My water comes straight from the tap

You forgot, didn't you? You totally forgot how much you LOVED Matt & Kim. You got them confused with She & Him, and remembered that you only like listening in those melancholy moments. NO! Matt & Kim is nothing like that! Last year's Grand was just one beautiful explosion after the other. Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino are two totally insane dance punk masters who might be the best representation of the term "dynamic duo" ever envisioned.

Earlier this month they released Sidewalks and I have restored my joyful commitment to shake it. Shake ehhhttttttt. I'm ready to travel for a show again. I'm in full-on stalker oh-my-God-I-could-be-your-friend mode. But I couldn't be their friend. I am nowhere near as cool or as brave. I will just stay here and stay safe, with my silly four-strands-of-pink-hair punk posery.

But oh my God, seriously. PleaseIneedtoseethemlive.

I slept through this tour that just ended.

Do you know why?

I was so mad that all my cries about THEM being the SOLE reason I wanted to go to Lollapalooza where unheeded.

What. That's the way I remember it.

And those bottles are just for show.

I'll leave you with this. It is unmitigated evidence that Kim Schifino could be my best friend.

I have always said if Beyonce came up to me and said “Kim (yes, in this daydream Beyonce knows me) I want you to come be one of my back up dancers,” I would have to tell Matt I am leaving the band. Well, we all know this isn’t going to happen, so to satisfy myself I dance at our shows. I decided I had to step it up though and bring out not just a booty dance, but a booty dance on top of the crowd.

I have done it twice now. The first time was in San Francisco. See the video below.

Buy all the Matt and Kim you can get your hands on and that is an order!
