Matt & Kim (and This is My Suitcase) @ the Sco 10-5-07

Somehow Oberlin’s various booking people (Becky, Concert Board, etc.) seem to have decided to jam-pack as many good bands as they could manage into one week, which happens to be the same week as Safer Sex Night.

As for Matt & Kim’s show on Friday, I’m not going to talk about the first opening band, because I’d just end up being mean. So I’ll start the story a little later: I ran into the ‘Sco with two friends for This is My Suitcase, who I’d never heard before. They put on a pretty energetic set, and reminded me a bit of the Format. I’m not sure the two EPs they have available for free download (here and here) do their live sound justice, which is unfortunate. One of my friends bought their album, and I’m looking forward to stealing it from him sometime soon. This is My Suitcase hails from Columbus, OH, so they're like neighbors.

No, the photo isn't from the Oberlin show, but they invited the crowd on stage for the last song, and it looked a lot like this.

Matt & Kim rocked a lot more live than I'd expected them to. Around the time they played "Yea Yeah," I joined in the dancing, and the 'Sco was wild. There was simply so much wild energy in that room that it was easy to be consumed by it. The two also had great chemistry in their playing, and Matt seemed to enjoy telling embarrassing stories about Kim. It was pretty cute, actually.

I'm glad Matthew (of Song, By Toad) wrote about Cease to Begin so I don't have to.

    Mwah-ha! All too happy to oblige. It's a good album though, so need to hold off.
