Conchords Conquer LES
If you’re not familiar with Flight of the Conchords, it’s time to set the DVR. The quirky HBO show focuses on a struggling New Zealand band, and is set in the Lower East Side. Well, Chinatown to be exact. Most of the establishing scenes are shot near the most unassuming real estate in the neighborhood. You could easily walk past without ever knowing. And that’s the way it should be.
The duo’s home diggs is at 28 Henry Street; their manager works for the New Zealand consulate, set at 232 East Broadway; and they’ve played gigs at the historic 169 Bar.
