Of Montreal and Janelle Monae will make Liberty Hall explode in color this weekend

Of Montreal and Janelle Monae are combining their technicolor dreamscapes into one gigantic psychedelic dream -- and they're doing it here, in Lawrence, on Saturday night. Of Montreal showed up on Monae's The ArchAndroid, and Monae showed up twice on of Montreal's False Priest. (The Georgia-based art freaks even invited Monáe onstage to moonwalk at last year's Lollapalooza.) They've toured together before, but Of Montreal and Monae will hit Lawrence on a joint headline this Saturday.

Here's what Of Montreal's Kevin Barnes told Pitchfork about the tour.

"We're going to marry the two shows together, in a way. It doesn't feel like you go see a band, and there's a pause, and there's another pause, and then it's over. We want to control the environment from right when the doors open, and have performance art and video performances and so many different levels of artistic stimulation that would go on throughout the whole night, so there's never a moment where there's house music or boring lighting. We want to transform the venues each night, so it becomes this exceptional experience for everyone."

Expect some mad theatrics. Here's video footage below.
