Public Access Media + Caffe Vita = Chromeo

| October 6, 2008

We were very lucky to have had the opportunity to grace the presence of such an awesome act.

Chromeo is Moog riffs, luxurious harmonies, macho guitar solos and real-deal songcraft. After their performance on main stage we ushered them through way of candle lit underground passage, bypassing the thousands of screaming fans, and into our make-shift studio for a smooth sexy interview. Enjoy!
