The innovative electro/pop band from Cambridge, Mass, Passion Pit will be lighting up the stage at the Wellmont Theater on Thursday (sold out) and Friday of this week, 12/30- 31. Baristanet has a pair of tickets for the New Year’s Eve concert and after show party. Read to the end for a chance to win.
Best known for their singles, Little Secret and Sleepyhead as well as their remixes of popular songs like Telephone by Lady Gaga, Passion Pit combines techno beats with live vocals to create a unique sound.
Since its inception in 2007, the band has produced two albums, Chunk of Change and Manners and toured with French pop sensation Yelle. According to The Baltimore Sun, Passion Pit’s “grooves were tight and funky and singer Michael Angelakos’ sailing falsetto was strong enough to tickle the club’s rafters.”
A favorite amongst Baristaville’s younger set, last year the band’s sold out New York concerts attracted crowds of Montclair High School students, who sang and danced their way through the Port Authority bus terminal after the show — the intense beats still lingering in their heads. The buzz continued the next week around school and town, and Passion Pit has since taken its place on the top of the must-see concert list.
The 12/31 show includes admission to an after-show party (included in the price of the ticket), including a Passion Pit DJ set, and a champagne toast.
