Flight of the Conchords Flying into Fox Theatre Detroit

. June 1, 2016.

Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie (AKA Flight of the Conchords) bill themselves as “the almost award-winning fourth-most-popular folk duo in New Zealand,” but don’t let their modesty fool you — a BBC radio show, a HBO series and a slew of Emmy Award nominations in the late 2000s are evidence that these guys are seriously hilarious. After time off to pursue individual acting opportunities, the duo reunited in 2012, touring on and off since. A  Detroit stop is the only chance for audiences without an HBO subscription to enjoy their one-of-a-kind musical comedy, at least until a long-hinted at movie finds its way to the big screen.

Judy Banker’s Buffalo Motel

New album captures the permanence of memories When I talk to Judy Banker about her new album, Buffalo Motel, I can’t avoid my first question being about one particular song, “Haggerty.” I can’t wait for you to hear it in a live setting at The Ark on January 9. Even with headphones, a potent poignancy
