    Saying 'they're boring as shit' is a vicious lie but I will concede that using a 10pm spot on them in 2008 was lame. After ~6pm I'd rather go in another direction.

    ok, sorry, maybe not "boring as shit" but they've never woo'd me live. I always kinda walk away going "eh."

    Its either/or with them. Personally, I didn't like their Coachella set, but they rocked when I saw them at Lolla the same year, and they were awesome last year during their DJ Kicks gig in Hollywood.

    Ha, I saw both of those sets as well and preferred Lolla too. They're a funish-for-a-few-songs act. No more, no less. Certainly shouldn't use night production on them, that's for damn sure.

    And when seeing them live, I prefer to be able to move around at least a bit like I did at Lolla and not packed inside Sahara like a sardine in a can with a bunch of pre-schoolers who never even heard of them before. Come to think of it, I stayed for that entire set only cuz I wanted a good spot for Justice set that followed right after.

    I was just about to say. I had mild interest in Chromeo mostly because a close friend loves them but I was there for Justice. My favorite Sahara set that day was Modeselektor. They killed it.

    See how full of himself the lead singer is. This is the video for their new single. At first I thought the video was kind of a joke but..... I dunno, just see for yourself.



    Its a fucking joke, I met this asshole in real life, and he is just a douche. They have some fun shows, but seriously just look at this asshole.

    I have yet to see them live and have only seen Youtubes from their show at the key club. So yeah I advocate this idea

    Yeah, their set in 2008 was the biggest festival buzzkill ever. You had Modeselektor, SMD and Justice. And thrown in the middle is...Chromeo??? Ugh. I'm still mad about having to sit through that snooze fest.

    Guys were nice to me and my buddies after the show, that's all i said. I'm so sorry that you're such an uninteresting nobody that he didn't pay enough attention to your dicklick dumbass or your whore girl, so maybe next time don't hold such high expectations?
