M83 at Town Ballroom

Browse the list of critics’ top albums of 2011, and you’ll see M83’s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. Scan the singles rundown, and “Midnight City” is sure to be found, too. M83 is Frenchman Anthony Gonzalez, who, at just thirty years of age, has released six unique, hook-driven, sonically diverse albums. This is epic, large-scale rock that has the ability to please Coldplay and Sonic Youth fans equally. It’s possible that M83’s next album will blow up even more, so see Gonzalez in the smaller confines of Town Ballroom while you still can. Hurry Up actually charted at fifteen in America, so the cross-over has begun.  

7 p.m. doors on Monday, May 7, at Town Ballroom, 681 Main St.; 716-223-6000 or www.townballroom.com.
