Prepare to be electrified by the funky stylings of two-man band Chromeo when they return to the McDonald Theatre. Their latest show, Head Over Heels World Tour, features hits from their new studio album Head Over Heels. This is the first time they have returned since their 2014 tour and (speaking from personal experience) you will not want to miss this one. Chromeo features electronic beats with funk grooves, combining rock hits of the ’80s with disco beats of the ’70s. The duo consists of singer/guitarist David “Dave 1” Macklovitch and keyboardist Patrick “P-Thugg” Gemayel.
Chromeo hit the scene in 2004 with debut album She’s In Control featuring the hit track “Needy Girl.” This tour supports their fifth album, released June 15. Hailing from Montreal, the two speak both English and Canadian French; several of their songs are in French. Dave 1 is no stranger to the disco scene, as he is the brother of A-Trak, a DJ known for his band Duck Sauce.
At their last show in Eugene I was blown away by the lighting, effects and atmosphere the duo creates. Chromeo’s hits bring a smile to your face and a swing to your hips that lasts long after the concert ends. If you’re in the mood to two-step, come show off your fancy footwork 8 pm Thursday, Sept. 6. All ages, $29.50- $108.50 at TicketsWest and the McDonald Theatre box office.
