Tour Announcements: Of Montreal, Fanfarlo

Led by frontman Kevin Barnes, the indie-collective Of Montreal is actually an American band that calls Athens, GA home.  The off-the-wall, self-deprecating and ever-changing sound of Of Montreal will be hitting the road this January, kicking off their small, eastern US tour January 25th at Ram's Head in Baltimore.

Check out 'Oslo in the Summertime' from their 2005 album The Sunlandic Twins here:

And if you live in the northeast, you can check out the eccentric band live:

Jan 25 - Baltimore, MD - Ram's Head
Jan 26 - New York, NY - TBA
Jan 27 - Boston, MA - Paradise
Jan 28 - Washingon, DC - 9:30 Club
Jan 29 - Norfolk, VA - Norva
Jan 30 - Richmond, VA - The National
Feb 04 - Athens, GA - 40 Watt

Don't live East of the Mississippi?  No worries, Fanfarlo has you covered.  The London-based indie-rock outfit who've turned some heads with their 2009 debut Reservoirs, have set up an American tour up the west coast.

It's hard not to make The Arcade Fire comparisons as you listen to 'I'm a Pilot:

West-coasters can check them out this February:

Feb 22 - San Francisco, CA - Great American Music Hall
Feb 23 - Portland, OR - Doug Fir
