    Default Passion Pit :(

    Anyone else really disappointed by the lack of their presence?
    They're exactly what Coachella is all about... up and coming indie groups! Gah.

    At least they got Ariel Pink right... finally.

    I'm going to their show at the Hollywood Bowl with Hot Chip. I'll let you know how they were.

    Saw them a couple weeks ago in NYC and thought they were terrible. Third time seeing them and definitely the worst. Their stage presence has gotten a lot better but the sound was awful and I don't like their new songs. Seems like every performance is different though so who knows?

    Never got into them until this past few weeks, but I'm really loving the new album. Pretty much a shoe-in for 2013, no?

    They're hit or miss. I thought they were OK in '10 but then I saw them that fall open for Muse and they were awful.

    they were pretty fun at osl. The sound on that stage sucked so it's hard to get a real feel for them. His voice definitely doesn't sound as good as on record .

    I actually enjoyed their 2010 show quite a bit, but they were the first band that weekend that I was really pumped to see at my first Coachella. So that probably heightened the experience I guess.

    Really hit or miss, but the OSL show was a ton of fun like MostlyMellow said.

    Here's some video I shot at Osheaga. They're lots of fun from up front. 1:44 and 3:02 are my favorite parts.

    I saw them at the Bowl and overall I enjoyed the performance. I thought the band was totally on point and really really good, but the vocals were lacking a bit.

    Hot Chip was solid. Nothing spectacular, but a very solid show that turned into dance party pretty quickly.

    I was there to,o it was a fun show. I liked the mix of people in my section who were stoked for Passion Pit and then when Hot Chip came on they got confused and left. Loved Hot Chip.

    It was the exact opposite. Just about everyone sat through Passion Pit or didn't even bother to show up until after they were off stage. Then the first few notes of Hot Chip hit, they all erupted, and then suddenly I realized I was one of only like 5 straight people in the entire section.
    For your health

    Haha yea my fiance and I also noticed that there were a lot of gay guys there. I have no problem with this what so ever, but having to walk by them to go to the bathroom and hearing "hey cutie," 3-4 times was pretty funny.
