Of Montreal @ Minglewood Hall 4/27/2009

Of Montreal for those who have had the chance to check these guys out are a six piece experimental, pop, electronic indie-rock group from Athens, Georgia (not Montreal).
This is the 3rd time i have seen Of Montreal, and they have amped up the intensity since I first saw them in 2007. Musically they are tight, but a little darker and more experimental reflecting some of the darker material on the last two albums. Many of their older simpler songs are being played in a more experimental way with some of them changing tempo mid-song (even in songs where that doesn't happen in the album) and a lot of drawn-out psychedelic jams.
None of my pictures turned out, but i'll try to describe the visual element of the show through simple words i think combined give you an idea of the effect of the many lights, skits, projects videos, and outright insanity featured in the show.
