Passion Pit @ Central Park Summerstage (gohingplaces)
Passion Pit

"This whole summer - the past three months - have been all festivals," said Passion Pit bassist Jeff Apruzzese. "So I feel like I'm finally getting used to it and now it's over."

So, was this exhausting, rainy weekend worth it?

It was for Passion Pit who said they would "love" to play at ACL again.

"Definitely [we would come back]," said keyboard player and guitarist for Passion Pit Ian Hultquist. "Hopefully when we come back it will be more relaxed and not super intense like it was today." [the battalion]

Passion Pit played the rainy Austin City Limits festival over the weekend. Not long before that, they opened two nights in a row for Phoenix at Central Park Summerstage. They're still a relatively new band, but they've also played multiple nights at Pianos, Glasslands, a Rocks Off Boat, Bowery Ballroom more than once (more than twice even), Music Hall of Williamsburg, and technically even Webster Hall. Next up: a headlining show at Terminal 5 on January 8th. Tickets go on AmEX presale Wednesday at noon, and then general sale Friday at the same time.

Opening the T5 show is a Canadian band who also got their NYC start at Pianos, and who is headlining their own show at Bowery Ballroom this Wednesday night (Oct 7). I'm talking about The Rural Alberta Advantage. Tickets are still on sale. Kittens Ablaze and The Lovely Feathers are the openers.
