Matt and Kim at Culture Room October 14

Whether Brooklyn knew it or not, the New York borough became a happier place the instant Matt & Kim began creating Pixy Stix-fueled keyboard pop anthems a few years ago. Since then, the adorable pair has performed a load of high-energy shows that feature sweet banter and sweeter glances between the real-life couple. Both their self-titled debut and last year's Grand are loaded with mixtape-worthy anthems of youthful defiance and fill out any "happy music" enthusiast's collection. Can we work another adorable in there? Sure.

Fort Lauderdale's Culture Room will certainly be the giddiest place in South Florida when the duo swings by. Show up early to hear a preview of their new album, Sidewalks, and expect some fresher-than-fresh material to figure into the visit. Judging by their streaking in New York's Times Square, which was filmed for the "Lessons Learned" video, there's always a chance the club will also be the most naked place around.
