ACL 2016: M83 at ACL Live

After a successful Friday night appearance at Austin City Limits, M83 made their return to Austin as headliners at ACL Live and the venue could not have been more ideal. The energy in the room was high from the opening and didn't let go. Anthony Gonzalez and singer Kaela Sinclair bounced off each other while lasers and a starlight back drop transformed ACL Live from a live music venue to a full on dance club. M83 has no shame in having fun with the soundscapes they create with numerous sax and guitar solos and synths straight out of an 80's movie. The band opened with Reunion and then moving onto newer material with Do It, Try It, Road Blaster and Bibi The Dog from their latest Junk. It was a nice surprise that they performed Oblivion from the 2013 film of the same name and a personal favorite 'Kim & Jessie' was noticeably absent from the set.  The band finished strong with the bands biggest hit to date and the very crowd pleasing "Midnight City"  before returning for the encore and closing with "Couleurs" and "Lower Your Eyelids To Die With The Sun".
