For the last 20 years, Kevin Barnes has led of Montreal down the yellow brick road of psychedelic mischief. Their journey transcends the decades and weds the sounds of the 60’s and 70’s with modern music production, presenting a unique, can’t-help-but-move sound.

At Slim’s in SF, of Montreal continued to impress and engage the crowds with their psychedelic mix of pop, funk and electronic glam. Their stage performance matched their instrumental prowess, consuming us with Da Vinci angels, Abraham Lincoln Spiderman and boxing stripper dogs. The two-hour show led us down a journey through time and space, embracing us with loving arms along the way.

of Montreal’s latest album Aureate Gloom dropped in February and contributes to their dynamic discography. This album evolves their sound and presents a more personal side of Barnes, making it more relate-able than most.
