I saw them the other night in Chicago, in a tiny venue. It was awesome! Their new album is pretty great, but Saturdays = Youth is still my favorite.
Kim & Jessieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee...
What you said but change Chicago to Portland. I am always in the mood for Saturdays = Youth and a friend of mine recently discovered them. Such an amazing live show!

Really? I saw them at Lincoln Hall in Chicago which was tiny, and I absolutely loved the venue because of its size. I saw Muse in an arena, and they put on a great show, but it wasn't as cool, IMO because of the size.

I can't stop listening to the new album!
Saw them at Lincoln Hall, too, and I think it was your AIR patch I spotted on your jacket, Malechite. The show was amazing, and Lincoln Hall was a really nice venue to see them at. This video of their appearance on Jimmy Fallon makes me wish I had tickets to both their shows in Chicago, and streaming video ripping abilities.
Great video! Thanks for sharing! Absolutely love.

saw them at Webster Hall in NYC and was blown away just like I was in '08. They will be doing 3000-5000 capacity clubs from now on, and should prolly be a major major act for all the summer festivals in 2012. I would have loved to see them open for NIN at one point...mighta stolen the show though...and they kinda have the same kind of epic aesthetic that Trent does.
2nd best show i saw this year after Portishead.
I've only really listened to the new album once, but nothing really stood out enough to make me want to immediately jump back in. I'll definitely give it another try sometime, but every previous album M83's catalogue had at least 1 song that I loved on first listen.
Obsessed with Hurry Up, We're Dreaming and have tickets to see them in January. I think the latest album is my favourite of the whole year.
really? Now I'm disappointed I missed when they came through my town. Listening to Steve McQueen a lot

I can't help but think this band would have been so much better with a more talented vocalist. I feel they have to drown the vocals in effects to make him/them/whatever sound listenable. Instrumentally this band is awesome.
Miss your chance to see them recently? You may be in luck again...

Now, do I want to see them again? I'd venture to say no since I JUST saw them...but I still might, who knows.
I'm totally down for seeing them again, thanks for the heads up
I should probably refrain...with my wedding this summer, can I afford another pair of tickets haha...this and Puscifer and a few other shows I'm sure. Nobody has to eat at a wedding, right? That's just a maybe kinda thing?
Just got tickets for the Lawrence, KS show. Could not be more excited! Especially with I Break Horses as the opener.
The sexy sax solo on Midnight City makes me happy.
I saw them last month in Houston, it was a spectacular show. Wouldn't mind seeing them again in May

Same. I'm going to have to get a pair of tickets for the Portland show. FUN!

Wayne Coyne is at every show ever. There have been numerous times where I've randomly spotted him hanging out at shows in and around the KC area with Kliph, who actually lives in Lawrence. Such a cool dude.

He also mentioned that Anthony from M83 and him were talking about possibly collaborating for an EP or sorts, similar to the crap he's been doing with Neon Indian and others. M83 and FLips would blow my mind.

Did anybody else see this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWTLSZottgc audition for backup vocalist for a S. American leg of their tour or something
Love the new M83. At first I thought some of the instrumental transitions were unnecessary (double albums pretty much have to have them, and they're often fluff), but now I love them and I feel they're all essential to the album's flow. And it's so huge! I didn't think an M83 album could possibly get any bigger. I'm actually afraid to see what he comes out with next.
great album, wish i had seen them in nyc before they were doin bigger venues. fuck T5
