"Don't Draw Penises on my Banner!" - Matt from Matt & Kim

So, for the second time this week, I attended a free show from the amazing Brooklyn duo known as Matt & Kim, and let me tell you, it was much better than the first time.  This time, they played with The Cool Kids, and Flosstrradamus.

The Cool Kids were - to say the least - pretty fucking cool.  They bring a new hip hop sound similar to that of Kid Cudi, or maybe Lupe.  The dudes brought out a cool and diverse crowd, and it seemed as though everyone but me knew their lyrics.
After the Cool Kids played their set, it was time for Matt & Kim.  The crowd this time around was pretty much there just to see them, so their real fans showed their appreciation by moshing and crowd surfing - I took my turn at crowd surfing, and got dropped like in a bad teen movie.  But if you've never seen these two perform live, you're missing out big time.  Also, expect to get hit in the face, have a drink spilled on you, get moshed, etc.

Unfortunately, I was dancing way too hard to get any shots of Flosstradamus, but here's an idea of what they look like:

And check out who else was there checking out the show:

1/2 of Justice - Gaspard Augé
Gaspard was kind enough to kick it with me for a minute.  We enjoyed some good conversation, a cigarette or two, and exchanged information.  So look out for a word from the legendary DJ/Producer, and also keep an eye out for their upcoming DVD, comprised of live footage.

Your ears are gonna love a dose of this:
