"There’s always a bit of trepidation when a concert has been split into a doubleheader and the front of your ticket reads “early show,” even when that show was added later due to such high demand. We all know a line will have formed for the late show even as the early performance continues inside, so what kind of time constraints might come into play? And with a second, more primetime slot looming, might the night’s first outing be more of a low energy trial run, so as to preserve gusto for the main event? These questions are natural. When M83 is at the top of the bill, they’re also rendered irrelevant."
