VISUALLY EXPLOSIVE: Of Montreal has a way with the visual storytelling, while Janelle Monae can jump on stage bursting with energy. Tonight the two take the Granada stage for a fun-filled performance. Of Montreal’s style and music has transformed since their early indie pop years in Georgia to more of a mainstream sound. Band creator Kevin Barnes is the mastermind behind the transitioning sound and the new album “False Priest” is said to be his masterpiece. See the mastermind and his band along with funky songstress Janelle Monae in Dallas tonight. Doors open at 8 p.m.
