Matt and Kim Fondly Remember Concerts at Pre-Air Conditioning Trunk Space

It's hard to have a song in a Verizon commercial but still come off to the public as down-to-earth, but Brooklyn-based indie-pop duo Matt and Kim finds a way.

Naturally, part of it is carefully crafted public image, forged at the cost of thousands of dollars and hours of meetings with PR specialists, but a bigger part of it is that Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino are actually that real.

Not only do the duo form one of the most electrifying live acts in the world, they also are, when it comes to fan interaction, possibly the most engaging musical performers on the road today.
