Indie Duo Matt and Kim to Play at 2014 Homecoming Concert

The Student Programming Association announced today that Brooklyn-based duo Matt and Kim will take the stage 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 21 in front of the HUB for the Homecoming 2014 Concert. The indie group is best-known for its songs “Daylight” and “Let’s Go,” which have been featured on commercials and hit shows such as “Gossip Girl” and “Community.”

Since its formation in 2004, the group signed with Fadar Label. Its music video for the song “Lessons Learned,” off its second album Grand, went viral and earned the duo an MTV Music Video Music Award for Best Breakthrough Artist in 2009. They have since toured with popular bands such as Blink-182 and My Chemical Romance. They released their latest album, Lightning, in 2012, and it climbed up to No. 50 on the Billboard 200. They released a second edition of the album in 2013 entitled Lightning Remixes. 

Matt and Kim will start their concert after a dance competition at 6 p.m., both of which are free to all students.
