Of Montreal at La Bataclan

Of Montreal rolled into la Bataclan last week and we were there to join the party.
I've mentioned what a great venue la Bataclan is, my biggest gripe, the beer. Kronenberg, a not too great French beer is all that have but you can get wine in a fancy plastic cup. Here Robbie displays one of each.
Becca and Robbie joined us at the show. Count the drinks.
Of Montreal put on a pretty amazing show. The music is perfect for dancing but the stage show was so crazy that you never want to look away and miss something. The band sounded great but the showmanship was the best part of the evening, there was just so much going on.
I don't know many song names but they played, Gronlandic edit, Wicked Wisdom, She's a Rejector, Bunny ain't no kind of rider, For our elegant caste and a bunch of others before ending with Take Me Out, a Franz Ferdinand cover.
Check out the bird headed judges beside Kevin.

I was amazed that he was such a good guitarist, a couple of the songs really rocked live.
This devil being worshiped by the pig was a catholic priest just moments before.
Kevin being carried by red faced things.
Kevin, now shirtless, and the red things.
Surrounded and embraced by the red things.
The white tiger has found the pig.
Sorry this picture is so bad but this is Kevin wearing an outfit that created its own smoke.
Kevin dressed in whip cream.

Everyone up on stage for Take Me Out.
