The Chemical Brothers brought the dance party to a packed crowd at the Shrine Auditorium. 

Black Madonna welcomed the crowed with a pounding 1.5-hour set.  She had a blast spinning deep cuts and new favorites. Black Madonna clapped along to the beat and a huge smile would flash across her face when she dropped into a new song or tempo. The crowd absolutely ate it up and cheered when they recognized a song.

The Chemical Brothers were awe inspiring. They walked out on stage, waved for all of 5 seconds and then got right down into the music. For two hours they delivered a set of tracks pulled from their latest record No Geography and past favorites.

Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall, the men behind the moniker, stood center stage and mixed live while a huge screen behind them projected trippy visuals that changed with each song. The music combined with the light show and projections stood as a testament to the genius The Chemical Brothers possess.

If you missed this show, you can get a glimpse of the sonic majesty by listening to The Chemical Brothers new album No Geography.
