Matt & Kim at the Congress Theater on 11.10.2012
Matt and Kim played a nearly sold-out show on Saturday night at the Congress Theater (11/10) with openers Oberhofer as part of a larger US tour together. The sweaty all-ages crowd was made up of mostly teenagers as older attendees stuck to the balcony. Matt and Kim consistently talked about how thrilled they were to be playing at such a large venue. In signature fashion, they bounced around the stage with explosive energy, weaving their material through covers of pop and hip hop tracks.
If you missed the show, Matt & Kim will return to Chicago on February 22 to play UIC Pavilion with tourmates Passion Pit. Tickets for that show go on sale this Saturday (11/17) at noon CST. Stay tuned for presale information.
