Giveaway: Two Pairs of Tickets to Tonight's of Montreal Show at The Granada Theater
In this week's paper, Daniel Rodrigue catches up with founding of Montreal member Bryan Poole and gets to the nitty gritty of the band's dynamics behind enigmatic frontman Kevin Barnes.
"It's not a normal band now," Poole concedes. "It's not a democratically creative band. It's Kevin's band. They're his ideas. They're his songs."Frustrating for any band members not named Barnes? Maybe. But not really. Because, you see, as both Rodrigue and Poole point out (and, as Poole himself reiterates in the story's online comment section), whatever the band is doing is working. And though tonight's show might be a scaled-back affair when compared to the band's 2008 show at the House of Blues, it still should be a good one. In fact, Poole even guarantees as much. No, really. (He also calls opening act Noot d' Noot his "favorite band out of Atlanta.")
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!
