So New Zealand's "fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo" The Flight of the Conchords have just announced a massive North American tour and, sadly, are following the touring-migration patterns of the Boss and The Killers, meaning their flight plans do not see them landing in Winnipeg.
Don't these acts know we're getting an Ikea, that blue Swedish shopping colossus that instantly transforms humble hamlets into certified cities? Sheesh!
FotC Canadian dates are your usual Vancouvers and Torontos, but if you're up for a seven-hour cross-border adventure, you can catch them in Minneapolis on May 3rd.
And now for some shows that are taking place here:
Local funk-favs Moses Mayes play the Pyramid on May 2nd.
The No Fear Energy Music Tour featuring Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, As I Lay Dying, God Forbid, and Municipal Waste hits the Convention Centre on April 13th.
