"Hey world, we are going to be doing the last shot of our music video in the middle of the Brooklyn bridge at 6:30 today! Come and get wild!" - Matt & Kim, 5/3/2011

--
Kim of Matt & Kim reacts to the news of The Thermals playing THREE NYC-area shows around their Terminal 5 date (more by Jessica Amaya)
Kim

Seething with an unquenchable jealousy due to their future tourmates The Thermals adding THREE shows in their hometown, NYC's Matt & Kim called their agent to enact revenge, and they did it! Matt & Kim will play their own headlining show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 25th. Tickets are on Fan Club presale now, AmEx presale begins Wed (5/4) at noon, and regular sale starts Friday (and it will probably sell out much quicker than the Thermals' shows at the Bell House).

So far, no reports have come in of The Thermals reaction to the news at Maxwell's over the weekend (they probably didn't know yet), but maybe it will be a different story when they play the NYU event on Thursday (5/5) at Le Poisson Rouge (advance tickets available for NYU students only).

Matt & Kim go on tour with The Thermals a week after the MHoW show. Lets hope they settle their differences before then or at least before the pair play a sold-out Terminal 5 on June 29th. (Note: I hope you know I'm kidding about their differences.)

Look for Matt & Kim on the Brooklyn Bridge TODAY (5/3) (see above Tweet). All tour dates and some video of what happens when Matt & Kim get angry (their "Cameras" video) is below...

What are Matt & Kim fans like?

Posted by Anonymous | May 3, 2011 5:19 PM

Considering how bad Matt and Kim suck, they're fans must be really clueless and stupid.

Who's Matt & Kim?

Posted by Anonymous | May 3, 2011 5:29 PM

Can the drummer from Matt & Kim ever take a picture with out having her mouth open and teeth showing? I challenge you to find one. Also they are a terrible band.

I am not a huge fan of their music but they seem genuine and overall nice people, people doing what they want to do.

on a side note, this site is so fucking harsh in the comments on a daily basis. BV has got some pissed off, faceless internet fans.

carry on and say what you will...

if people doing what they want to do is the definition of genuine, then murderers, liars, cheats, scoundrels, killers, and sociopaths are all genuine too.

Posted by GoneGardens | May 3, 2011 6:28 PM

Please, people. Stop liking bands like this. Used to be you had to be an above average musician to actually warrant notoriety. Now as long as you have arms you can pretty much be a famous musician.

I guess after he made his film trilogy, Crispin Glover turned his energies to directing videos of retards making music.

They're good actors though.

Four years ago you hipsters drooled over this band. No, the music is not complex or requiring expert musicianship to create, but its goddamn fun. Plus they are two of the most down to earth musicians in Brooklyn today, and are genuinely nice people who love their fans.

Posted by Anonymous | May 3, 2011 9:07 PM

Fine, whoever tells them what to do is good at what they do.

LCD retires and this band keeps making more music.

There is no God.

Guys, I am so sorry the music gestapo keeps knocking down your doors and forcing you into a shower and making you listen to Matt and Kim. I am so glad I don't live under a military regime like you.

A Matt & Kim murder/suicide would be pretty sweet

dude/ette, you said that perfectly. the animosity, real or fake, that comes across on this blog boggles the mind. i've never been one to be labeled naïve, but man, i'm so happy i got to experience a lot of cool bands in their day, from pixies to nmh, etc., as well as cool places to see shows like the knitting factory and tonic on the les, prior to such hate started showing up on message boards. peeps, if you have this much built in frustration, go create something. seriously. do something more productive with your time than make fun of _______.

Why you gotta be all assumin' everyone who likes them some music - and comments here - is a little Brooklyn hipster maggot?

^ in case you haven't noticed, this forum is a breeding ground for angry, trendy, cynical hipster douchebags who claim they are not hipsters.

Also there is a fair population of Hummusfolk who simply point their browsers her for the rich amount of quality hummus recipes and phytonutrient anecdotes frequently posted.

Wheres Nikki Six tonight? I want him to autograph my double D's and spread peanut butter on my labia.

"in case you haven't noticed, this forum"

This IS NOT a forum. It's a blog that allows comments. Comments ain't no forum. If you leave a comment card at a restaurant, do you say "Sorry, I had to publish my thoughts into that forum"?

No.

This isn't a forum you fucking idiots.

"Comments ain't no forum"? Now, who is the fucking idiot?

Well, I (11:26) have opted for being cool in reality rather than in the little Brooklyn Disneyland hipster bubble where all losers and weirdos go to hide and have a high school do-over.

Your second paragraph negates your first.
