Matt & Kim played McCarren Park Pool in 2008 and I went as a fan right before I finally made the move to start the site. I remember going mainly cause it was a free show, but also because I heard about an exciting duo that was supposed to be fun to see live. Matt & Kim impressed me a great deal that day, but the way the crowd was enamored by their presence was what really struck me.
Now we are 4 years past that point, and wow, these two have come a long way since then. Not too much has changed though. The duo are still cheerfully fun live, and the crowd still eats out of their hand. While they may not be my favorite band in the world, there’s no denying that these guys are just plain old fashioned fun live. I don’t know how anyone could sit through their live show and not have a blast. They’re just contagious.
