Of Montreal is playing the Luminary Center for the Arts on July 4th. That's right: A band that sold 1,300 tickets to its last show here, at the Pageant, is playing what amounts to an exceptionally well-equipped basement. Luminary director James McAnally says he's been getting a lot of questions about this show from incredulous fans, chief among them 1) Is this real? and 2) Is the actual, full-fledged Of Montreal playing? The answers are yes and yes. "It is planned to be a 'normal' set with a full band, costumes, etc.," says McAnally.

There are still roughly 40 tickets left -- you can buy them through Brown Paper Tickets right now. Of Montreal side project Yip Deceiver will open things up.

This is the smallest venue Of Montreal has played in years. On July 2, the band will be playing the Blue Note in Columbia, so it isn't like this is some sort of stripped-down, intimate tour. This is one show, and Kevin Barnes and Co. will be pretty far away from the concert experience they're used to staging at this point in their careers.

Turns out I can't resist: There will be fireworks.
