Chromeo @ First Ave

The last time I saw Chromeo was at the 2008 Lollapalooza.  Which at the time, I really liked Chromeo, but didn't feel they were all that great live.  Maybe it was the fact they were playing during the day, or it was really hot out, but it just wasn't doing it for me.  That was exactly the opposite this go around at First Ave.  The set was around 90 minutes, but it seemed to fly by.  Matt attended this one with me and loved it too.  The initial "Chromeo" chant, quickly followed by "Fancy Footwork" set the tone for the show.  It was awesome.  I guess I didn't realize how many great songs they have, but almost every song they played I was like "Oh yeah, I like this song too!"  

The band was just here a year ago, and said even though the last show was great, this one was even better.  And it showed, the place was packed and it seemed like everyone there danced the entire time.  They even claimed that if they do a live album, they'll record it at First Ave.  

Supposedly Chromeo are going to get their very own star too.  I'll have to get a pic of that when it goes up.  If they come back again next year, I'm definitely going.
