Contest: Win Matt and Kim Tickets

By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 10, 2008 5:05PM

2008_11_matt_kim.jpgMatt and Kim play Subterranean tomorrow, and we have a pair of tickets for a lucky Chicagoist reader for the show. When we walked past the club yesterday one of our friends saw the marquee and asked if Matt and Kim were from Chicago, since they always seemed to be playing here. They're not, but Chicago does seem to have become the ridiculously energetic duo's second home, and they attract massive crowd of dance-happy listeners to all their area appearances. The band's super simple mixture of singer Matt Johnson's adenoidal vocals and pumping organ chords and drummer Kim Schifino's wide eyed smiling drum thumps ensnares any within earshot. We would say their enthusiasm in infectious, but that would be understating the vibe they throw off from onstage. No one leaves a Matt & Kim show in a dry t-shirt or without a smile.
