Experimental electronic pop rock outfit of Montreal are hitting The Bluebird stage this Monday, October 17th. Kevin Barnes, who originally formed the band in 1996, has transformed the group over time from indie pop to funky glam rock to its current electronic sound. The band, whose lineup includes Barnes (vocals/multiple instruments), Clayton Rychlik (drums/keys/guitar/bass), Jojo Glidewell (keys), Davey Pierce (bass), and Nicolas Dobbratz (keys/percussion/bass/guitar), just released their latest record Innocence Reaches in August 2016. It’s full of electronic and prog rock vibes, and is the band’s fourteenth release over the span of their prolific career.
