Matt & Kim, Professor Murder

Just wanted to mention here officially how completely insane the Matt & Kim / Professor Murder show was at Bowery Ballroom last Friday. I had such such such a great time. Super happy fun times. It was one of the most raw shows that I have been to in a long, long time. Reminded me of some of the shows of my youth, getting kicked in the head by crowd surfers, watching people jump off of speaker stacks, and thrashing about like a mental patient. It was one of those shows that are so wild that you walk out with a ripped up hoodie and a destroyed pair of sneakers, drenched in sweat. But maybe the best thing about the show was seeing how much fun the bands were having. Matt & Kim both had huge smiles on their faces and were giggling with joy their entire set. And Professor Murder were total professionals, while enjoying themselves, and played a very impressive set. That band is on the verge of going big, which will probably happen around the time they take the stage at the Pitchfork Festival this summer. Reviews of this show can be found at Pop Tarts, The Music Slut, and Productshop (which is where I stole the above pic from).

Make seeing Professor Murder at Canal Room on Sat March 31 a priority. Trust me. $10 at the door. $8 if you RSVP to

I also highly recommend attending both of these Todd P shows:

You know Chris most times I would agree with making Professor Murder a must see, but not at Canal Room. Their drinks are just way too expensive to really cut loose and enjoy the show.
