I just received the following information via email:

Dear Flight of the Conchord ticket holders

Get your best pair of jandals on because the wait is over - Bret and Jemaine are back on
stage together - and Positively Wellington Venues and Ticketek are looking forward to
hosting you at this much awaited concert.

We know seeing this almost award-winning fourth-most-popular folk duo will be told to
generations to come and so we have come up with ways to ensure this experience a
legendary one.

You're invited!
• We decided what better way to “Rock the Party” than with a few Bret and Jemaine themed cocktails, and you’re invited!
• From 6:00pm our FOTC cocktail bar will open in the Renouf Foyer at the Michael Fowler Centre and Bret’s brother Justine McKenzie will be behind the bar shaking up some cocktails.
• Try “Business Time”, “Hurt Feelings” and “Freaky” along with a host of hot Foux du Fafa bar snacks.
• At the bottom of this PDF is a voucher for “buy 4 cocktails & get a free pizza” – print it out and bring it along to get the deal – the voucher is only valid for pre show redemption.


There is some info about what time the doors open, etc. then it goes on:

Clothing
• Wear socks with your jandals as it may be cold and we don’t want anyone to get frostbite.
• You can buy a Flight of the Conchord t-shirt if your mates think what you are wearing is just uncool. The merchandising stand will be outside the FOTC Cocktail Bar.
• Make sure you don’t bring an umbrella – everyone in Wellington knows that would just be stupid.

The weather forecast for Wellington that evening calls for rain. Maybe I'll be the stupid one...but I'lll be taking an umbrella. :geek:

Ooh, how exciting! Are you going to try the FOTC cocktails and bar snacks? If you are, you should definitely let us know how they taste like and it would be great if you could take pics of the cocktails, snacks and merchandise on sale. :)
Not long to go now! :supz: :D

That is so cool! 8) :drinkers: Maybe you could get Justin (not Justine, lol) pose for a pic with you, too. :)

Grab a 'menu' if they have one, please, especially if it gives what's in each drink. Sounds like fun! Have a blast!! :D

Well Tynant is in Wellie as I type - and probably in the foyer of the Michael Fowler centre right now at those pre-show drinkies she mentioned!
*jealous* (Where is the jealousy emoticon?!)
We've been emailing about her trip and she told me she almost missed her flight to NZ :nails: (meant to arrive this morning on the day of the show), because her flight from Washington was delayed 2hrs! :shock:
She made it though, and we're going to meet up down in Wellie in a few days. YAY! :nana: Can't wait to meet another WTF'er!
When I see her I'll tell her she HAS to come here and tell all on WTF!, can't leave you lot hanging eh?
I'm so excited for her - and me - only a few more days till the show I'm going to! :biggrin:

OMG! :shock: Poor tynant must have been so stressed! I hope it was a great time that included a meet and greet. :) Can't wait for the rundown and pics!

H- I'm so happy for you getting to see them live finally and getting to meet another WTFer! :D You know I've been crossing everything for you to get a meet and greet as well...one where they're in no rush to take off and you get lots of talk-photo-and-hug time. :hug:

Hey I've got that blue T shirt. :) H, did you try to get tix for Wellington or no? When are you going?

I really don't like those new robot heads.

Yeah, what's up with those round openings? And no thingies sticking out the sides or red 'eyebrows'?! :hrmpf: :wink:

The robot heads look like washing machines.

I think they are supposed to be speakers a la H's avatar for Too Many Dicks. I read somewhere that they turn the boxes around at some point and they become the robot heads.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for clearing that up, YisBot!

You can see the robot heads in all their glory below ;)

Hometown show for Flight of the Conchords
New material wows fans in Wellington

Last updated 05:00 20/06/2012

MAARTEN HOLL/Fairfax NZ
CREATIVE DUO: Flight of the Conchords' Jemaine Clement, left, and Bret McKenzie at the Michael Fowler Centre, in their first Wellington appearance on a national tour.

The hometown Flight of the Conchords boys, Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, returned to the capital last night for the first of four Wellington concerts on their first national tour.

The award-winning pair, who sold out Wellington's 1700-seat Michael Fowler Centre three times over, played lots of new and funny material, said 25-year-old Irishman Conor Loughran.

Jeff Harris, self-employed, from Ngaio, said: "They're an international act and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves."

Anthony Pratt, an Auckland builder, and Thirza Moors, a policy analyst, both said the show was very creative. "They're very talented, and the number of musical instruments they played was amazing," Ms Moors said.

Clement and McKenzie have performed at the landmark Hollywood Bowl, New York's Radio City Music Hall and London's Wembley Arena.

On this tour they have already performed in Hawke's Bay, Hamilton, Auckland and New Plymouth.

Comedian Arj Barker provided the warm-up act.

The band will perform the final show of their tour at TSB Bank Arena on Monday July 2.
