Brooklyn happy-rock power-couple Matt and Kim have lately been all about bad-ass gestures: streaking through Times Square, pretending to fall off the Williamsburg Bridge for press photos, engaging in onstage banter about vaginas. But at heart, they’re still two immensely likable punk-rock kids in love with each other and life and, most especially, you. And every one of their phenomenal live shows is a crowd-surfing, stage-diving, party-faced reminder of this—and if you think you have a better, cheaper way to spend this Thursday night, you are a yellow-bellied fool.
