From pitchfork.com: Theatrical Georgia-based art freaks of Montreal and Janelle Monáe have been very public mutual admirers for a while now. Of Montreal showed up on Monáe’s BNM’ed album The ArchAndroid to hijack a track, Monáe will show up twice on of Montreal’s forthcoming LP False Priest, and of Montreal invited Monáe onstage to moonwalk at last year’s Lollapalooza. They’ve toured together before, but Of Montreal and Monáe will hit the road for a joint trek this fall.

Talking to Pitchfork last month, of Montreal frontman Kevin Barnes revealed some ambitious plans for this tour: “We’re going to marry the two shows together, in a way. It doesn’t feel like you go see a band, and there’s a pause, and there’s another pause, and then it’s over. We want to control the environment from right when the doors open, and have performance art and video performances and so many different levels of artistic stimulation that would go on throughout the whole night, so there’s never a moment where there’s house music or boring lighting. We want to transform the venues each night, so it becomes this exceptional experience for everyone.”

    I'm selling two tickets that I won (I already bought mine before winning.. haha). If you're interested message me on here. Preferably I'd like you to write in my shoutbox about it because I never notice when I have a new message. Price: negotiable since I got them for free.

    does anyone listen Janelle Monáe? because I'm hopeful that she is great and will make the show even more fun.
