Shimmering or Shattering?

What is one to expect from tonight’s M83 show at the Black Cat?

The French electronic fuzz-miesters make their first ever visit to the District tonight. While their three near-perfect albums drip of Air meets My Bloody Valentine, full of beautiful soundscapes that would be equally at home in the lobby of a hip hotel in Paris, scoring a Michael Mann film or rocking your socks off at the local Shoegazer night; their live show is noted for its instrumental huge-ness with upwards fo 6 people on stage making a racket loud enough to shake the heavens.

Being a fan of both carefully crafted electronic beauty and the old screw-driver ripping across guitar strings routine, you can bet that I’m going to be there. Curious to see what type of performance we get from the M83 enigma, but pretty sure whichever it is I’m going to walk out of there with a smile on my face and a ring in my ear.

M83 w/ Ulrich Schnauss @ the Black Cat
