Matt & Kim
We’ve been giving away a fair amount of tickets recently, and there’s a whole lot more to come… But first, there’s Matt & Kim, who are playing CD101’s sold-out Summerfest this Saturday, along with The Living Things, Band of Skulls, Company of Thieves, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, Stellastarr* and Columbus’ own Envelope. As stated previously here, Matt & Kim have so much child-like energy onstage that it’s near impossible not to get caught up in it. Expect lots of smiling.
Like I said, it’s sold out, but we’ve got a a pair of tickets to give away. To enter this contest, send a blank e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject MATT AND KIM. A winner will be randomly chosen on Friday morning, 8/21.
Cd101 summerfest just got wavy . Envelope won the contest of public opinion. Oddly enough, he may be the only rapper in Columbus that truely follows the traditional formula of blowing up in his city. Neighborhood backing—->Crews—->Rocking the Party—->Record Sales—->Radio play.
(Granted radio play is on CD101 not 107.5, record sales are at indie rock stores not hoodspots, the party is either at Skullys or Bourbon Street not Icon or Club Ice, the Crews are BSA, Thought Set, Weightless instead of the Bloods, and his neighborhood is Clintonville not Livingston Ave. )
Too Short, told y’all:”Get in where you fit in”.
Anyway ,Envelope will be performing on @ the LC alongside Matt & Kim, Stellastar —-who has some song that isn’t about spatial intelligence or night vision—- called Graffiti Eyes,Black Joe Louis and Honey Bears,the Living Things, Band of Skulls, and Company of Thieves.
Tickets are 5 bucks.
Good job Columbus.
Flosstradamus are a deejay/remix duo from Chicago that has been doing it big for couple years now. They exist in the weird hybrid Electro/Juke whatever the fuck you call it world that has you playing Lollapalooza one day, and a small club date the next.
I spoke to half of them, J2k aka Young Josh aka Kid Sister’s brother on the phone when I was hanging out at the MilkBar a couple days ago. (J2K is the one with the Slingshot) J2k talked about their worst show, working with De La Soul, the backpack vs. hipster dynamic, and his love for midwest crowd.
what’s good with you?
J2K:Just played Los Angeles last night.
How was it ?
It was cool. The crowd was like 1200 people. It was a blast. It was fun.
Is that your usual turn-out on the West Coast?
It varies. We are playing at a club that holds 600 people in San Diego tonight.
What was your wackest deejay experience?
I wouldn’t say it was the wackest…We were at DJ AM’s club LAX. The people were not into it at all. It was a jiggy crowd. After about Ten minutes some girl told us we sucked. We got booted off the tables. Everyone hated us.
Did you still get paid?
Yeah. Of course. We went back 6 months later and killed it.
