When was the last time you went to an awesome party? Like, a party that was actually fun, where all the music was great, everyone around you was having a blast, and you never wanted it to end? Well, if you saw Matt and Kim's House of Blues show this weekend, your answer is probably "Last Saturday night." Feeling more like the best house party ever than a concert, the on-and-off stage Brooklyn duo's contagious pleasure for their craft ensured a fiesta for the ages.
For those who are unfamiliar with Matt and Kim, they've been curating an innovative brand of indie music since 2006 by mixing elements of pop, electro, hip-hop, punk, rock and "Who gives a fuck?" Even with their unique sound, however, what makes this pair stand out from modern-rock monotony is an insanely punchy live show. Once the duo bounded onto the stage to a mashup of "Baba O'Riley" and "It Takes Two," Matt and Kim's energy did not go down until the lights went up.
