On March 15, synthpop legends Depeche Mode played their first-ever South By Southwest show in Austin, Texas. The rare intimate club gig, which was their first proper concert since 2010 (aside from a private show they did for "Live on Letterman"), was presented by Yahoo! at new venue Brazos Hall and attended by the likes of Usher and celebrity manager Scooter Braun, and it was a major black celebration for fans who'd won coveted tickets via a SXSW lottery drawing.

If you weren't one of the lucky 800 festivalgoers who made it into the show--or if you didn't get down to Austin this year--here's your chance to check out highlights from Depeche's set, featuring a mix of new cuts from the band's hotly anticipated 13th album Delta Machine. Check out the Mode's fantastic performance!

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
