Pygmalion Fest: Of Montreal

Date October 1, 2006

Outback Steakhouse’s latest ad musicians showed up in Urbana, IL to headline the much-hyped 10th Anniversary Polyvinyl Party. Althought the crowd was full of diehards, I’m not sure anyone expected Music Man covers, onstage theatrics involving a handcuffs, a whip, and Saran wrap, and a complete disreguard for simple things like… clothing.
