M83 Recorded Live At The Nine Thirty Club
Currently streaming on NPR is a stunning live recording from the 9:30 Club in Washington D.C. of French producer Anthony Gonzalez, aka M83. The band is currently on tour throughout the US (see below for dates).Their show is edgy and well crafted. The production is first rate and the musicianship displayed by the band is nothing short of phenomenal.
I caught a performance of M83 a few weeks ago at Bumbershoot in Seattle. The euphoria felt throughout the venue created havoc with security as hundreds of people tried to rush the stage. As soon as “Midnight City” began, there was no holding them back. It was one of the best shows I have seen in some time.
Catch this band live when you can. It’s certainly worth the price of admission. You can buy their album here.

Watch this great new video by filmmaker Colin Rich. It’s a timelapse piece, set to M83’s “Echoes Of Mine”, that shows the magnificent city of Los Angeles in all of her glory:
