more hilarious in retrospect. #rofl# (#cry#) Then of course Jem is the one the bring up that there is an elf extra in the house too, while looking at Bret, which got a big cheer from the crowd.

Sometime during the show, the spotlights turned blue, possibly to represent being inside a teardrop, and Jemaine goes, "Are you lighting us with two giant glowworms?" #love3#

Jemaine or Bret then ask the audience if they have any underwear they'd like to throw on stage, and someone starts swinging the underwear they just bought from the merch stand. Jemaine says, "Well you obviously just bought those." and Bret continues with, "That's actually ok to throw up here, we'd prefer that over anything". But the whole thing reminded me of underwear thrown during the Vegas show in 2009, and after they're thrown Jem says "They're clearly brand new." #haha#

Bret and Jemaine are about to go into another song when Jemaine goes, "We don't do this one very often. This one is for you guys." And I think it's Bus Driver's Song until they ask Matt to come out to do drums. Then I hear it. Once I realize they're about to sing Hotties I audibly gasped. I never thought I'd hear this song live, and they did an amazing performance of it. I really could have started crying. It just really made the show complete, and we were just on Cuba Street (having a Kebab of all things!) only a couple hours prior, and hearing them sing about it, just made the entire New Zealand trip that much more of a reality. #heart# #heart# #heart#

I don't think many of the audience members had heard the song before, or at least no one by me... Since they don't have a didgeridoo, Bret does an impression of one into the mic when it came to that part of the song and I had my hands over my mouth to keep from laughing out loud. I usually don't have to do that during a Conchords show, but when the rest of the audience is silent, any laughter that I let escape would have seemed dickish.

They sing Epileptic Dogs and we get to the part of the show with audience participation. Jemaine has everyone's arms waving side to side and Bret hasn't gotten to the segregated singing part just yet, he just wants people to be singing the main chorus. When Bret quiets down to hear the audience he reacts with "Wow, no one is singing." Jemaine: "I think I've confused everyone with my arm waving." But he continued to wave his arms for a few extra beats. #haha# When we got to the group singing, the guys and girls on the ground floor were singing "Think about the epileptic dogs" in their deep and higher pitched voices respectively. The right side of the tier was following Nigel's woofing, and then it got to us, the left side of the tier, and Jemaine goes, "Ok, now you guy... I want you to go... "YEAHYEAHYEAHYEAHYEAHYEAHYEAHYEAHYEAH!!!"

#rofl# #rofl# #rofl# That's the best way I can describe it, it was just a string of "YEAHS!" I think he thought of right there on the spot. Well I was too busy laughing to get out any good "YEAHS!" and Jemaine could tell because he was getting out of his seat trying to get us to shout these "YEAHS!" with his fist in the air and everything trying to cheer us on. Oh my god it was so funny. #jem# #heart#

After the song, Jemaine tells the audience how we're not quite ready as a band yet. He then continues with some advice saying, "Do some shows here that don't bring in a lot of people, then go over to America and do some shows there and gain some popularity, then come back here to do some shows that people actually come see." Which got a good amount of applause from the audience.

Before singing On The Road, Bret and Jemaine go into how they have to be hitting the road soon and someone in the audience yells "Stay here!" and the Jemaine quips with, "We live here." #rofl# Toward the end of On The Road, after they mention "the passed out groupie with a goldfish stuck in her ass", they are fading out and Jemaine may have said "a grouper in your pooper" and I know Bret said "a snapper in your crapper". #lol# Oh god.

During the encore Jemaine mentions that it's Nigel's birthday and we all wished him a Happy Birthday. #love3# Jump to them singing Sexy Lady and when Jemaine goes to stop Nigel he continues with "I know it's your birthday dog, but I need you stop playing." Which got a huge "AWWW!" from the audience. Bret goes "Jemaine, we're losing the audience!" which makes Jemaine continue singing "It's ok we got Nigel a card and everything, we'll give it to you after this song, dog."

Jump to the end of the show because unfortunately I can't remember anything really standing out during Sugalumps. I do like the addition of "This lady is so glad to be staring at my gonads" though.

Well we start funneling out of the venue and I don't know why this didn't occur to me after the New Plymouth show, but I'm suddenly on the mission to get the set list from the stage... which should be difficult to do when you're like third row from the back like we were.

Before we exit out our stage door I only saw one person nab a set list. I saw a few people stand around the stage but nothing was really happening outside if that. We start to go downstairs and the genius that I am misses the floor to get to the ground floor, so I have to go back up a flight of steps. I go to a pair of doors that leads back into the venue and a woman who works there comes from inside going "That's everyone!" and is about to close the door. I stop her and lie that I forgot something inside. She let's me in and I go to the stage which has about ten people tearing it down at this point, but Matt is still there and close to the stage's edge. I asked Matt if there was a set list still there and he proceeds to hand it to me. #excited# #excited# #excited# I tell him thank you, then nerdily wished Nigel a Happy Birthday since he was close by.

