05.20.09 | Tiger Beat, Matt & Kim, DJ AM | Neumos

Bacardi brought the party with their B-Live tour featuring Matt & Kim and DJ AM. Upon entering, we received Bacardi tokens that we could redeem for free stuff. I got posters, earrings, and hit up the photo booth. After standing in line for like 30 minutes, we were told that they were out of t-shirts (which they were screenprinting on the spot)!

Getting the party started was Seattle by way of Baltimore DJ, Tiger Beat. He was amazing! And really hot! He consistently mixed good, danceable material that combined classics like Michael Jackson and Journey with recent songs from Lil' Wayne, Enur, and others. I will definitely check him out again.

Next up was Brooklyn's Matt & Kim. The last time I saw them was two years ago I believe, when they were opening for the French Kicks. This time around, it is clear that Matt & Kim have really come into their own. They exude much more confidence on stage and their energy of course is unbelievable. Though their set was short, they kept the crowd going with their rambunctious tunes.

Following was Drop the Lime, a DJ who seemed out of place because he played mostly techno, frenetic beats. I opted to go oogle Tiger Beat at the bar next door where he was holding it down.

Finally DJ AM came to the stage. I admit, part of the reason I wanted to see him is because he is kinda famous, having dated Nicole Ritchie and Mandy Moore, and was recently in the news for surviving a plane crash. He was good, but no better than Tiger Beat. Okay, maybe I'm just in love with Tiger Beat...
It was a super fun night - and free free free! (Mostly.) Hey Bacardi - next time offer free drinks!

So it's late and I'm bored and thus looking at your old blog entries. So, my officially cool cousin Britt is also friends with Tiger Beat. In fact, when I clicked on the link you attached to his name, which is his myspace page, his main picture includes my cousin feeding him alcohol. So there you go.

Congrats bro Whitney you got PERTAMAX...! hehehehe...
