Kids Like You and Me aka KLYAM (pronounced clam), established on June 27, 2009, spread the good word about lesser-known international, national, and local music mostly by way of this blog and putting on shows/fests in the Boston area, including our annual Rama Lama Ding Dong festival (featuring some of our favorite local groups) and Mouth Is A Mouth Noise Fests (basement shows spotlighting a broad interpretation of ‘noise’). We’ve also released a few records, multiple tapes, and a book – see below!
If you’d like to send us your music, potentially be a part of one of our events, or talk about whatever, you can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, visit us on FB, Instagram @theklyam.

“Read Kids Like You and Me! You will discover a straight up and purely awesome resource for sick bands and catchy jams both new and old with a gangsta lean to the kind of raw, nasty, garagey, punk, and weirdo side of rock and roll that our pages were founded on. These dudes truly know what is up with underground rock and roll today and they are generously dishing it out on a daily basis. KLYAM will turn you on in more ways than one, mostly with new releases, tour dates, videos, show listings and other nasty sassafras. For punk slime all the time visit http://www.klyam.com. Don’t forget to bookmark that shit, scratch it into your desk if need be. The Kids are there for you.” – Boston Compass
