Tuesday night electrofunk duo Chromeo — David Macklovitch, aka Dave 1, and Patrick Gemayel, aka P-Thugg — busted out the vocoder and lady-legged synths for their first ever Miami show. Touring behind their 2010 LP, Business Casual, the pair from Montreal came out to a chant of “Chro-me-oh. Oh-oh” (to the tune of “The March of the Winkies”) and played a set nearly as smooth as Dave 1’s bespoke duds. Here are some photos from the show. You can view more on the Beached Miami Facebook page, and make sure to check out our latest podcast, which features an interview with P-Thugg.
Dave 1 (left) is Jewish, dapper, and sports an 80-tooth smile. P-Thugg is Arabic, dresses for the couch, and wears a wry scowl. Self-described as as “the only successful Arab/Jewish partnership since the dawn of human culture,” the childhood friends make for an adorable and funky odd couple, trading grins and knowing glances and even hugging during the set and complementing each other note for note.
