Flight Of The Conchords @ The Greek Theatre, Los Angeles 5/24/09

New Zealand’s fourth-most popular guitar-based digi-bongo a cappella-rap-funk comedy folk duo joined forces for a tour through their deep (one-album-and-some-TV-shows deep) catalog at a sold-out Greek Theatre this past weekend. They played the hits — “The Most Beautiful Girl In The Room,” “Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros,” “Bowie” — and most of the rest, including “Sugarlumps” (which is sort of a response song to “My Humps,” but about balls) during which Bret tried to get some girls onstage, only to scream SECURITY when they took him up on it. Classic Aussie headfake. They’re Aussies, right? Opening the show were Flight Of The Conchords’ occasional side-stars Eugene Mirman (check out his guide to modern life The Will To Whatevs, it’s great) and Arj Barker (who returned during the robot portion of FOTC’s set). Photographer Andrew Youssef took his camera to distill the humor in still frames, so combine those with this setlist to imagine the laffs:

01 “Too Many Dicks (On The Dance Floor)”
02 “Hurt Feelings (Tears Of A Rapper)”
03 “The Most Beautiful Girl In The Room”
04 “Stana”
05 “Jenny”
06 “I Told You I Was Freaky”
07 “I’m Not Crying”
08 “Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros”
09 “Carol Brown (Choir of Ex-Girlfriends)”
10 “Business Time”
11 “Song For Epileptic Dogs”
12 “Think About It”
13 “We’re Both In Love With A Sexy Lady”
14 “Sugalumps”

15 “Pretty Prince of Parties”
16 “Albi The Racist Dragon”
17 “Bowie”
