[INDIE DRAMEDY] Try to imagine a big-budget Of Montreal show. Using only the funds available to a scrappy veteran indie act, the Athens, Ga.-based band\'s concerts have found frontman Kevin Barnes riding a white horse onstage, clothed in only whipped cream and mimicking suicide in a Broadway-quality staged hanging. Behind him, the band wears a full Gaga worth of shiny costumes and plays a 15-year catalog that starts with the band sounding a lot like its lo-fi Elephant 6 colleagues before evolving into the delightful electro-pop of The Sunlandic Twins, peaking with the highly conceptual yet taught Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?, and continuing with the two scattershot efforts that followed. Of Montreal is working on a documentary funded by Kickstarter. The trailer includes the band summing up its career thusly: \"I guess that\'s the overall theme of our lives—doing the weirdest shit you could possibly imagine, casually.\"
