Flight of the Conchords Live in Boston



My lady and I went to Boston on Friday to see Flight of the Conchords live at Agganis Arena (Boston University). I have to say that the show was truly amazing and warranted my first blog entry in a while. We got there and bought our tour t-shirts and then went inside. When we saw our seats we were giddy, 12th row center floor seats. It pays to sit prompted at the computer with the pre-sale code at 9:59am. The show was sold out soon after pre-sale. It was a sea of dorks, geeks and artsy peeps. I felt right at home. We bonded with a young guy sitting in front of us who was so excited I thought he might start jumping up and down in his seat. He was getting pretty upset when it was about 8pm and the seats were not filled and the show had not started yet, it was pretty funny in a cute way.

A short write up was in the Boston herald about the show:

Here is the rundown of the show and some video entertainment to accompany the 300+ photos I uploaded this weekend. I have to say, these albums are the edited narrowed down version of the photos we took that night.
(Photo album links: FOC Album 1, FOC Album 2, FOC Album 3, FOC Album 4, FOC Album 5, FOC Album 6, FOC Album 7).


Opening acts: Eugene Mirman (landlord) and Kristen Schaal (Mel)
Both were very funny. I am still hunting for a clip of Kristen's character, the sexy librarian. Being a librarian myself, this is required for my online video library.

Flight of the Conchords opened in robot suits but played Too Many Dicks on the Dance Floor. The show consisted of the usual songs and banter all FOC fans have come to know and love. After Sugalumps, they left the stage and the entire arena was a giant standing ovation. They came back out and played 3 more songs, which according to what I read about other shows, was very lucky. We must have been a very good audience.
The only thing that could have made this show better would be having met Bret and Jemaine. Someday...someday. I found some videos of performances from that evening that I wanted to share. I love that I now have some videos to help remember such a great night. These are all from other fans who attended the show so I apologize in advance for any shoddy camera work or screaming giggling girls in the background. Enjoy! (PS There is some naughty language at times in case the kids are around).
