M83, Active Child 

When: Sat., Oct. 29, 10 p.m. 2011

The 22-song, 72-minute Hurry Up, We're Dreaming—the latest synthesizer-and-drama-rich sprawl from France's Anthony Gonzalez—pairs the grand scope of his sounds with the scale of the project. Loaded with samples and collaborations, saxophones and big drums, M83 continues to thrive on colossal moments of mechanized catharsis. Live, Gonzalez' expanded act is rigorously structured and carefully executed, meaning that what already sounds huge on album should sound inescapable live. Opener Active Child, despite a disappointing first album after an impressive string of singles and EPs, combines a charming falsetto with an intriguing mix of harp and brash beats. The 10 p.m. show is sold out. —Grayson Currin
