ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME. they are the WORST LIVE BAND EVER.

Posted by d | October 27, 2009 6:49 PM

i love that this band brings out the haters.

its a pretty great fucking record, no matter how much i WANT to hate it.

i got no beef with passion pit.

The album is freaking great, but people who like the album a lot will be surprised by how weak they sound live

Posted by Anonymous | October 27, 2009 10:21 PM

Three nights at T5? Seriously?

Posted by dee | October 27, 2009 10:48 PM

they SUCKED live before.


HOWEVER
in the past month they have gotten to be really quite good.
like surprisingly good.

people who saw them earlier need to give them another chance. seriously. the entire show has changed.

i mean, the bands been around for like a year and a half and write songs in a studio, not in a rehearsal space. shits a totally different kind of show.

but they definitely sucked before. think they're beginning to live up to their potential now. i've seen them a few times.

Passion pit MORE LIKE HIPSTER SHIT am I right?

Posted by Justin Leon | October 28, 2009 3:35 AM

I saw them last month for the 2nd time...Their live show is still weak. I mean real weak. The songs don't have the same umph as they do on the record.

Posted by Anonymous | October 28, 2009 10:56 AM

i bet it will have oomph after they spend all that 3 sell out night cash on coke

They are more successful than all of y'all haters.

I'm sure Passion Pit may have been shitty live earlier in their career, but I saw them play at Treasure Island two weekends ago, and they were phenomenal... easily the best act of the first day. The lead singer's voice was not perfect in a live setting, but the other musicians are just too talented--they completely blew me away.

don't care what band you are, it's hard to sing early at festivals. they played early. i saw them. always is especially for singers who sing high.
