Chromeo

8 p.m. Monday, October 24. The Pageant, 6161 Delmar Boulevard.

You need a healthy dose of nostalgia, either real or imagined, to get down with Chromeo. The Montreal-based duo is made up of guitarist/vocalist Dave 1 (David Macklovitch) and keyboardist/beatmaker P-Thugg (Patrick Gemayel), and their love of '80s-derived synth-funk and electro-pop is so retro-minded that the band may as well travel by a uranium-fueled Delorian. Last year's Business Casual continued the band's uptempo, uptown flavor with Dave 1's white-boy soul croon and P-Thugg's manipulation of vintage synths and his ever-present talkbox. Picture a band somewhere between Hall & Oates' blue-eyed soul and Zapp & Roger's mutant funk, and Chromeo starts to make a lot more sense.

Chromeo is Dave 1 and P-Thugg.

Look For: Some so-bad-it's-good '80s dancing and a high concentration of neon clothing in the crowd.
