    At Carnegie Mellon University’s Carnival Concert three years ago, indie-pop duo Matt and Kim took the stage. Many students at the time were full-fledged fans, pushing their way closer for the best view while others who weren’t as familiar with the band waited at the fringes, curious about the band who they knew from hits like “Daylight” and “Good Ol’ Fashion Nightmare.” What ensued was a typical M...
