Of Montreal live at the Fillmore Miami Beach

April 10, 2010

When Of Montreal took the stage at the Jackie Gleason Center at the Fillmore Miami Beach, I expected some new songs and hoped for a performance as wild and theatrical as the year before at the smaller Club Revolution in Fort Lauderdale, just a county to the north. OK, so I got neither (except for one new song– “Like a Tourist” from the upcoming False Priest album. According to singer Kevin Barnes it comes out in September). Still, it was an enjoyable, if not poorly attended show. The band did enthusiastic renditions of music that mostly spanned their later albums during an all too-brief set.

Here are the videos I made at the show. All songs are intact, from start to finish and are in the order they were played, with some songs missing (I have to enjoy the show from outside the camera screen on occasion)…

“Suffer for Fashion”

“Like a Tourist”

“Du Og Meg”

“Oslo in the Summertime”

“Sentence of Sorts in Kongsvinger”

“Requiem for O.M.M.2”

“I Want You Back”
