Come back to Wes! Please!! They fixed the fire alarm, I think!

From Pitchfork:

Having bared his soul (and a good portion of his tuchus) to the gathered masses at this weekend’s un-damn-believable Pitchfork Music Festival, Of Montreal‘s Kevin Barnes can’t wait to show it all off again. Will he again be joined by Darth Vader, a giant crab, and the puffy-suited guy with five Kevin heads?

Maybe, maybe not, but on the band’s just-announced fall North American tour, he’ll bring along totally cracked hip-hoppers Grand Buffet as an opening act, which is almost as strange (though the two groups have toured together before). Check out their track “Dark Autumn”, from the Haunted Fucking Gazebo EP and forthcoming album King Vision, by clicking on the link below.

Also opening the North American tour is MGMT, who will release Oracular Spectacular on Columbia this fall.

    you clearly don’t know shit about booking shows at wesleyan. other schools have tons of money for shows but the current SBC sucks ass and doesn’t give money for indie shows anymore. try booking them yourself and see what happens rather than being lazy and expecting other people to. of montreal costs at LEAST $5000 to book, MGMT probably at least $1500. the sbc rarely gives out more than $1k for shows.

    won’t happen?too expensive?what are you talking about?if we can afford bands like the walkmen, animal collective and of montreal for non-spring fling shows, of course we can afford our friends andrew and beno.MGMT may be on a major, but that doesn’t suddenly make them untouchable. they are still a wesleyan band and they will return soon enough.if they were too expensive for colleges, they wouldn’t have posted a bulletin on myspace a few days ago asking kids to help them book some college shows……
