Chromeo @ Salt City Sounds 06.23 w/ Harry Hudson, AlunaGeorge
On a chill Sunday night in SLC, The Complex was filled with music lovers. The crowd at The Complex split into the VIP area and the 21+ area. Just to the right side and lifted above the crowds, the VIP area offered a spectacular view of both the crowd and the stage. A full bar and tasty drinks hydrated those over 21 and offered a separate viewing area from the main crowd.
Opening the night, Harry Hudson danced up and down the stage, celebrating his debut album, Yesterday’s Tomorrow Night. In the middle of a song, he made a graceful swan dive for his mike as it slipped out of his hand and almost bounced off the stage. Playing songs like “Just Slide” and “Yellow Lights,” Hudson closed his set with “Love Dad.”
AlunaGeorge, an English duo comprised of Aluna Francis (performer) and George Reed (producer), graced the stage with a dark, hip-hop and dance vibe. She played her top three songs, “You Know You Like It ft. DJ Snake,” “Klaidescope Love ft. Kaytranada” and “Automatic ft. Zhu.” She gave an amazing performance. The duo made the SLC music lovers ignite.
Chromeo, headlining this Salt City Sounds extravaganza, is an electro-funk group. A Utah favorite, Chromeo has visited SLC before and draws bigger crowds each time. Rocking an “A Christmas Story” leg-lamp-like keyboard and a “Grease Lightning” leather jacket, David “Dave 1” Macklovitch and Patrick “P-Thugg” Gemayel rocked the night away once again. Having formed in 2002, the duo has played together going on seventeen years and are always give a rocking time for all.
