A Night With ChromeoBeyond UCF, Culture, Music, News, Night Life, REVIEW — By Sarah Harper on September 30, 2011 at 12:03 pm Tweet
Currently touring North America on their Night Falls Tour, Chromeo finally played in Orlando for the first time… ever. And unsurprisingly, they broke it down, engaged the crowd and caused their fans to dance in the most absurd of ways, which leads me to boldly conclude: Chromeo played the best show I’ve seen all year.
As Chromeo stepped on stage and their lights began flashing, the words “Chrome-o” projected from the speakers causing the crowd to roar in excitement. From there, the duo showed us what Fancy Footwork is all about as Dave1 sang and P-Thug jammed out on his keyboard and synthesizer. Playing both new and old favorites, each second became funkier and funkier as they played “Bonafied Lovin’”, “Hot Mess”, “Don’t Turn the Light’s Off” and of course, “Tenderoni.” And when the duo finally jammed to their current hit “When the Night Falls,” it became obvious Chromeo’s music is the only beat their fans want to dance to When the Night Falls.
Whether it’s their energy, great music, or their obvious ability to put the words “Chrome” in Chromeo, a night with Chromeo is like the night Juliett spoke about when missing Romeo. While I think back to other nights’ experience, I just want to relive it. Maybe I’m biased because Dave1 is part of the tribe, or because Chromeo is the only successful Arab/Jewish duo that I do know, but regardless, I’m looking forward to the next time these crazy cats roll into town again.
