Chromeo Premieres Fancy Footwork Video, Announces West Coast July Tour And Shuts Down Every North American Festival This Summer!
Giant, menacing legs? A David Lynch floor? A spectacular tango dance? P-Thugg wearing a tuxedo? Sounds like a new Chromeo video! Check out the curiously elegant clip for Fancy Footwork, premiered exclusively on Myspace this week (with a great first media look from Perez Hilton!)
Straight from their searing Coachella performance, P-Thugg and Dave 1, better known as Chromeo gear up to take on the summer festival circuit, announce their own summer tour of the West Coast and prepare to take to the outdoor stage for a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on June 17th.
“Coachella was winding down. Then an odd chant, coming from the last tent: ‘Chro-MEE-oh, OOOOOOoooo,’ followed by a blast of light that revealed a solid third of festival populationŠ Dave 1 and P-Thugg blasted their Prince-biting electrofunk to the metal rafters, earning their billing for the night, and leaving no question that they weren’t just fluffers for the act to follow.”
-LA WEEKLY ON CHROMEO’S 2008 COACHELLA PERFORMANCE
Of great note is the June 17th release date of Chromeo’s much anticipated, re-release, Fancy Footwork: Deluxe Edition (Vice).
