According to his bio, Matt is an Athens, GA based one man band that plays bass guitar (with his left foot!), a full drum set, a guitar, a keyboard, and sings all at the same time. Check him out this Thursday at the Smiling Moose as he shares a bill with Chotto Ghetto from L.A. In between gigs, Matt was cool enough to participate in this Monday edition of a week-long First/Last.
