Before Chromeo played an evening set at Bonnaroo that climaxed just as the sun retired behind the Tennessee skyline, the dance duo of David Macklovitch and Patrick Gemayel (a.k.a. Dave 1 and P-Thugg) let Rolling Stone's cameras trail their every move. Macklovitch did his best to caption the action:

"Signing Bonnaroo posters before the show. As you can tell I'm cheating off Pee's answers."

"Seconds before we start playing, I'm thinking about my Bitcoin. Just kidding, I'm trying to remember what song we're going to start with. Just kidding, I'm fantasizing about Khaleesi."

"My trusted guitar tech Andrew hands me my guitar. Yes, it's all chrome. Well, it's actually all solid aluminum  neck, body, headstock, the whole thing  and it weighs about three Les Pauls."

"We spent our entire recording advance chroming out our stage setup because we knew it'd look good in pictures like these. The light at Bonnaroo was just spectacular."
