AKA Goodbye Forever Matt and Kim
I went to an Alt J concert earlier this year and a group called Matt and Kim was in the opening line up. In their 30 minute set they made a life long enemy of me.
The gist of the matter is they are annoying and obnoxious thirty somethings. Like that episode of Daria where 30 something teen magazine writter Val comes to hang out at the high school unaware of the second hand embarrasement she is causing everyone around her.
Matt's whiny, nasaly voice paired with Kim's incessant screaming about being a member of the IBTC and sad attempts at twerking were enough to make one beg to be placed in sensory depravation, but then they brought in the big guns! Playing rap music to show how they are so cool and down with the young people!
Wazzup! Are we young people still doing the Rock a Way? BALLIN'!
It does not give them any cred, in my eyes, to play 30 seconds of a DMX song because these flower headband teens at their shows do not know who DMX is - that is unless they watch Iyanla Fix My Life - because their target audience were not born in the early 80's unlike Matt and Kim. Their aught baby audience might actually know a Fetty Wap song, did they think of that? (Oops, I guess I spoke too soon.) I hope to never see or hear from them again, even though it seems they visit my neck of the woods pretty regularly. Since I never heard or saw of them before this concert I think I'll be safe.
If you're brave, here's an actual clip of the show I saw live and in color.
