I discovered Flight of the Conchords a few years ago when a song of theirs randomly came on one of my Pandora stations. Since then, I sing (no pun intended) their praises to everyone I know. What I discovered is that for the most part, either you know who the Flight of the Conchords are and you're a big fan, or you don't know who they are.
For those of you who don't know who they are, the Flight of the Conchords are a comedy and music duo from New Zealand comprised of Jemaine Clement (who you may recognize from movies like Dinner for Schmucks and Men in Black 3) and Bret McKenzie (who you may not recognize, but he did win an Academy Award for the song "Man or Muppet" from The Muppet Movie). The two have toured around the world and released multiple award-winning comedy albums, but their fame really grew thanks to their HBO show that ran from 2007-2009.
They will soon be embarking on another tour as part of the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, co-headlining the show with comedian Dave Chappelle. The tour will hit cities across the country including Austin, TX; Pittsburgh, PA; and Irvine, CA.
In honor of their upcoming tour (which you know I will be going to), I decided to put together my top five Flight of the Conchords songs. (Sorry for a few of these videos having some advertisements and a couple bad words sprinkled in there)
#1 - Hurt Feelings
Lady Antebellum — comprised of Hillary Scott, Charles Kelley, and Dave Haywood — announced the country trio would be heading out on the road this fall. This will be Lady Antebellum's second part of their tour to promote their album, "Golden." The group started The Lady Antebellum Tour in May and ended it in June to allow enough time for lead singer Hillary Scott to have her baby in July. (Which means she was performing on stage at 7 and 8 months pregnant — impressive!)
They'll resume the tour, this time, under the moniker The Take Me Downtown Tour 2013. The tour 2013 begins Nov. 8, with Kip Moore and Kacey Musgraves as the opening acts. Click the cut for the full list of dates.
