Matt And Kim Touring Summer 2014 Thu, 18 Dec 2014 14:51:26 +0000 en-US hourly 1 XMAS 2014 Thu, 04 Dec 2014 17:00:45 +0000 Hey guys,

I have been thinking about how to top last years “I’m going to buy you something off your Xmas list secret santa extravaganza!” For those of you who don’t know what I am talking about I’ll give you a quick breakdown: Last year around this time I asked the Scream Team to send me their Xmas list either by regular mail, email, tweet or Facebook. I received a shit ton of Xmas lists and I was supposed to pick one person and buy someone something from their list for them. Well the letters were out of control. I couldn’t believe how many Matt and I received. All the letters were awesome and tons of them were so touching that Matt kept catching me crying a lot. I kept telling him I had something in my eye and then I’d hit him to remind him how tough I am. Well I couldn’t give just one gift. We gave a ton of things away. Some small and some big. It was really such a sweet experience.

I don’t want to do the same thing this year. C’mon guys you know me… I like to keep shit fresh. But something that kept coming back to me from last year was how many people didn’t want something for themselves but they wanted something for someone else. These were usually the messages that made me cry like a lil’ baby. So this year I want to do something like that. I want to get letters, emails, tweets. facebook messages, instagram photos… however you can get in touch with me and let me know about that one person or charity or foundation who needs something. It could be a roommate who needs money to buy books for next semester… It could be a family member who is going through some hard times and needs their car fixed…. It could be a charity you feel strongly about… It could be a cable bill that is overdo for another month…. it could be someone who needs a hug. Yes sometimes something as small as a hug could makes someone’s day so much better. They don’t need to be a Scream Team member. Shit they don’t even have to know who Matt and I are but I just want it to be someone who you feel needs a little love in their life.

So from now till December 14th You can send me a letter at: (40 Wooster Street, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10013) (I love getting letters so I think this is the best way) (oh but one thing… give a girl a heads up if you are going to throw glitter in the envelope. Last year I got covered a few times in unexpected glitter and you know that shit is the herpes of the craft world. I swear I am still finding little flakes of glitter on our couch) (oh and one more thing… I also really like postcards so feel free to do that too!). You can also reply to this email, tweet me a message, post on our Facebook page or tag us on Instagram. Man we still don’t have a snapchat so don’t do that. The Matt and Kim up there isn’t us.

But yes get at me. Let’s make this year the year we give a little more of ourselves and make life easier for someone else. Like I said in the last message I have such good feelings for 2015. So lets send out 2014 in the best possible way and turn this shit up for 2015.

big hugs

Secret Santa 2013 Winners! Fri, 20 Dec 2013 02:20:06 +0000 I can’t even begin to explain how blown away i was by everyone who sent a list.  I read every single one… which is why we are announcing this a bit later than we expected cause it took me so much longer than i thought to read through all of them.  I know i mentioned before on instagram and twitter that some were so touching i started crying and some so funny that i did the weird snort laugh i sometimes do.  It’s not a pretty laugh.  And so many people put so much time into their lists.  Others put a lot of glitter in and on their lists.  I kept questioning if matt and i have been to a strip club cause i keep finding glitter on us.  So yes it was really hard to decide but we have picked three winners.   Sorry guys i am rambling again… i know you are thinking shut the fuck up kim…who won.  Ok so…..

Congratulations to our three Secret Santa winners: April Beatson, Jane Ludwig and Jesse Grubbs. Please read the letters attached below.

April will be receiving a Nikon D7100DSLR Camera. Jane, her husband and kids will be receiving a trip to NYC. Jesse will be receiving a bass guitar for his girlfriend.

Along with their main gifts April, Jane and Jesse will receive a matt & kim stocking filled with surprises. Chocolate from our favorite chocolate dudes at Mast Brothers, Butterfly Knife Bottle Opener,  Create Your Own Music Box, Original Gyro Scope (I play with ours for hours while working on music), Lego Storage Box, Matt & Kim Script Tank Top, Lightning Pillowcase, Lightning Blanket, Lightning bolt earrings, Lightning mug, Sidewalk disposable camera, and Matt and Kim earbuds!

