M83 is absolutely one of my favorite bands to see live. While many people find Anthony Gonzalez’s heavily shoegaze-influenced music somewhat boring (excluding that one track that everyone knows from Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming), their live performances are anything but that. From the perfectly implemented light show to the random electronic dance jam sessions in the middle of their more upbeat songs, M83 is a blast to see in concert. Even though there were people at the concert who only wanted to hear “Midnight City,” there is no denying that the rest of the show was just as energetic. Their extended versions of “Fall” from the TRON: Legacy soundtrack and “Couleurs” from Saturdays = Youth were awesome. Even if you’re one of the “only likes Midnight City” crowd, their live performances make that song look boring in comparison. You should seriously see them.
