Matt & Kim at the Piazza at Schmidt’s

Matt & Kim are a dance punk duo residing in Brooklyn, New York formed in 2004 by Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino. They have a do-it-yourself attitude toward their music with simple dance-style rhythms and energetic performances which have gained them a substantial local following, and an online presence through social networking and media sites.

The Griffin Complex at Gwynedd Mercy University is home to the Men’s and Women’s Basketball and Volleyball teams. The Complex hosted exciting competitions and distinguished graduations, but the attendees had a hard time hearing what was happening.
Intimate, natural-sounding dialogue in a sold-out theater. Crisp, intelligible announcements in a packed stadium. Exhilarating lights and music at an outdoor summer festival. A stirring sermon reaching every corner of a cavernous church.
Sounds like the work of Clear Sound - the Delaware Valley's best full-service audio, video and lighting company.
