Live music, M83

One of the great aspects of going to see a favorite act perform live is that often after the show you fall in love with an album all over again and/or acquire even greater appreciation for it.

Last week I saw M83 (finally) at The Fillmore and it was arguably one of the best shows I’ve attended in a long time.

They sounded great and were at one of San Francisco’s best music venues, they played a pleasurable mix of old and new (all of which are good), and the crowd was attractive and enthusiastic. It probably didn’t hurt that they had just come off two weekends at Coachella, so their energy was high.

I’ve been listening to their last two albums, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming and Saturdays = Youth (which also served as our Burning Man exodus soundtrack last year) pretty much on loop the last week.

Here’s a clip from the show and one of my favorite songs, Reunion.
