    Your excitement for them will overshadow the actual performance, his falsetto voice translates terribly live.

    I think the problems are with the sound mix live.

    Saw em at Bimbos in may and they sounded full and great (after an initial hitch warming up)

    but then at Lolla and Treasure Island it sounded thin and weak from them giving his voice way too much room in the mix.

    Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.

    I actually left Saturday Treasure Island after Passion Pit into Dan Deacon and now those are the only two acts that stick in my mind. It was nothing mind-blowing but not bad.

    I had fun with their show but I hated the fact that he sings over the backing tracks.

    I saw them in 2008 opening up for Yelle. I had no idea who they were and they were so much fun that they got me, as well as everyone else, onto the floor and dancing. I haven't seen them live since then though. All I know is that during that set, I said to my fiancee "I bet you anything these guys will be at Coachella next year!" Well, it looks like Coachella are a year late to the party.

    I don't particularly want them there, but they probably will be with all of the hype that they're getting. Put them in the Mojave in the afternoon.

    I don't want them there cause it would be Bonnaroo's sloppy seconds. Cause that matters.


    Also, they suck.

    It would be best to just cash out on this alias. It's just not working, well.

    Brandon wants to mack on 14 year old girls.

    Also, I like Passion Pit. They're fun and I'd see them if they played (barring something better playing) with no guilt.

    Yep, it almost makes me long for the plethora of director aliases we had a few weeks ago.

    The hype for them was overblown, but they're decent live.

    HAHA. Yeah they will be there and if there's absolutly no other good bands playing when they perform I might check them out. I only really liked one song off the first album. They just sound like weak Portugal. the Man to me.
