MATT AND KIM kick off their GRAND 10 Year Celebration Tour right here in Cleveland on Thursday, October 17 at the recently remodeled Agora! (Catch a great show and check out the venue’s upgrades, too!)The duo, known for infectious, beat-driven anthems and explosive live shows will be playing their breakout album, ‘GRAND’ in full! including hits “Daylight” and “Lessons Learned”, brand new single “GO GO” (vivdeo up top!) and more.
What was said of the band back then – “Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino have established a hard-won reputation as a raucous live juggernaut” (NPR) – holds true today as the tour-loving Brooklyn two-piece continue to incite non-stop dance parties at every venue they play. And, that’s just how they intend to celebrate on stages across the U.S. this Fall.
Matt and Kim self-recorded their breakout sophomore album ‘GRAND‘ in Matt’s childhood home in rural Vermont. Upon its release in 2009, it was hailed as “exhilarating” (Rolling Stone) “obscenely catchy” (Entertainment Weekly) and “self-production at its best – energetic, inventive and mildly destructive” (NME).
The record features the singles “Lessons Learned,” which earned the band an MTV Video Music Award for Breakthrough Video, and fan-favorite “Good Ol’ Fashion Nightmare”.
Of the album and tour, Matt says, “In celebration of its 10 year anniversary, we’re going on a U.S. tour playing our album GRAND in its entirety (as well as a bunch of other songs)! This album totally changed me and Kim’s lives, but some of the songs off GRAND we’ve never even played live before. We’re really excited we get to do this trip and we’ve never done anything like it. It’s gonna be special.”
Language is definitely not suitable for all ages because of Kim.
All tickets are for general admission and priced at $29.50 in advance.
