Of Montreal Peform ‘An Eluardian Instance’ on Letterman

Kevin Barnes

Last night I was super excited waiting for of Montreal to perform on the Late Show with David Letterman. I was like a teen girl waiting for the Beatles to come on the Ed Sullivan show.

of Montreal sort of threw me for a surprise last night. I was actually expecting it to be more like when they performed ‘Heimdalsgate Like a Promethean Curse’ on Conan in 2007. Their performance on Conan was extremely ellaborate with the band trying to put everything they did in their whole live show into one song….which is a hell of a lot.  They pulled off the song great, but it was a lot to look at during one song.

of Montreal did not do this last night. I think the band pulled off their performance on Letterman perfectly. It was just enough OM pizazz that they needed for one song. They came out with the gold Buddhas and then continued on with the paper mache man towards the middle and end. The band played beautifully last night and everyone in the band looked super sharp, especially Kevin in his purple ensemble. ‘An Eluardian Instance’ was completely flawless and amazing last night, and even by the end of it, Letterman looked like he was actually amused.