But guys i couldn’t stop there because so many of these lists made me stoked.  I just wanted to get everyone everything.  So we kept going through the lists and seeing what we could do.  There was one list where Talaematafi just wanted to give her mom and aunt a massage because they were dealing with a loss in the family and the stress weighing on them.  Another letter was a friend asking for splints for her friend who has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.These splints will make day to day living a bit easier. Zoe just wanted a full bottle of water signed by us because her friend caught a empty bottle. I will say we decided to each take a sip out of that bottle so now you have our DNA!  Some people wanted signed sticks so i went to our practice space and grabbed a bunch of my sticks…..Some people wanted us to donate to a charity of their choice…. some wanted… gummy bears you know i can do that!  It just went on and we kept going.  I wish we could of hit everyone of you back because again i can’t believe how many of you participated in this. Just know though that as we keep doing these scream team things i will do my best to make sure everyone get something in do time! We were so excited to be able to give people at least a little something they wanted.  Fuck yea!!!

Finally, don’t forget to visit where we’ve added a bunch of new items that will be up throughout the new year!  We really appreciate you guys reppin’ our stuff and i hope you like the new designs and items we came up with!  Oh and if i see you on the street wearing one of our shirts i will most likely tackle you.  I just wanted to give you a heads up.  I will try to restrain myself cause now thinking about it if someone randomly tackled me on the street i am pretty sure i would start swinging real quick.  Maybe i’ll just high five you… ok ok a high five and a butt slap!!

Guys have a fucking sweet ass holiday.  Try to remember to not let any holiday stress get you down. Just have a sweet fucking time and also remember to give back a little if you can.  That could be giving your friend your last beer or maybe giving a few singles to someone who could really use it or just hugging someone. Sometimes a hug goes a long way!

Big hugs,

Secret Santa Contest! Sun, 10 Nov 2013 17:10:12 +0000 2013 Secret SantaSo I just finished making my Xmas list for my dad.

So I just finished making my Xmas list for my dad. My family does this every year and then we put them up on his fridge and everyone can see what the others want. It makes it so much easier to shop for someone when you have an idea of what they want. I also find it interesting to see people’s lists. My brother always has a weapon on his. I think he’s been asking for Samuari swords for the past 20 years. One day David… one day. I also was thinking about how I’ve never been involved with a secret santa. My family never did it and I never had a job that did it. I like the idea of surprising someone with a gift. So all of this thinking has lead me to the first ever “I’m going to buy you something off your Xmas list secret santa extravaganza!” Yeah, I should think of a shorter name for it. However, this might just have a ring to it.

So here is how it works.

1. You make a bad ass Xmas list. What have you been dying to have all year? Is it a Samurai sword like my brother has for the last 20 years. The longer the list the better. You’ve been eyeing that new flat screen, huh?… put it down. You’ve been eyeing a new bike…throw it on there. You want a new Bugatti…. well we aren’t doing THAT well so perhaps leave that for next years list.

2. Send us your list! You can either email us or old school style “snail” mail that list to us. Shit, your list could end up on our fridge!!
Email it to:
Physical mail it to: Matt and Kim, 40 Wooster St, 3rd Floor NY, NY 10013
You can even Tweet, Instagram or Facebook it and include the hash tag #MKSecretSanta

Now here is the IMPORTANT PART!! Make sure you get us your Christmas list BEFORE December 6th. On December 10th Matt and I will announce three winners. Those three will get an item that was on their list -AND- a special holiday package that we have personally put together. Guys, I don’t want to brag but I am really good at putting together Xmas packages so you’ll be stoked on what I picked out.

I can’t wait to see what you want and I can’t wait to get it for you!

Oh and i also wanted to let everyone on Scream Team know that we’re are putting up some new T-shirts on the Scream Team Merch page. We’ll also have new Hoodies with speakers in the hood! AND… we are doing autographed vinyl or CDs signed from us to you or if you want to get it for someone else we can put their name on it! We’ll be personalizing them! We’ll let you know once we get the new items up. You will be able to find them here:

I hope you guys are ready for this holiday season!

Big hugs

Also, if you haven’t yet, join the Matt And Kim Scream Team!

Week 12: Twelve Weeks of Summer Raging. GRAND PRIZE WINNER ANNOUNCED! Mon, 02 Sep 2013 22:46:54 +0000 Our “12 Weeks of Summer Raging” are now over… but I know you guys will keep it going at least till October Fest is done right? We just got home from Seattle where we played Bumbershoot. Something crazy happened there…. Matt danced on the crowd. It was amazing!!! I hope some of you were there to see it. If not check out our Instagram page. I think Matt posted a photo of it.

