Garfunkel and Oats House of Blues 2014

Garfunkel and Oats came across my radar because of Chris Hardwick. The duo sang their song 29 31. Yes, it’s an oddly named song but very funny and the wife and I just laughed.

When Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome (the Oats and the Garfunkel) starred in a show on IFC, we naturally watched. We were slightly shocked but we also laughed. When they appeared at the House of Blues, we went and saw their act live. They do put on a good show. Go see them.

After the show we stayed and collected some autographs.  They set up a table and tried to sell CDs and t-shirts (let’s face it – a show on IFC didn’t bump them to a higher tax bracket) but everyone just wanted to say hello and get a signature.

They genuinely seemed to enjoy talking to their fans. They engaged individually or together based on the people talking to them.  They accepted feedback and input from the crowd with aplomb. I felt slightly greedy asking for an individual photo AND a group photo to be signed. When I mentioned it they both shook off any concern I had and thanked me for wanting their signatures.
But really, go see their show. You'll like it. You'll laugh. You'll never think of go carts the same way.
