Passion Pit on a NYC boat (Rocks Off concert cruise) – pics

Passion Pit

Passion Pit‘s last-minute, one-off NYC show on a boat was the fastest selling Rocks Off Concert Cruise in history (according to one of the promoters I talked to). It sold out in less than two days. Bad Brains took five. The show (last night) was timed to coincide with the release of the band’s new album, Manners, out today (5/19) via Frenchkiss. As anyone who likes the band can probably imagine, the boat show was a super good time.

As the cruise, which departs from 41st on the west side, sailed up and down the Hudson River, there was lots of dancing, high-pitched singing, and birthday cake (Happy Birthday Michael). I think MTV was there filming too. More rehearsed than they were at SXSW in March (which is where I last caught them), the band seemed more confident playing the new songs. The audience, not surprisingly, went most nuts for the “old” (EP) stuff (like the song “Sleepyhead”, which they actually also put on the new full length). More pictures from the show below…
