Of Montreal at The Glass House

Unfortunately I missed all but the last 30 seconds of Busdriver... I guess things start on-time in Pomona!

Of Montreal were excellent - one of the most entertaining live bands at the moment. Some of it is still a little too theatrical and almost veers into Howard Jones territory with the regular masked visitors to the stage. However, the band themselves look great - like a post-Marrakesh Beatles after a paintball session. The music sounded really good - I must admit I haven't heard much of the new cd but if last night was anything to go by is just as strong as 'Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?'. Some of the new stuff sounded like 'Hunky Dory' era Bowie which is no bad thing at all...
