CoMusic Preview: of Montreal with Yip Deceiver


of Montreal live

Kevin Barnes from of Montreal performing live.

Of Montreal have been moving our feet and blowing our minds since 2004’s Satanic Panic in the Attic, though many often forget the band actually released 5 albums before Satanic Panic. The band rolls through town on Saturday, July 2 for a show at The Blue Note.

Expect to hear many of your favorites from Satanic Panic, The Sunlandic Twins, and Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer. All concert-goers should also prepare for the possibility of hearing a track from 2008’s dense disappointment Skeletal Lamping and this year’s weirder than weird Thecontrollersphere EP. The band’s newest album, False Preist, is a pleasant surprise. The album channels early R&B and funk, and features guest vocals by the amazing Janelle Monae and Solange Knowles.  Tickets are unbelievably reasonable at $16, and are still available at the Blue Note box office or online here. Remember,  you can pay cash at the Blue Note and avoid service fees.

Opening the show is Yip Deceiver, which is of Montreal member Davey Pierce’s side project. Their electronic dance-pop should be a perfect pairing for the main set. Hear two tracks from Yip Deceiver’s debut EP here.

Doors at The Blue Note open at 8:00. Tickets are $16.
