Despite a heartbreakingly quiet speaker decibel, M83 dazzled in the open air at Central Park's Summerstage Wednesday night. The set list pleased both longtime fans and recent converts, drawing from last year's rightfully lauded Hurry Up, We're Dreaming as well as from the band's gold-filled catalogue, which spans 11 years. Though the sold-out crowd was generally talkative and distracted, appearing more captivated by their smartphones than anything else, an exceptionally sexy rendition of "Midnight City" (damn, that sax sounded good live!) and the standout encore track "Outro"—complete with string section—succeeded in fully captivating the audience. TONY photographer Loren Wohl was there to snap the action.
