Chromeo DJ Set

When: Sat., Oct. 10, 10 p.m. 2009

Smart-stupid Montrealelectrofunk provocateurs Chromeo began in 2004 with LP She's in Control and 2007 follow-up Fancy Footwork.Now the Arab-Jew duo is releasing its first record in two years, the DJ-KiCKS compilation, hence the DJ date in San Francisco's SOMA district this weekend. Face it, cheesy, obscure synth jams just make you feel good, and P-Thugg and Dave1 can manage to make even a cover of the Eagles' "I Can't Tell You Why" sound rad. Part theme song to Airwolf, part Daft Punk, Chromeo conveys everything you need to know with those sexy, female mannequin legs they use as their keyboard stands. Too bad all we have is this comp and new single "Night By Night" to tide us over until their new LP next year. On Saturday, Oct. 10. 8 p.m., $17.
