What has taken me so long to write about a band and show I totally love?
While they are enjoying celebrity in the U.S. they have been making waves in their native New Zealand for quite awhile. These guys are just so brilliant. Their show is currently on hiatus due to the writing strike but HBO has renewed their season. I heard that they are in New Zealand writing for the show and they also have a U.S. tour coming up. The tickets flew like hot cakes selling out in minutes.
Bret….Jemaine….why aren’t you coming to Florida? Seriously, Florida is not a good venue for concerts. Floridians just don’t respond like they do in New York or in L.A.
Lyrically these guys are hilarious, musically they are flippin’ awesome. Here is one of the funniest songs clipped from their show:
I listened to their new album and of course I love it. Although I still prefer it with the background noise going on during the show because its hilarious. Their music has a blend of comedy, hip hop, rap, pop, folk, dance, I don’t know how they do it.
These guys have given me a big reason to look forward to the 2009 TV schedule.
