Chromeo, Holy Ghost, Telephoned and Rude Dudes 

When: Fri., Aug. 13, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $20-23

There is a certain kneejerk reaction that Chromeo—the dual effort of Dave 1 and the unfortunately named P-Thugg—is just another mouthbreathing revisionist dance act chumming the ocean of '80s pop for something to repackage and resell to a generation numb to the irony of it all. Yet the Montreal pair couldn't be more sincere, grounded, and intelligent—you don't get your Ph.D. in French literature between tours (as Dave 1 currently is) if you are too busy ripping off Val Young grooves. Never claiming to reinvent the dance scene, this proletarian pair is intent on throwing the best damn party ever on a nightly basis during their Business Casual tour (booking hotshit DFA duo Holy Ghost to support is a great start).
