of Montreal Covers David Bowie And Prince In Connecticut

Recently, of Montreal began incorporating a pair of covers into their performances in which they honor two late music legends David Bowie and Prince. The group touring in support of their new album Innocence Reaches offered the tribute to The Thin White Duke and The Purple One at their stop last night at College Street Music Hall in New Haven, Connecticut and there’s HD video footage documenting the performance.

Frontman Kevin Barnes began the encore Sunday evening with “Suffer For Fashion” and then led the ensemble through a cover of Bowie’s “The Man Who Sold The World.” A quick transition to Prince’s “1999” soon followed before a move to the show closing “Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse.”

Videographer mkdevo was in New Haven and captured the covers medley, watch in HD here:
