Two hours of songs centering on bad love. The least sincere and most cynical tunes that wallow endlessly in pure loneliness, desperation, broken heartery, betrayal, scorn and unrequited love.

31 different acts in this show, here is some information about some of them:

Flight Of The Conchords:

While roommates at Victoria University of Wellington, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement joined together to form Flight Of The Conchords which would soon become known as "New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo". The band released their first live record, "Folk The World Tour", in 2002. Soon after, the duo starred in their own BBC Radio 2 series wherein the band strikes out in England to achieve fame and fortune. The concept of the radio series formed the basis of their own HBO television series that premiered in 2007 which spurred two studio albums. After two seasons of their show, the band more or less went on hiatus until another HBO special that included new music was released in 2018. Outside of the band McKenzie has won an Academy Award for his song "Man or Muppet" from the film "The Muppets" and had small roles in two out of three The Lord Of The Rings films. Clement co-directed and starred in the 2014 mockumentary "What We Do in the Shadows" and has featured in other projects on the big and small screen.

Countries represented: USA, England, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Brazil.

"I wish I would have a real tragic love affair and get so bummed out that I'd just quit my job and become a bum for a few years, because I was thinking about doing that anyway." - Jack Handey
