Of Montreal karaoke show highlights

I said I'd try to provide some highlights from the Athens karaoke Of Montreal show... so here you go. The tracks here feature vocals by Athens musicians and were among the best efforts of the evening IMHO. The Spinal Tap cover is Of Montreal on their own to start the night. The Journey track is fronted by Jason from Casper & The Cookies while that band's guitarist, Jim Hicks, leads the rendition of Of Montreal's "Suffer for Fashion." The remaining track, an INXS original, is sung by Andy LeMaster of Now It's Overhead. All the below are live at the 40 Watt in Athens on April 9:

Of Montreal - Tonight I'm Gonna Rock Ya Tonight [Spinal Tap]
Of Montreal - Don't Stop Believin' [Journey; Jason Nesmith on vocals]
Of Montreal - Need You Tonight [INXS; Andy LeMaster on vocals]
Of Montreal - Suffer for Fashion [Jim Hicks on vocals]

Of Montreal will appear Thursday night (4/12) on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. The other guests are Molly Shannon and Tiki Barber. I bet Mary Katherine Gallagher would be totally into Of Montreal.

Posts will probably be rare the rest of the week, as I'm going to be in Chicago through Sunday. Yay!
