Live Music Photo Tuesdays – Flight of the Conchords

Flight of the Conchords’ Rhymenoceros (Bret McKenzie) & Hiphopopotamus (Jemaine Clement) brought their music and comedy act to the Overture Center Sunday night. Fans were eagerly awaiting the show that sold out in roughly 30 minutes, and Bret and Jemaine did not disappoint. The songs come straight from their hit HBO show (Flight of the Conchords) and were very funny, but the duo’s ad-libbing between songs and interaction with the audience was probably my favorite part of the show. While people were shouting out requests during one of the several band/audience interactions, a rowdy fan made the ubiquitous request for “Freebird!!” and Bret and Jemaine paused for only a second before they broke into a hilarious version of the classic Lynyrd Skynyrd song.
