The sold out M83 show on Friday was jam-packed, and the French-by-way-of-LA band rose to the challenge, with a heaping pile of songs from their latest double opus, Hurry Up, We're Dreaming. It was a great, if crowded, concert, aided by an extravagant light show. At one point I tweeted, "M83 sounds like if Giorgio Moroder kissed a teddy bear to life. And then gave it ecstasy."

The talented Minh Tran was on hand to take these great photos. And yes, M83's set began with an appearance by that weird bug thing you see above (it's also on the inside cover of Hurry Up, We're Dreaming). It just kind of stood there for a few minutes before the band started. Plenty more pictures after the jump.
