Wherefore art thou Chromeo? In their artist trailer backstage.

Before arousing ACL Fest with an hour of synthesized smooth funk last Sunday, the Montreal duo of Dave 1 and P-Thugg welcomed the Chronicle into their dressing room to discuss the bands and albums that influenced their highly specified style and sound. Then they tried to recall what bars they went to the night before.

Chromeo returns to ACL Fest on Sunday, Oct. 12, 5pm.
