All the heart emojis go here. The word that may best describe Brooklyn-based duo Matt and Kim is euphoric. Two decades together and six albums, one EP and a collection of remixes later, they remain one of the most joyful and joyous musical duos to connect with live audiences. They’ve navigated an independent career of highs and lows with this contagious elation they bring to every show, every interview, something that Matt Johnson once described in a 2019 chat with Paste as a “hell yeah vibe – Kim (Schifino) comes in with more of a f%ck yeah vibe!” And it’s genuine.
The vibe is yours at Matt and Kim’s show tonight, Tuesday Sept. 12, at Mohawk on Red River on the outdoor stage. LA-based musician Vinny Earley‘s jolting garage/power punk project Vaguess (pronounced “Vegas”) starts out the night. Doors at 7 p.m. And also from LA, the electrifying Stuntdriver performs on Mohawk’s indoor stage. Badass line-up.
