One of the more inspired concert pairings in recent memory, indie-rock space oddities Of Montreal and r&b space cadet Janelle Monae both love bombastic stage shows, cosmic textures, colorful costumes, and fabulous flights of poetic fancy. Their recent songs include “Violet Stars Happy Hunting!!!” and “Triphallus, to Punctuate!”—you can check Google to see who did which. Expect nothing short of makeup, confetti, smoke, and dancing Buddhas—underground rock and r&b played with the bravado of the wildest stadium show.
