When: Fri., April 7, 8 p.m. 2017
Officially part of the Elephant 6 Collective, which has spawned heavy-hitting indie acts like Neutral Milk Hotel and The Apples In Stereo, of Montreal have been serving up their own special blend of psychedelic indie pop since the late 1990s. Formed in Athens, Georgia, of Montreal began as just one person, frontman Kevin Barnes, before adding additional members prior to the release the 1997 record Cherry Peel. Though the band has kept a general psyche tone throughout the years, their sound has taken on a number of different manifestations — ranging anywhere from The Beatles circa 1969 to Blonde Redhead and Animal Collective. Whatever the sound, the music is almost always weird and probably would sound amazing on a dose of magic mushrooms (not that we would know). So if you’re up for a strange trip, don't miss of Montreal’s stop at Paper Tiger on Friday.
