Concert Announcements: Janelle Monae, Of Montreal,
Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, Beach House & much, much more

There have been too many concert announcements that I've missed over the past few days not to throw them all in one post. Here are the highlights:

Of Montreal will be in Lawrence on Saturday, October 23rd. The exciting part is that KCK native Janelle Monae will be opening the show. She's undoubtedly put out one of the years best albums in The ArchAndroid and this is the first time in a while that she's been through town (the show she was suppose to open for Erykah Badu was canceled earlier this year).

Another band with a candidate for album of the year is Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti. They'll be at The Jackpot in Lawrence on Thursday, September 16th.

Indie rock darlings Vampire Weekend will be joined by Beach House and The Very Best for a show at Starlight Theater on Saturday, October 2nd.

Here's the rest:

Thu 08/12 We Are Scientists/Bad Veins @ The Record Bar, KC
Fri 09/10 Girl Talk @ The Crossroads, KC
Sun 09/19 Rogue Wave/Midlake/Peter Wolf Crier @ The Granada, Lawrence
Tue 09/28 Ted Leo and the Pharmacists @ The Jackpot, Lawrence
Sat 10/09 Ra Ra Riot @ The Granada, Lawrence
Sat 10/23 Of Montreal/Janelle Monae @ Liberty
