Silence. Snap, the shutter clicks, and Matt and Kim erupt into laughter. Now that's a candid. Backstage at the Gibson Amphitheatre the Brooklyn-based indie pop duo sit with friends following their performance at L.A. Weekly's inaugural LA 101 music event, when suddenly Matt mentions that earlier he discovered the original Back to the Future DeLorean time machine parked in the Universal back lot behind the venue. The best part? It's unlocked. Chairs are pushed aside and drinks left unattended as the group scurries outside past security and into the lot where Doc Brown's most famous invention sits like a crown jewel, crammed in between thrashed stunt cars, just begging to be played in. Before the night's end, even the Silversun Pickups would take turns behind the wheel.
