Indie psych-pop vet of Montreal is set to return to Buffalo for a show at 8 p.m. April 26 in Babeville's Asbury Hall (341 Delaware Ave.).
Led by brainchild Kevin Barnes, the Georgia-rooted band's sound has changed as frequently as its revolving-door lineup. Since sprouting up 1997, the flamboyant Barnes (the group's sole original member) and crew have steadily released a glut records that saw the collective's pop-rooted style under constant evolution, touching upon punk, glam, folk and even a dash of EDM.
Even with two decades of music in its catalog, the act's theatrical live show may be the most impressive. A psychedelic free-for-all with frequent costume changes, elaborate stage set ups and even the occasional live animal gracing the stage has made an of Montreal show a must-see event.
Barnes has made a habit of touring through Buffalo over the years, and this time will be in town to continue to support 2016's uptempo, glam-pop geared "Innocence Reaches" and the just-released EP "Rune Husk."
