Chromeo puts on stellar show

Electrofunk duo Chromeo performed Saturday at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe, Ariz. Tokimonsta, an electronic music producer and disc jockey, opened up the show for Chromeo. Her performance was captivating, but did not resemble her typical sound. I attribute this to the fact that she was opening for a more mainstream artist. My personal favorite track of Tokimonsta’s is “Darkest (Dim),” but, unfortunately, she did not play it on Saturday. Her set mostly revolved around her newest album, titled Half Shadows, which I recommend you check out.
