VIDEO: Of Montreal, "Heimdalsgate Like a Promethean Curse," live at the Paradise Rock Club (video by OTD)
Georgia popsters Of Montreal have been playing a handful of new songs on their current US tour. We had three people taking video of them over two nights when they stopped by the Paradise earlier this week, and so, of course, nobody got any new stuff. But that's okay, as it's still always a pleasure to hear Kevin Barnes and company operate.
Although, I still can't help but notice one thing: I was not there, but in the videos and the photos, a few things are apparent. First, they've got a bunch of people augmenting the stage show by dancing around in animal costumes. Second, they project video on a large screen behind them. Third, at some point, they dump confetti - or is that actually a pile of feathers? - on everyone. Where have we seen these things done before? There are worse sources to pay homage to, I suppose.
More video follows after the jump, with "Wraith Pinned to the Mist and Other Games" and "Beware Our Nubile Miscreants."
