As I write this I am one hour from home! This weekend we went to Gainesville, FL and Louisville, KY. I was ready to kill it in Gainesville. We haven’t played there in awhile so I was happy to finally make it back but Mother Nature was being a bitch and had different plans for us. I was in the bus finishing up my booty dance warm up when Tom our tour manager came in and said we had to postpone for 20 minutes because there was lightning and every time lightning popped off we would have to postpone for another 20 minutes. So due to the lightning (yes it’s a slap in the face since our album is called LIGHTNING) the school had to cancel the show because the lightning didn’t want to stop. I hope we can schedule another show there and this time we should have the school do it inside.
Saturday we were in Louisville and I thought we were going to be in the same situation cause as we were heading to the festival from the hotel they called our driver and told him to bring us back to the hotel because they were evacuating the festival due to severe weather coming in. Then a hour later all was good and we could come back to the site. The show went on and not only did it go on it fucking popped off! Forecastle was ready to party! There were even glowing fish on stage. That has never happened at a show before.
So now we are in the bus almost back to brooklyn where we have a week off. First weekend off in two months. My plans are to eat some mother fucking brunch and then sit my ass in a park. It’s gonna be sweet!
So, last week we were giving away a care package for whomever took a photo of themselves partying hard! I figured after going hard a nice care package could start this week off right for them. Well Jon B. definitely won! I can’t post the photo because it is that crazy and scandalous! I am still trying to figure out how you were able to shoot a photo in a strip club! I thought that was a definite NO! I have realized that this weeks winner has set the bar high and I need to step my partying game up. Thank you for opening my eyes. I do like making people care packages so at some point before the summer is over I am going to do this again.
We are now at WEEK 6. I know what you might be thinking “fuck summer is half over” but don’t look at it like that you should think I have 6 more weeks to enjoy the sun and parties!! At the beginning of summer we started bringing “It’s Alright” tshirts and soon will have posters (http://www.vevo.com/watch/matt-and-kim/its-alright/US4HB1390001) to the festivals and that is the ONLY spot you can get them at. Well I understand not everyone can make it to the festivals so I want to make sure our Scream Team can get their hands on them. We’re going to give away 10 ‘It’s Alright’ posters (these aren’t even available to the public yet) so there will be TEN winners this week. We’re also going to make these available to Scream Team members directly for purchase (if you didn’t happen to win). To win you just need to do is make sure you are logged into the scream team and enter here!. If you find out you didn’t win and want one of these simply email us (scream team (at) mattandkimmusic.com) and we’ll get you the all of the details as to how to get one of these posters.
Hope all is awesome!
