Passion Pit @ BrooklynVegan CMJ showcase 2008 (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Passion Pit

Passion Pit, who just played Saturday Night Live, just announced they'll headline Madison Square Garden on February 8 with openers Matt & Kim. Tickets go on sale Friday (10/19) at noon. Pretty amazing they were playing Pianos just four years ago. Updated Passion Pit dates are listed below.

Meanwhile, some of you may have noticed Ayad Al Adhamy is no longer in Passion Pit, deciding instead to focus soley on his group Team Spirit. The band have signed to Vice & Warner Brothers and NYC will have a bunch of chances to see them this week during CMJ, including the Banners showcase at Pianos tonight (10/16); the NYC Taper day party at Pianos on Wednesday (10/17); the Noisey CMJ showcase at Santos later Wednesday night; and the Fuzz showcase at the Swat Bar on Saturday (10/19). They've also got a few dates with White Denim and Maps and Atlases and their full tour schedule is listed below, along with a stream of their EP from earlier in the year.
