Be Our Guest: Chromeo

Win free tickets to see Chromeo on Saturday, May 4, at Catalyst

Canadians Dave 1 and P-Thugg have made a career out of getting funky.

Their duo Chromeo draws from synth-pop, disco and blue-eyed soul. All their songs ride a weird line of being feel good, dance-pop, silly, self-aware, and upbeat music. Nothing wrong with that.

The duo are clearly having fun on stage every time they groove for the audience. They come to Catalyst this time around, leaving their instruments at home and bringing a DJ set. It’s sure to be just as groove-tastic. The new king of ’80s electro-funk, Dam Funk, opens with his own DJ set.

INFO: 9 p.m. Saturday, May 4. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $25 adv/$28 door. Information:


Go to before 11 a.m. on Thursday, May 2, to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the show.
