I really hope you like these photos of Of Montreal as your favorite blogger G was nearly trampled to death trying to take these for you. Of Montreal, named after lead singer Kevin Barnes’ failed romance with a woman from the city, have been around since 1997.  Recently, the wannabe-hipster-i’ve-got a-fake-ID-so-let’s-get-wasted crowd got wise to this band and the audience at Terminal 5 in New York City was rowdy, unruly, and worst of all, moshing!  Of Montreal’s music is like a cross between the Scissor Sisters, MGMT and Frank Zappa!  They had cool visuals, random weirdos in costumes as backup dancers and their stage presence is as meandering as their music, but a good time was still had.

This is the second time I’ve seen Janelle Monae live, and she’s every bit as great as the first time.  She’s got a soulful voice that can raise the roof, she’s got great dance moves and last night at Terminal 5 in New York, she even made a painting while singing!  Of course, you’ll recall that Janelle was discovered by Outkast and now she’s signed to Bad Boy records (P. Doody’s label).  Like the last time I saw her live, she performed “Smile,” dedicated it to Michael Jackson and then moonwalked across the stage so perfectly that Michael is surely smiling wherever he is.
