of montreal to tour with janelle monae

    Of Montreal and Janelle Monae have joined forces several times, each showing up on the other's albums and touring together in early 2009. But the upcoming tour might take their collaboration to a whole new level, if we are to believe what Kevin Barnes has revealed &mdash he says they want to turn the night into one giant show experience. "We want to control the environment from right when the doors open, and have...so many different levels of artistic stimulation that would go on throughout the whole night."

    Super ambitious. But they seem like the perfect combination for a crazy multi-media experience like this, since the last time I saw Of Montreal their on-stage antics included uncountable costume changes, rollerbladers, a hanging, and even live animals while Janelle Monae has been known to paint on stage, and intends to make a feature length movie of the narrative of her most recent album. Whatever they do, it's likely to be an exciting deviance from rock show protocol. See the tour dates below, plus dates for each band on their own. -selden paterson
