When I found out Karmin was opening up the Steve Madden Summer Music Series with Spin Mag, I was more than happy to stop by and check these guys out. Click below for some SHOTS:

What: Steve Madden Summer Music Series, sponsored by Spin Mag, Epic Records and Tito’s Handmade Vodka, featuring Karmin

Where: NYC

Venue: L.E.S. Steve Madden Store

When: May 9th, 2012

Who: Karmin, DJ Kalkutta, Allison Hagendorf

Notes: Ever since seeing their early YouTube videos – which is how they rose to fame – I have loved what these guys do, musically. Comprised of Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan, this duo, along with their guitar player, pump out pop hits galore and mix that with a bit of hip hop flavor.

I’ve been wanting to see them perform live for a while now, so I’m happy I had the chance to catch up with them at this great event made possible by Steve Madden, Spin Mag, Epic Records and Tito’s Vodka. Aside from their great performance, I give them credit for being extremely cordial with the audience/fans – not everyone I’ve met have been as gracious as them. Check out Karmin’s music here.
