NPR Live in Concert will be running a live webcast from the Of Montreal show tomorrow night at 9:30 Club in D.C. Soul-freak kitten and my future wife, Janelle Monae, is set to open the show.
Everything about Of Montreal is a spectacle, and the band’s live performances are no exception. Led by frenetic frontman Kevin Barnes, Of Montreal stages fantastically theatrical concerts with elaborate sets, multiple costume changes and synchronized dancing, all driven by breathlessly unpredictable songs. Of Montreal is on tour for its latest album, False Priest, and stops by Washington, D.C. for a full concert, webcast live on NPR Music Tuesday, Sept. 14. The performance, from the 9:30 Club, will begin streaming online at approximately 9 p.m. ET, with an opening set by R&B singer Janelle Monae.
