Passion Pit at 1STBANK Center with Matt & Kim, 3/1/13 (review, photos and setlist)


Passion Pit's show at 1STBANK Center was more about feel than flash, more about mood than pageantry. The globes started to glow pink right before Passion Pit broke into the slow tempo of "Constant Conversations" and singer Michael Angelakos busted out some fine falsetto crooning. The cloth spheres of different sizes were all over the stage, behind the band and moving up and down throughout the act's fifteen-song set. A few of the largest were at the front of the stage, changing colors for different tunes and different musical moods. It was a straightforward touch of stagecraft, and that earnest feel fit the larger theme of Passion Pit's show.
