Chromeo, Mayer Hawthorne & The County, Sammy Bananas 

When: Tue., Oct. 11, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $26-30
Nostalgia ain't going nowhere—might as well have skilled artisans reviving shit, right? And that's what this bill offers: two of the top pasticheurs in North America. Montreal duo Chromeo sleaze up electro and disco with utmost skill and oleaginousness. Mayer Hawthorne and the County flash back in style to the intricately arranged and heartfelt '60s soul that Motown Records mass-produced to world-changing effect. That Hawthorne's a nerdy-looking Caucasian adds a crucial WTFness to his superior craftsmanship and Curtis/Smokey-esque vocals. DAVE SEGAL
