Of Montreal appeared at 9:30 Club recently for a different kind of show. You see, frontman Kevin Barnes fell in love. And with that, he’s been a bit more carefree, a bit more open, and a bit more himself. That inner self shined brightly at 9:30 Club, and Katherine Gaines captured this glory on film.

But on their first of two nights playing the 9:30 Club Friday, they mostly let their songs — 30 of them, a two-and-a-half-hour set — do the talking.

The most courageous and enlightening part about the journey of life is the opportunity to understand more about yourself and more about what you’re capable of achieving. Self reflection goes beyond merely listing the positives and negatives of your daily pursuit. You have to activate change. You have to “spread love,” and one of the best examples in hip hop of activating destiny is Atlanta rap duo EarthGang and their Welcome To Mirrorland Tour.
