I have to be honest, I had never heard of the band Of Montreal until wimgo’s involvement in the Norman Music Festival. After successfully googling and youtubing the band, I was intrigued and excited to see their performance in Norman.
The day was a whirlwind. Literally. The wind was atrocious, but it did not deter the 25,000 fans eager to see local and national acts across the 11 stages. We were all exhausted after a long day of handing out goodies to the crowd, but I just had to stick around and watch Of Montreal’s performance. Unfortunately, there were far too many people for me to find a good place to watch and I left during their third song. I guess I’ll just have to settle for youtube. Do yourself a favor and watch their “Heimdalsgate Like a Promethean Curse” video. You won’t be sorry.
Anyway, the event was a phenomenal success. Kudos to the folks with the NMF and the Norman Arts Council for presenting such a high caliber event!
Mark your calendar for NMF 3 in April 2010 – you won’t want to miss it.
