Experimental pop group Of Montreal will be headlining a concert at 601 Spring Event Center in downtown Shreveport on Sunday, Dec. 17, and event production company Boytim Ventures has offered 20×49.com the opportunity to give away a pair of tickets. To enter the giveaway, just send an e-mail with the subject line “Of Montreal Giveaway” to firstname.lastname@example.org by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 12. A winner will be drawn at that time and notified by e-mail.
Of Montreal, a five-piece based in Athens, GA, are touring in support of a lot of new music – including the recent full-length Innocence Reaches and an EP called Rune Husk – as well the deluxe re-issue of their celebrated 2007 release Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? Of Montreal’s tour only includes 11 stops, and several of those stops are major music festivals like Houston’s enormous Day For Night Festival. It’s pretty cool that one of those tour stops is Shreveport.
Of Montreal have played a couple of gigs in Shreveport previously. Chase Boytim of Boytim Ventures tells me that the band has taken its elaborate stage production to bigger heights since their last visit, with an updated onstage video installation, costume changes and more. The all-ages show is scheduled from 8 p.m. to midnight, and Christina Schneider’s Genius Grant will be opening for Of Montreal. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here.
