Saturday nights Passion Pit show at the UIC Pavilion proved to be worth it’s hype, and the audience was ready for everything the night had in store.
Openers Icona Pop came out with their deep bass “Manners” and ended with their hit “I Love It”, in between were small attempts to get the audience up from their seats but instead delivered an uptempo soundtrack for everyone’s conversations.
Matt & Kim followed and made it their own show. From mini hip-hop breaks, standing on drum sets, and references of their sex life, this show could have been carried away by the married duo.
The nights crowd was a mix of 20-something’s who may have made it out to see Passion Pit’s return to the stage at last years Lollapalooza, some were ready to see the band for the first time.
With only two albums to their discography, Passion Pitts may be this generations Coldplay. With laser lights, bouncing light balls, and deep enough lyrics to make you understand lead singers, Michael Angelakos, bi-polar disorder.
With songs like “Take A Walk”, “Carried Away”, and “Sleepy Head” and with power house remixes, Passion Pit has great potential to be a mainstay in the electro-pop music world. Other bands in the genre could take note that turning ones personal problems doesn’t always have to sound tragic, sometimes all it takes is a party.
