Last week on Memorial Day we went to see our favorite (or the only?) comedy band from New Zealand, Flight of the Conchords, and it was fantastic. The concert, at the Berkeley Community Theatre, started late because apparently there were problems with fire alarms in a nearby building, but once that was settled, it was a solid couple hours of hilarity. Arj Barker opened with a great stand-up routine, and we’re definitely going to try and see him when he comes to Cobb’s in July.
Here’s the set list from the concert, in order:
Too Many Dicks on the Dance Floor
The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)
I Told You I Was Freekie
I’m Not Crying
Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros
Foux du Fafa
“We’re Both in Love with a Sexy Lady” goes in there somewhere, but I forget exactly where. I was taking notes on my phone and was probably overtaken by the aforementioned hilarity.
