The Brooklyn duo have performed night after night of sold-out shows and incited riots in the hearts of their fans and critics alike, bringing the mayhem to every stop on the LIGHTNING TOUR. The Twitter world is a nightly explosion of excited tweets and rave reviews. It really is rare that you would find more people having fun at a live show than Matt, Kim, and their crowds.
