What You'll Get
Reaching toward a rock star is a popular way to let them know that, unlike most fans, you appreciate both their musical work and their supple hand skin. Raise the roof with today’s deal: for $16, you get one general-admission ticket to see the LG Ones to Watch Presents Chromeo show at House of Blues Chicago on Saturday, October 1, at 7 p.m. (up to a $33.50 value online, including all Ticketmaster fees). Doors open at 6 p.m.
Canadian electrofunk duo Chromeo exhales party-starting inertia, kicking off its Night Falls Tour by rolling out a carpet of dance-floor passports. Melding the talents of guitarist, vocalist, and French-literature buff Dave 1 with the dexterous fingers and throwback savvy of synthmaster P-Thugg, Chromeo has earned reverence from funkophiles for its slick grooves and mastery of jam architecture. Fans can expect congenial beats, riffing Moogs, and song craft that father-and-son yachts can enjoy together in support of the band’s latest album, Business Casual. Inflating the soulful evening, singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Mayer Hawthorne channels wandering Motown spirits with a retroactive Detroit sound, and mustachioed party maestro DJ Sammy Bananas sets the scene with genre jumping and remixes that rumble like tubas in a Cuisinart.
Attendees 17 and older can stick around HOB Chicago to continue their rug-shearing during the official Chromeo after-party, presented by Girls & Boys Chicago. Beginning at 10:30 p.m., the thunderous jubilee features a DJ set from Chromeo, as well as performances from electronic artists such as Midnight Conspiracy, Compact Disco, and a yodeling Beatamax player.
