MAJOR LAZER and MATT & KIM

BRING THE HEAT!
Thursday Night 6/18/09
SCENE: House of Blues Boston


On Thursday night Boston is invited to Bacardi's party at the House of Blues. They call it "BACARDI B-LIVE." We call it the traveling roadshow [full line-up/twitter] with two of the hottest acts in the country right now!

MAJOR LAZER

Major Lazer - Hold The Line Video

This is one hot beat and one unlikely post-apocalyptic hero. You won't find us hyping too much in this musical category, but this is as wildly entertaining as it is catchy... About the Major Lazer recordings: Hyper-DJ’s Diplo & Switch headed off to Jamaica to explore their Dancehall roots and came back with some relentless grooves. The planted the story of a laser armed super soldier named Major Lazer into the midst of the tunes. What you get is Saturday Morning cartoons from 1982 - but featuring some pretty weird action. In the video, watch the Major Hold The Line against fierce vampire zombies in this animated romp of a video. Don't forget to listen to the hooks:

MATT and KIM

Already widely celebrated by many fans on the outskirts of town - Matt & Kim have made some very good moves over the last year - we are referring both to their impressive touring regime (lots of smiling, impressed faces) and to their stellar new album: 2009's Grand (RSL review: "The First Must-Have Album of the Year" Jan. 2009). It's hard not to love this one! Matt & Kim sold a song to Bacardi (you know the new Bacardi tv spot with the really catchy piano piece, right?) and now this tour. This duo is a winning combination!
