Borough Report: Matt & Kim Head Overseas

Walking to the J/M/Z this morning, I passed the Kim half of dance-noise-punk duo Matt & Kim. She was in a fake-fur-lined hooded coat, cute and cheery-looking, and I was decaffeinated and morose. I reflexively smiled. She didn't smile back. You know why? We've never met. It took me, like, a whole five seconds to realize what had just happened: after seeing Matt & Kim live, taking photos of them at SXSW, and posting them on the Internet, my Web-blogged brain was scarily and temporarily confused into thinking we're acquaintances. I'm moderately disturbed by my misfiring synapses and could probably spend 1000-words theorizing about how digital media fosters perceived familiarity (the abridged version: I should just mainline Red Bull every morning in the shower), but instead I'd just like to take this opportunity to explain that, Kim, the funny-hatted girl who grinned at you this morning on Roebling Street wasn't a stalker, just a blogger. Yeah, yeah, what's the difference.

SOTC isn't about to become Missed Connections or anything, so the alleged point of this is to tell you that Matt & Kim are heading overseas next week for the first time ever. And once they get back to the states, the Seattle show for one looks golden: Matt & Kim, Bonde do Role, and CSS at Neumo's. No New York dates on the list, but when they're in town, you can catch Kim on Monday mornings near the Williamsburg Bridge. Overseas dates and longer-term ones in the states after the jump.
