Concert Review: Big Boi and Chromeo

For those who missed last night's free concert, it was a big one (literally). Fan's of Big Boi from the dynamic hip-hop duo Outkast, as well as fans of electro-funk Chromeo, shuffled in by the thousands.---

Seeing as how this event was the second to last of the Twilight Concert Series, it came as no surprise that attendance doubled that of last week's performance. The crowd was an eclectic mix of rap and electric dance music lovers, both of which brought their freshest dance moves to the scene and some even to the stage. Lucky fans of Big Boi, also known as Anton Patton, were welcomed onto the entertainment platform to share the limelight for a song or two. 

For those who missed the opener Chromeo, W Lounge invited fans to bust a move at a special  (special because it was fifteen bucks a pop) after-party where the electric twosome Dave 1 and P-Thugg played an hour-long set. Attendees were dripping sweat not just from dance exertion but from sheer proximity. The very small venue was packed inside and even out on the patio. People sat and stood on speakers and lined the walls like sardines in a can.

However, all was worth it for a closer glimpse of the superstars, and to hear mixes off their most recent album Fancy Footwork. "Tenderoni," and "Bonafide Lovin" were spun as well as a few random tunes like The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. In addition to the old, some new songs were performed to promote their new album, Business Casual, to be released September 14th. For more information head to their official site.
