Of Monsters & Men at Chastain Park Amphitheatre on Oct.9

Nanna Bryndís Hilmarsdóttir captivates the audience.

The indie pop-folk group, Of Monsters and Men are considerably more mainstream  than avant-garde Icelanders like Sigur Ros and Bjork.  On Friday, Oct. 9, they played to an admiring crowd at Chastain Park Amphitheater in Atlanta, Ga.
The band's formation for touring has expanded to nine members, including two horn players.  Their stage presence created  a big sound, dramatic lighting and all-black outfits including Nanna in a flowing black robe.  The dark and moody stage came alive with  metal lighting rods along the back that sprang to live when hits like "Little Talks" and music from the new albumBeneath The Skin were played.  
The Swedish band Amason opened the evening.
