Also performing were DJ gooddroid, rapper S’natra, indie rockers Small Black and soul band Phony Ppl, but clearly the main draw was Brooklyn’s favorite indie duo. Before their set, the crowd mostly mingled in Avant Gardner’s cavernous Great Hall, where sample cans of Blue Point’s new core beer, The IPA, were paired with food from Eddie’s Pizza, Takumi Tacos and Twin Greeks.
By the time of the main attraction, day-drinking energy abounded, and Matt and Kim fed that energy right back to the crowd as they tore through a non-stop set that included their big hits “Daylight” and “Good Ol’ Fashion Nightmare” in addition to “Like I Used To Be” from their latest album Almost Everyday, plus a cover of Van Halen’s “Jump.” Throughout the show confetti rained down on the sweaty audience; when the fans started to crowd-surf, they were joined by sea of blow-up dolls.
