I think Lewis Lazare is going to be surprised

Sorry, this is too perfect not to post:

"On Tuesday, the Chicago Creative Club Awards show organizers — Matt Brennock, Liz Ross and Katie Juras — confirmed the headliner band that will perform at the Sept. 10 extravaganza at the Riviera Theater in Uptown. It is Of Montreal, a Georgia-based band with, interestingly enough, some Canadian influences. The band's Wikipedia entry characterizes Of Montreal as a baroque rock group, which sounds intriguing enough to us, who don't have a great familiarity with the vast number of rock bands out there performing.

"But Brennock told us there's also a Cirque du Soleil air about Of Montreal and their performance style. Now Cirque we know something about, and that certainly sounds appealing to us."

It's more like Cirque du Soleil - gymnastics + black transgender stage persona x Kevin Barnes's penis, but I don't know that much about Cirque du Soleil, so I could be wrong, too.
