From the opening sounds of “Run Into Flowers”, in which my friend Franny leaned over to me and said “this concert is going to be pretty awesome” I knew the night would not be a let down.
When a band has a large discography I always hope they play the songs I want to hear and M83 did just that. “Run Into Flowers” was the perfect opening number and led into other greats like “Kim and Jessie” “Graveyard Girl” “We Own the Sky” “Moonchild” “Don’t Save Us From the Flames” and the apparent fan favorite “Teen Angst”. The show was almost a playlist off my iTunes and I could not have been more pleased.
The group just sounded so great together. The pre-recorded voice samples were a nice touch and still played out well live. As did the explosive live drumming, which was utterly fantastic. [Stories In High Fidelity]
