M83 Is Coming; Here are Five Reasons to See The Band Live

When I photographed M83 a few months ago, I was expecting to hear a bunch of cinematic instrumental music. I thought M83 worked better as background music than a live show. I couldn't have been more wrong.

If you also have M83 pegged as a run of the mill post- rock band, do yourself a favor and dig a little deeper into their catalog. The band is returning to the Valley on Wednesday, May 23, and its sound, pop driven, gauzy, and powerful, is definitely worth seeing.

Don't believe me? Allow me to try and convince you.

M83 is scheduled to perform at Marquee Theatre on Wednesday, May 23. Tickets go on sale April 6.
