Block Party Matt & Kim Review Their Crowd
posted by July 27 at 19:49 PMon
Talking in the VIP tent after their early set…
Kim: “They were so amazing.”
Matt: “Seattle is so good to us. We went through so much shit. We lost our plane tickets home, we realized we didn’t have any speakers or amps, we broke the leg on one of the drums. But the thing is we started playing and everyone was so fucking positive. Although I got stoned and had some Pabst.”
Kim: “The crowd totally makes the show. When the beach ball came out I was psyched.”
They lost their plane tickets home? Huh? They explained: They were at another festival and they got vouchers to fly home on, but on the flight to Seattle they somehow lost those vouchers. They’re hoping that the vouchers are found and used by some people who really need them—a couple whose marriage is on the rocks, a family with a sick relative… But as of this moment, they still don’t know how they’re getting home.
They had some barbecue in the VIP tent and then, as the Blood Brothers started playing, went over to the VIP fence to watch.
