Preview: Chromeo with Mayer Hawthorne at the Newport

Those looking to dance in Columbus this Tuesday have no shortage of options, but those looking to do so with an ironic wink should opt for the Chromeo/Mayer Hawthorne double bill that hits the Newport that night.

Montreal duo Chromeo, boasting a remix EP and a hilarious video for power-gloss single “When the Night Falls,” will headline the night with new millennial disco funk. Their music is almost as sharp as their sense of humor.

Hawthorne, Detroit’s sweet-voiced soul white boy, is a little less of a goofball, though not above setting his single “A Long Time” to retro urban dance videos. He’ll set the stage with some party tracks of his own.
