Chromeo at Lollapalooza

Posted by admin On August - 4 - 2008

-A.S. Chicago, IL Chromeo is cheesy, pseudo-80s dance-pop. Kind of like Moris Day and the Time except the white, Jewish and Canadian version. Lots of synth, talk box and fun.

I am going to resist the urge to make a more cowbell reference.

These guys don’t rock hard, I can’t even tell you how good of musicians they are. That’s not really what I was paying attention to. Their songs are catchy, dance-able, and everyone I saw there was having a grand old time (except for Zack and my brother apparently).There has to be some sort of Trojan advertising opportunity here.

A lot of their songs are as goofy as their banter. Dave 1 told fans that “in Canada they don’t say girlfriend or cream puff…well maybe we say cream puff on the Sabbath. We say tenderloin.” A great intro to the song of the same name. He also made sure to tell the crowd that he was shvitzing.

I don’t think I’d really spend much time sitting around listening to these guys, but I wouldn’t be horribly upset if a song crept into a playlist. Maybe that’s just the 80s child in me.
Dave 1 made sure he gave mention to Da Bearssss and Da Bullsssss.

~Z.T.~ Andy may have loved it, but I thought Chromeo was a cheap gimmicky wanna be 80s knock-off. I tried to get into them and was playing an internal mind game of “Am I into this? Maybe a little. Should I be? Should I really need to try this hard?” After 20 minutes I announced, “I need to be listening to anything but this” and moved on to the Black Kids. Not black. Not kids. Not good.
