As one of the most prolific neo-psych bands of modern times, Of Montreal have some incredible albums (2008's Skeletal Lamping) and some fabulous disasters (we’ll let you pick one of the last 15 studio albums that clashed with your personal rhythm at the time of release.)
The thing that always makes them an incendiary live act, no matter which album they're touring, is their 100-percent unironic commitment to bandleader Kevin Barnes' obsession of the moment. His sharp lyrical turns has been honed through reading, serially fucking and taking psychedelics, not necessarily in that order, for the last 20 years.
With lines like "he's the sort of guy who will leave you in a k-hole to go play Halo in the other room," Barnes can tell it like it is because he's been there. Sunday night with Athens' favorite experimental band promises color and pathos and passion.
