Er, well if you haven't seen the Conchords in concert, and you're somewhat familiar with their brand of comedy, then you really should take some time off to go and see them. The act is very charming and has a funky lo-fi vibe to it, from the toy piano to the do-it-yourself robot costumes they wore in the opening number [Too Many Dicks on the Dance Floor].
The best song they played on the night was one that I wasn't too familiar with, and that was Stana. It seemed like they were adding verses to the song as they went, and several times we thought the whole song was going to fly off the rails. But they kept it together, although Jemaine mentioned they had yet to come up with a proper ending for it.
The Conchords were joined on stage by some dude called Nigel, who plays with the NZ Symphony Orchestra. Before he came out Bret told the audience they had "a very special guest" with them. At that moment several thousand voices shouted, "Murray!" We were really amped thinking Murray was going to make an appearance and sing Leggy Blonde. However, it wasn't Murray; it was Nigel. Jemaine remarked, "Oh, thanks. How do you think that makes us feel?"
We also bought a couple of shirts. Diane got one that had Band Meeting on it; I got one that had Too Many Dicks on the Dance Floor on it. Somehow it just appealed to my sense of humour.
With any luck they'll release a concert DVD compiled from all of the venues they've played on their US tour. It would certainly be something cool to watch from time to time and if you missed them it would be the next best thing.
