In case you aren't familiar with Chromeo, I've prepared a little crash course for you. Some facts:
*They wrote and performed the above song, "Nice N Clean," for the children's television program Yo Gabba Gabba. It's probably the best song ever written about personal hygiene. Except, perhaps, for Del tha Funkee Homosapien's "If You Must."
*Chromeo, from Montreal, have been known to jovially refer to themselves as "the only successful Arab/Jewish partnership since the dawn of human culture."
*Chromeo will allegedly be releasing their first full-length record since Fancy Footwork this summer.
*Chromeo are appearing at Bonnaroo with Darryl Hall. Here's a sample of how awesome that will be.
*Dave 1 — the glasses/guitar guy — is (or, at least until recently, was) earning his Ph.D in French Literature at Columbia University.
The flossin' electro-funk Canadians will be appearing at Mercy Lounge Aug. 26 with Holy Ghost supporting. Chromeo's site. Holy Ghost's site. Tickets are $20 and go on sale here on Wednesday. And since it's kind of related, I thought I'd mention that Yo Gabba Gabba's doing a live tour, and they'll be at TPAC on Oct. 21. Now, show me what you've got in terms of fancy footwork.
