The performance by the Kiwi duo of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, who play themselves on their eponymous HBO series, was preceded by three comics who then introduced the plaid-donning pair. After achieving the level of success in which they're able to sell out venues like the Hollywood Bowl, it seems the boys feel they don't need to rely on robot costumes to attract a crowd.
But don't assume FOTC slacked off in other respects to put on a thoroughly entertaining show. Their act was riddled with hilarious side commentary in between songs and made complete with David Bowie parodies, stage dives into the crowd and a gentle dismantling of the set and instruments before leaving the stage.
With the gorgeous weather we experienced over the holiday weekend, a concert at the Bowl was the perfect way to celebrate the start of the hot season, and an instant reminder of why shows at open air venues are one of the best things about summer in L.A.
