Body Language at Resident
Body Language and Wild & Free Light Up Resident in DTLA with invigorating performances

Kat Von D and synthesizers: Ladyhawke on the chance encounter that spurned Wild Things

After two critically acclaimed albums and a massive tour for […]

M83 Fox Theater Pomona 2016
Electronic orchestra M83 return with climactic Fox Theatre performance

There’s a reason that French electronic outfit M83 has found a niche in crafting big-budget film soundtracks, and that reason was highlighted emphatically Tuesday night as Anthony Gonzalez led his troupe through a rapturous expose of their discography.

M83 break away from their teen dream fairytales with new album Junk

When French electronic band M83 announced it had returned to the studio, I felt a carefully measured level of excitement rise within me.
