Of Montreal w/ Janelle Monae

Oct. 22 Of Montreal w/ Janelle Monae Sokol Auditorium, 2234 S. 13th St. 8 p.m., $25, onepercentproductions.com There is nothing boring about this band. Ever-changing in sound and scope, Georgia hipsters Of Montreal play spacey jams that swing from indie lo-fi to baroque pop to glitchy kraut-rock. Creator Kevin Barnes even sang half a show’s worth of material while naked in Las Vegas recently. Add to that some trippy Salvador Dali meets Sesame Street album artwork, as well as a genuine refusal to be anything normal and you end up with a pretty unique group. They are currently touring in support of their tenth album False Priest.
