Now Hear This! A weekend on the Delmar Loop: ‘Let’s Go’ to Matt & Kim
The Brooklyn-based duo makes a triumphant return to The Pageant this Sunday, Nov. 4, at 7 p.m., after previous memorable visits to St. Louis, including our very own WUStock in 2011. Featuring Matt Johnson on vocals and keyboard with Kim Schifino pounding away on her drums, Matt & Kim (their name is the only uncreative thing about them) are an indie dance outfit that has been making music since 2005. Their fourth album, “Lightning,” was released very recently, featuring an electrifying first single, “Let’s Go.” The video for the single is like a live version of Awkward Family Photos. Look for them to play cuts from the new album along with old favorites like “Daylight” and “Cameras.”

- November 4, 7 p.m.
- $20 in advance
Even if you know only their most famous songs, their energy is infectious and crowd-pleasing. If the audience is lucky, Schifino will do her famous booty dance while standing on the hands of adoring fans in the front row. The $20 advance ticket price is an absolute bargain, and wouldn’t you rather be dancing at a concert than typing on your MacBook in the library?