I would like to say huge congrats to Josh Hamilton who won the grand prize package I put together last week. Thanks to everyone who participated and everyone who is a member of the Scream Team. I think we are going to do something like this again during the holidays but just so you know, we will still be giving away festival tickets this Fall plus a few other surprises are coming up. So look for my emails.

When we launched the Scream Team we promised that we would do our best to provide you with pre-sale tickets, exclusive content, exclusive contests and whatever other crazy stuff we could think up. I am now happy to announce that we have added an exclusive Scream Team merchandise section that can only be accessed by ST members. We have had the It’s Alright shirts on tour but not for sale online. So we decided this item would be available to order for Scream Team members only. We also have It’s Alright pillowcases… guys this is just another way I am wing manning you! I got you! Oh wait and we have posters and tanks. All you have to do is log into the Scream Team and visit: -OR- just click STORE in the Scream Team section of the website.

I also want you all to know that Matt and I like to hear your thoughts on things. If you think we are blowing it by not making something merch wise or going to a certain part of the country or you just want to tell Matt how fucking cute he is, then feel free to holler at us! You can email the Scream Team, Facebook us, tweet at us, or post an Instagram photo with a message and tag us! I kind of think right now we look at Instagram the most. Some people have tagged us on some pretty sweet show shots! Thanks for that.

Alright I am going to go rest up right now. We have Milwaukee and Pittsburgh this weekend.

Big hugs kim

FINAL WEEK! The 12 Weeks of Summer Raging! Wed, 28 Aug 2013 15:59:05 +0000 I can’t believe it is WEEK 12. Is the summer seriously over? Fuck! Matt and I were talking just last night about how awesome our summer has been. Every weekend this summer we were at a festival. We got to go listen to music, play music, chill in fields, meet awesome new people, have competitions to see who could spot more hanging cheek, and party (sometimes a little too much!) I hope you were able to go to a few festivals this summer and check out bands you never heard of….ate food that sat heavy…. hooked up with someone you met waiting in line for the porta potty. I wonder if anyone got it on in a festival porta potty. Now that is someone who doesn’t give a fuck! I want to hang out with that person.

As for the past 11 weeks I hope you guys enjoyed these giveaways and the messages from me. I am happy we did it and hoping to do something like this again later in the year. Thank you for being part of our Scream Team and we will keep treating you guys to stuff. I will send out little messages to you every now and then via email. I would do it more often but I don’t want you to think I am spamming you with shit.
I will say I do like writing these notes cause I feel l can let you know what I am thinking and honestly I talk a hell of a lot more than 140 characters. I got shit to say! HA!! Seriously though I just wanted to thank you all for having our back and being so fucking good to us. I also want to holla at anyone who came out to a show this summer and partied with us. We fucking love playing music and you guys coming out and supporting us lets us keep doing what we love. So thank you thank you thank you so much!!

Now lets move on to what i pulled together for this final week. This week we have some good stuff.
Here we go:

~ Let’s Go T-shirt
~ A cd copy of Grand
~ A cd copy of Sidewalks (signed)
~ A cd copy of Lightning
~ A vinyl copy of our hand silkscreened S/T album (signed). We made a small run of these and you really can’t find them outside of our shows.
~ An “It’s Alright” poster …. yes the sex position one!
~ A Rusty “MATT AND KIM” Hoodie – These hoodies are crazy. You can plug your iPod into a cable in the pocket and it has speakers in the hood!
~ An old school picture of Matt taken by our friend Greg The Mayor. This is a shot from one of our old shows. Matt is hanging from a the rafters. He is topless and looks fucking hot! I actually have a copy of this same photo on my desk at home.
~ An It’s Alright pillowcase… Yes we made sex position pillowcases. Goal is to get all the positions done in a night. I don’t think it is humanely possible.
~ A Lightning tank top
~ and because it is going to be getting cold and you will want to be staying in a bit. I have purchased 3 awesome DVD’s for you. One is my favorite movie of all time. “Shaun of the Dead” Two is my favorite TV show “Arrested Development” (Season 1) and three, well it’s “Magic Mike” cause Channing Tatum looks fucking hot when he dances.

We will randomly select someone from all of the entries we have received over the past 11 weeks and announce the winner next Monday.

I hope you are happy with what I pulled together and out of the 18 shows we have left this year I better see your ass out at one of them.

Big hugs
