Have you ever listened to a song and you swear to yourself you had to see this band to see if they are real? I came to the Wolf Parade party a little late. I had heard their second album, At Mount Zoomer, from a friend who had made a copy for me and I liked it, but for some reason it wasn’t until the follow up, Expo 86, that I really came around to see what amazing musicians and songwriters Wolf Parade are. The band reminded me of that at Ottobar on Aug. 29.

Like a romantic suitor in one of their electro-funk songs, the gents of Chromeo don’t mind taking their time. And the payoff was worth the wait when David “Dave 1” Macklovitch and Patrick “P-Thugg” Gemayel blasted through 9:30 Club in twin shows recently.
