I flipped through the pages of SPIN magazine’s September 2010 issue and noticed a photo that made me smile.
The photo showed Kim Schifino of Matt and Kim standing on a drum throne holding her drumstick proudly in the air before crowd of thousands at New York’s Coney Island in August 2010.
With bandmate Matt Johnson sitting nearby at his keyboard, Schifino made her signature move to pump the crowd up.
Those guys look like fun, I thought. I need to check out one of their shows.
Later that month, I noticed Matt and Kim had a show scheduled at Detroit’s Majestic Theater. I bought tickets to the show without even knowing what their music sounded like.
I had a gut feeling they wouldn’t let me down, and I was right.
