Of Montreal, Pillar Point

When: Thu., Oct. 9, 8 p.m.-12 a.m. 2014

Athens, Ga., band Of Montreal has changed up their style multiple times over the years—moving from mellow indie stuff to synth-y electro-rock and beyond—and that evolution continues on their 12th album, 2013's Lousy With Sylvanbriar. Largely inspired by a solo retreat frontman Kevin Barnes made to San Francisco, the jangly, minimal result is influenced by '60s and '70s musicians such as Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Gram Parsons and more, as well as Sylvia Plath's tortured poetry—"Colossus" is especially bleak, but lovely. And being the prolific musician he is, Barnes is already onto a next thing: a "prog-pop" album, Barnes told Paste, on which he's "navigating through all of the changes and experiences from the last year." Pillar Point is also on the bill. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
