In what my R&B-loving wife considers the best news of the year, the Rialto Theatre announced that Chromeo is playing a show here on October 10. Chromeo, a funk-loving Canadian duo, has been cranking out fun and danceable singles for a decade (including the always amusing "Needy Girl"
), but they're currently touring to promote their best album yet, White Women
, which features a bunch of songs that will likely end up as hummable backgrounds to commercials (like "Jealous" in some cider ad
). I've seen these guys twice, including their mainstage performance at this year's Coachella, and they put on a talkbox-heavy dance party that's about as straight-up entertaining as any show I've seen. Good time fun, for sure.
Tickets for the all-ages Chromeo show, with Wave Racer opening, go on sale Friday and range from $25 to $33
