A Tribute to the Innovators! Beck, Har Mar Superstar, Ian Sevonious, Greg Dulli w/Twilight Singers (+ reunited Afghan Whigs) perform Flight of the Conchords covers Monday night at Town Hall.

“The Conchord boys were breaking ground with the hyper-ironic, taste-making white guy Quiet Storm/R&B angle back in 2007. We didn’t get around to it until 1995. Then Beck came along in ’99 with ‘Debra,’” says A. Whigs/Twilight Singers/Gutter Twins main man Dulli, “I know Har Mar is a huge fan and basically owes his career to the Kiwi comedy duo. All of us just want to give credit where it is due.” David Cross and Bob Odenkirk were invited to reprise their “‘Ewww Girl Ewww’ by Three Times One Minus One” skit from 1996, but no word as of this writing….we’re keeping our fingers crossed for a surprise appearance.

    Wait, what? Are you saying this is happening at Town Hall this Monday night? I can’t find anything about it. (According to Town Hall’s site, Black Crowes are playing there Monday.)

    he’s kidding, Stella. He’s saying that the Conchords are ripping off Beck and Dulli with their faux soul parodies. Or maybe he’s mocking Dulli and Beck by saying they’re musical output is a joke like the Conchords. Either way it’s safe to assume there is no such show. However! There is an amazing show next week at the Mercury Lounge where The Jerky Boys and Longmont Potion Castle reenact their favorite Earles & Jensen calls.
