    M83

    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.

    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!

    saw them in DC, with Active Child opening, at The Black Cat (worst venue ever). i think their epic sound can certainly benefit from a much larger venue.

    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.

    well, maybe not at an arena (even though they wrote the album exactly with the arena in mind, inspired by touring with Depeche Mode), but a venue where the sound is good wherever you are and you can see the stage. at the shitty Black Cat in DC unless you're right in front of the stage (i.e. no pee break because the highly competitive DC crowd of young professionals won't let you back in) it's a shit experience.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I'm getting tickets for the Austin show for sure. Just saw them back in November and it blew my mind...till I spotted Wayne Coyne in the audience, then my attention moved to him.

    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's very cool, he was just in town for the weekend while Mike and Steve were at Yo Gabba Gabba with their kids. Talked to him for 10 minutes about Pink Floyd. 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.

    I will be hitting the Detroit show. It's about time that a band I want to see live comes to this area. I bought a pre-sale ticket through crowdsource. Did anyone do the same with the last round of touring? I'm sure I'm being unnecessarily paranoid about being able to get in when I get to the venue.

    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.
