But this kind of party I was not ready for. Jamming to some of their music the whole trip, mentally preparing myself for what was to come, I put myself in a fist-pumping frenzy, all the way to the front door. Opening the show up was rapper Michael Christmas. The DJ got the crowd feeling good before we were introduced to Mr. Christmas by playing a few warm-up songs. Michael ran out on to the stage with so much energy.
After killing his first song he addressed the crowd. To close his show, Michael Christmas addressed that he wanted to end his show doing a song for anyone who had lost a loved one, or a close friend.Matt & Kim - The Shure Interview

Michael Christmas is an artist to keep eyes on for sure. It was definitely a damn dance party. They opened the show with a bang.
Lights were flashing out of control, however, they beat in unison with the music. Shit I am only called Kimberly if i am in a ton of trouble.
Have a question for Matt and Kim?
So afterwards we changed it to Matt and Kim. At the time Matt was working on film jobs and I was nannying and making art at night. Do you guys ever get sick of each other?
We just keep hanging out. In the past three years since your last album release, how do you think your sound has changed? We decided we were only going to make songs, and release them one at a time. Really focus on it and try to make it great.
Cause we touch on anything that can makes your ass shake! We had made a 10 second loop which is the main drum and sampler part of the song. As always we want it to be something that is fun to listen to.

We got pulled over. The cop asked if he could search our van and I said sure. I guess this goes for everyday life. So I knew I had nothing to worry about and if the cop searched the van he was only going to find a bunch of pee bottles.
