Folk Is Not Dead!

So The Sopranos ended to the smooth croonings of Steve Perry and Journey, and so you still have a bit of a wait for the next season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, and so Showtime is still a month away from gracing us with season 3 of Weeds. There's no need to watch reruns of shows that weren't that good in the first place or shows that had so little chance for success that they were relegated to the summer. Instead, tune into HBO Sunday nights at 10:30ET after Entourage to watch Flight of the Conchords the story of two struggling New Zealanders trying to resurrect folk singing in the Big Apple. Expect plenty of dry wit and spontaneous song and dance routines. Seriously, this is funny stuff. Check out What the Folk! a fan site with music, video, and much more. Here's a song they performed on the Letterman show that was featured in an episode a couple of weeks ago.
