Something better beginning in Long Beach: The good people at the Glass House have hooked into the Art Theatre on Retro Row and are starting to bring big-name all-ages sets to the heart of the city. (If we get a Coachella secret show there, our tiny mind will be blown.) And this particular show really raises the bar: the extremely extravagant band of Montreal, who do everything-is-possible psychedelic dance-pop insanity with the kind of stage show one day destined for a Vegas strip revue. (MTV said their set-up rivaled Madonna, and Of Montreal pulled that off on like 8% of the budget, too.) They’ve got a new album on deck for a fall release, so expect even more of the unexpected than usual, and say hi to the horse if they bring one!
