Flight of the Conchords Screening Parties!

3349

In addition to being “New Zealand’s fourth most popular folk-comedy duo,” and on top of the fact that they are signed to a recording contract with the world famous Sub Pop Records (the very record label with whom they have pledged to release not only an EP later this very summer, but also a full-length record at some as yet to be determined time in the not too distant (and in fact hopefully before the end of this year) future) Flight of the Conchords are soon to be, in the parlance of our times, kind of a big deal. This is happening largely due to the June 17th premiere of their new HBO comedy series entitled, somewhat mysteriously, Flight of the Conchords . The show is being described as “A new comedy series that makes love to your ears.” And while, sure, that sounds maybe a little gross, what we’ve seen of the show is really very funny.

What’s more, the folks at HBO, along with the folks at Cornerstone have put together some free screenings of the first episode! Here’s the shinola on that:
