Few people who caught an episode during the two-season HBO run of Flight of the Conchords, a show about New Zealand's second-best-known rock group (only a duo) playing gigs in American airport bars and such, will ever forget it. Bret McKenzie (right) and Jemaine Clement (left) sang about all kinds of stuff, in a variety of styles — from French pop to dubsteb to acoustic folk — and the skits in between (with a great supporting cast) were really just a means of getting to those songs. Catch them at the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival on Thursday, along with headliner Dave Chappelle and other funny folks: Al Madrigal, Demetri Martin, Hannibal Buress, Kristen Schaal and Brody Stevens.