I turn around to find the woman that let me in is about ten feet away from me! So she saw they whole thing, and the fact that I did not forget anything. I walk past her saying "Thank you so much, I'm sorry." and she just did kind of a "Oh that's alright. 8-) " #haha# But I didn't care at that point, I was just happy to have the set list. It just made the night complete.

Dear Courtney,

just for that moment when I was reading your story, I was taken to Wellington (maybe I took timetripping acid with a picture of TARDIS on it) and saw everything with my own eyes. Thank you #notworthy# #notworthy#

Oh yeah, didn't they play Frodo at some of the shows in 2010? Maybe that was just another song Jemaine didn't want to play. #haha# #shakefist#

You reminded me of "New Zealand, Like Lord of the Rings" and considering the people we saw and our visit to Hobbiton, the poster doesn't lie.

I actually don't know/remember what Bret's brother looks like. He was younger and had a beard I believe, so anything is possible. #lol# But I don't think it was him. They actually had a bunch of the Port Nick Gimlets ready to hand to people at the bar, so I couldn't see anyone making them at the time.

Same. Since I've never seen the movie, because I know I'd just be setting myself up for a sobfest, I was able to cut all emotional ties to that movie and laugh at Arj when he'd make the joke. If any movie nowadays is about an animal, likely to die by the end of it, I won't watch it.

Maybe! I just love how Bret is the more apologetic one when it comes to their rapping songs like Hurt Feelings and R vs H. And then he yells "BITCH!" with no "sorry, sorry, that got a little full on" or anything and it was amazing.

#ded# #ded# #ded# OMG. I was obsessed with Glo-Worms when I was a kid! #loveeyes#


I think he meant the glowworms from the waitomo caves:

Well the lights themselves were blue, so my mind jumped to that.

HILARIOUS. I would have been mortified! #rofl# #angel# #blowkiss#


I was for a moment, but then I was so happy to have the setlist that I didn't even care! ;D

They actually had a bunch of the Port Nick Gimlets ready to hand to people at the bar, so I couldn't see anyone making them at the time.


I thought you probably would've mentioned it if you'd spoken to Justin. I'm not sure I would know him on sight either. I think the only time I've ever seen him was the picture in the news article that ran when he opened his bar. And the Figwit documentary. #haha#

onlyalways wrote:Same. Since I've never seen the movie, because I know I'd just be setting myself up for a sobfest, I was able to cut all emotional ties to that movie and laugh at Arj when he'd make the joke. If any movie nowadays is about an animal, likely to die by the end of it, I won't watch it.


Ugh. The kid added some stupid dog movie to our Netflix streaming queue and started watching it the other day. I wasn't watching, but I could hear what was happening. Something happened to the dog (don't know what), and just listening to it made me get all weepy. I looked over at the kid and he was just sitting there --> #cry# . The dog was fine in the end, but the damage had already been done at that point. #fingerwave# I can't deal.

I'm not sure Jemaine and I are on good terms anymore tbh. >:(

I am clearly still obsessed because my inner child came flying out. "GLO-WORMS!!! I need to buy five of them right now OMGGGG. #wah# Maybe I still have a few in storage!!"

The ones from the cave are nice too, I guess.

#thumbsup# Yeah, I definitely would've gotten over it. Like, I'll never see this woman again, but I'LL BE BURIED WITH THIS SETLIST. #haha#

I totally had this EXACT Glo-Worm! #excited# #love3# This is part of what made me so excited to go to the glow worm caves. #haha#

I loved reading this recap too, Courtney! #cloud9# Not to be lame, but Sylwia and Sam picked out all the good parts. I think maybe my most favorite is #bret#: BITCH. #rofl# #redlove# Oh, and the vocal didjeridoo! #ded#

This is probably hard to gauge since it was his birthday, but did it seem like the audience was at all familiar with Nigel? I guess the crowds at the WIUO shows I went to were a bit older (and younger #lol#) than what we usually see at FOTC shows. (I don't know why I've been so hopeful for Nigel fans. #lol# Probably because he's awesome! #buttrock# )

As for the Hobbit cast, weren't some (if not all) of them sitting relatively close to the stage? Maybe the guys could see them, but yeah, I bet they got them some comp muffins tickets.

Hmm, from memory I can't really tell a difference between the audience's reaction in New Zealand compared to the US and UK. If anything the US may have been louder, but we're more loud in general. #haha# My gut is telling me that the NZ shows I went to the audience wasn't anymore familiar with Nigel than in the States/UK.
