Celebrate 10 years of Matt & Kim’s “Grand” on Thursday, October 24th at The Skyway Theatre!
The Brooklyn-base duo Matt and Kim — Matt on keys and vocals, Kim on drums — started playing energetic dance punk in the early 2000s, then edged into the mainstream in 2007 with that song “Daylight,” which became a viral sensation thanks to its witty video. They held on to that level of popularity by releasing albums and eye-catching videos that enthusiastically melded punk-pop, hip-hop and radio pop.
Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino began dating in 2002 while attending the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and after a couple years of working on art projects together, decided they wanted to start a band. Kim learned to play drums, Matt found a couple of old keyboards, and together they began writing songs inspired by punk and new wave and infused with the duo’s happy energy. They began playing shows around Brooklyn and amassed a devoted fan base who loved to dance to the duo’s music.
Minneapolis is one of only a handful of cities where Matt and Kim will be doing a live recording of their podcast, The Matt and Kim Podcast, at the venue in the hours before the show. It is part of the VIP show ticket package and those who get that ticket can be part of the live audience who sit in on the podcast taping. There is a VIP option via the ticket page http://skywaytheatre.com/event/matt-and-kim/
Kicking the night off will be Beach Goons from California.
Tickets are still available HERE!
