Passion Pit @ Sasquatch 09 (more by Chris Graham)
Passion Pit

American-Statesman: You've been selling out shows across the country. Why do you think people are so excited to see you?
Adhamy: People tell them to be excited. We have a really awesome publicist. It's a word of mouth or word of Internet thing. It's nothing we're doing.
Donmoyer: ... It's our first tour through a lot of these towns so it's still a litmus test, an 'are these guys worth our time?' kind of thing. It'll be a few more tours before they're actually here to see us.
Adhamy: We met these two girls yesterday in Dallas that said they were doing a Passion Pit Texas tour, coming to all three shows (Dallas, Austin and Houston). I'm really humbled by that.
Donmoyer: They don't have jobs, so they can follow us around.
PhoenixPhoenix and Passion Pit have announced one of at least two shows they're playing together in September, and that is Friday, September 25th at Rumsey Playfield aka Central Park Summerstage. Tickets for the NYC show are on AmEx presale NOW, and go on regular sale Friday at noon. The other show the bands share on their schedule is the Monolith Festival happening earlier that month (September 12-13) at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO.

This is the third upcoming NYC show for both bands. Phoenix play Music Hall of Williamsburg and Terminal 5 this month. Passion Pit, who recently played a boat, has two shows at Bowery Ballroom. All four of those upcoming shows are sold out. All currently known dates below...

^Obviously you are retarded since they just released their debut. As far as Sleepyhead goes, I can listen to that song everyday. It makes me feel good.
