Word on the street is beloved Lower East Side New Zealanders Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement will be present stateside this year. Yep, the motherflippin’ comedic duo, who called the area home in HBO’s Flight of the Conchords are gearing up for a US Tour – basically their first real tour in five years. Dates have yet to be confirmed, but it’s welcomed news, given the rumors that flew through the internet over the fall, promising a third season of the favorite cult TV series (which were quickly dismissed).
The band may also unleash new material while on the road. “I really don’t like the studio part of music,” said Clement, who revealed the news at Sundance while promoting his new film, People, Places, Things. “I more enjoy playing live and letting others take care of the recording.”
Sounds good to us.
Meanwhile, the creators of FOTC along with Jemaine Clement have been kickstarting a vamp comedy that promises to “set the record straight” on the misinformation that has been going around regarding vampires.
Perhaps Hollywood has convinced you that vampire life in the modern world is just one big teen romance fantasy. Where young love can blossom even in a cold and motionless heart and everyone just happens to have really great abs.
What We Do in the Shadows will open at Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema and also in LA, but the hope is to go national. More on the project here.
And if you can’t wait on either of those things, watch this again. Still holds up.
