Montreal synth-pop duo Chromeo is unapologetically ‘80s. It’s Hall and Oates with neatly trimmed facial hair. Paula Abdul should be dancing backup in a Jazzercise leotard. But the good thing about this brash flashback is that the band’s latest LP, Business Casual, manages to make old school funk sound fresh. Ironic ’80s remixing only goes so far—these guys mean business, layering actual string arrangements over synthesizer braggadocio.

Be ready to dance.

Mayer Hawthorne and the County and Sammy Bananas open. Doors open at 7; tickets ($30) are still available.
