Where: Brooklyn, NY
It is telling that Tanlines can still put on an amazingly fun dance show in the stifling, sticky summer heat of Brooklyn; otherwise, the duo's synthetic tropical beats would seem to be the product of poseurs. With a perpetual crowd of sweat-drenched, gyrating bodies at their feet, it's clear that Jesse Cohen and Eric Emm can bring the heat as well as they can handle it. With an upcoming full-length on True Panther and remixes for Glasser, Telepathe, and Au Revoir Simone already under their belts, the boys of Tanlines will soon be bringing their tropical flavor to many more ears.
