They raised a nice bit of cash for the school.

Maybe Bono was into this, also... Go FOTC!

Edit: After the Bono reference, I did some research, and alas http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sy57CP6W9kE
It makes me dislike the cello further.

Anyways, "Sexy Lady" was one of my favorite songs from S2, and I sorta-kinda (OK, I admit, it was full-on) gasped when the lady gasped.

So giving and so down-to-earth even with all of the success they've had so far and are yet to receive. I wish only good things for them and their families!

State house? Like Section 8 housing?

They sure did raise a lot of cash! Holy cow! :clap:

I have no idea what Section 8 housing is, but its Gov/state owned and you rent off them. We call it council housing over here. The term is being phased out for something else but its not as well used even now. And its been in use for over a decade :lol: In fact I forget what the term for it is now.

Ah housing association. That's it.

Info on state housing in NZ here

More you tube goodness.

Its a REALLY bad clip, but the sound is okay. You get a feel though of what the venue looked like though.

Does anyone know anyone that was there? Do we have an idea of the set list? I would love to know what songs they played from Season Two, and which ones may be on the upcoming tour, even though I won't be.

Section 8 housing is a government subsidized rent program. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Section_8_(housing)

Thanks for the clips, prettyrobyngirl! I wish that last one was longer, they sounded awesome. Sorry you don't get to see them, but at least you are doing some interesting travelling.

Aaaahhh, SheWolf! :prayer: Bless you! Jemaine looks SMOKIN' in every pic I've seen of this show so far. I almost can't handle it. :help: :thud:

As much as I am a fan of scruff I've gotta say Jem cleans up nice.

He's still kinda scruffy. He's neatly scruffy. He's the perfect combination of cleaned up and scruffy. Blather blather drool drool eeeeeeeeee..... (temporarily loses ability to form words)

Oh yeah, stubble, well that is a necessity in my book, particularly with those bits of silver in it. Neatly scruffy is indeed an ideal combo. And he didn't wear jeans either so I guess this is his laid back casual version of dressed up.
