Founded in the ’90s in Athens, Ga., and guided by the mad-genius Avant Pop songwriting instincts of Kevin Barnes, of Montreal is one of the more compelling Indie acts going.

Music Tonight: of Montreal, C.O.C. and more

Indie Funk Pop greats of Montreal's live show is like Prince and the Spiders from Mars doing Mummenschanz, and it's so entertaining, everyone should see the band live at least once in their lifetime (even if you hate all music, the band's theatrical presentation is something to behold). If you still need to cross "see of Montreal in concert" off of your bucket list, tonight's the night. The band performs at Covington's Madison Theater at 8 p.m. with Yip Deceiver (a side project of oM's Davey Pierce and Nick Dobbratz's) and Brooklyn "Pscychedelic Soul, Island Romance Pop, Space Rock" quartet Chappo. Tickets for the all-ages show are $15. The headliners are touring in support of its latest album, Paralytic Stalks. Here's the official music video for the track, "Spiteful Intervention." • Tonight at the basement Ballroom at the Taft (a great place to see a show, if you haven't yet), Punk-to-Metal veterans Corrosion of Conformity headline a night of sludgy modern Metal madness. The show features opening acts Torche, Black Cobra and progressive Salt Lake City-based Math Metal ensemble Gaza.Click here to read a little more about Torche, then enjoy the Floridian band's video for the track "King Beef" below.• If you're a little short on funds, Fountain Square has a great free show this evening. The 7 p.m. "American Roots" concert features two of the area's finest Americana acts — Magnolia Mountain and Wild Carrot (with its back-up crew, The Roots Band).

Kevin Barnes might not be on a par with Neil Young or David Bowie, but he's no slouch in the reinvention department. Over the past decade and a half, Barnes and Of Montreal (his rotating cast of musical provocateurs) have evolved from the conceptually edgy Baroque Pop brilliance of their early work with the Elephant 6 collective to a song structure more directly influenced by The Beatles and The Kinks to their current Funktronica flavored direction.  

Of Montreal's Sci-Fi Dance Party

New album delivers in a big way, taking band to Funkytown

With rampant stories regarding predatory men of the cloth, it's easy to read darker meanings into of Montreal's new album, 'False Priest.' It clearly represents of Montreal's next evolutionary step, long after beginning a gloriously lo-fi, giddily complex Pop band. He's now fronting an eclectic Soul revue, says Kevin Barnes.  

Collective Consciousness

Of Montreal finds itself a decade-long overnight sensation

Of Montreal, the non-Canadian, pro-vaudevillian, Ziggy Stardust-esque troupe from Athens, Ga., seemed to have come out of nowhere, even though they released their first album, 'Cherry Peel,' in 1997. But it wasn't until 2005, when the album 'Sunlandic Twins' was released, that Of Montreal began to cause a stir. Previously, their vibrant, synth-driven, flamboyant energy was seemingly fed the glittery residue left by bands long since deemed irrelevant to average music consumers: Queen, David Bowie and Prince.
