REVIEW: Flight Of The Conchords In Melbourne!
15 July 2012

New Zealand folk-comedy duo Flight of the Conchords delighted their fans tonight at their long awaited and sold out show at The Plenary in Melbourne. This atypical auditorium style venue played host to a very entertaining evening of multiple genres of music including folk, rap and rock- the common thread being the witty lyricism for which Bret and Jemaine are adept.

Before FOTC took to the stage the audience was invited to take a trip to 'The Bark Side' with unbilled support act Arj Barker, an American stand up comedian who also played 'Dave' in the FOTC television series. Highlights of his set included his Owen Wilson impression and his version of the old 'build a bridge and get over it' adage, he prefers to tell people to 'get a deck of cards and deal with it'.

As much as the crowed were enjoying Arj, it wasn't long before he introduced the duo we were all here to experience live- Flight of the Conchords! The boys took to the stage and immediately broke into dance number 'Too Many Dicks (On The Dancefloor)"- complete with boom-box speaker headpieces! This was followed by 'Robots' and a costume change (to spin their headpieces around revealing a futuristic silver side) for this post-apocalyptic ode to Y2K in the year 2000.

Tales of their crazy rock excess were also peppered throughout the show between songs. Rockstar moments included eating a complimentary muffin at a hotel, and getting stuck in an elevator because they didn't understand how it worked. Perhaps their most notable rockstar moment was an unfortunate incident involving Bret, Jemaine, a FOTC groupie and a fish. While the details were initially sketchy it was revealed later, during the encore song 'Back On The Road', that the boys "left a hole in your soul, and a sole in your hole". Poor Mel!

During 'Bowie' the boys ripped their clothes off to reveal low-cut, sequined, skin-tight leotards that elicited much squealing from the audience. Accompanying Bret and Jemaine on stage for most of the evening was hirsute cellist Nigil Collins who also revealed a concealed sequined ensemble.

Feeling dejected the no one had heckled them to 'Show us your tits', Jemaine was quick to pounce on the heckler who 'Baaa-ed' like a sheep delightedly replying, 'We're going to f**k you later'. Good to hear he lives up to the Kiwi stereotypes!

The two-hour set delivered the star struck fans the chance to see many of their favourite songs live and the boys did not disappoint.

Matt's pictures are the best! On top of audio engineer, hair stylist, tour nanny, I've decided he's also the on-tour photographer.
