On Tuesday night, Boston’s Passion Pit played their biggest New York show to date, a sold out benefit before an enthusiastic crowd at the bandshell at Prospect Park. The next Celebrate Brooklyn! event is a free show featuring The Fab 5 and Uzalu on Friday, July 2. Here’s a little technical assessment of the show from Citizen Journalist Zara Golden:

With only an EP (Chunk of Change), one full length (Manners) and a handful of remixes and covers (notably, and recently, of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” and a cover of Smashing Pumpkins’ “Tonight, Tonight”), Passion Pit easily made it through most of their discography. They opened with a bleepy and almost sleepy-dance hit, “I’ve Got Your Number,” giving the crowd a chance to adjust their ears to the effervescence of Passion Pit’s syths and snares and their eyes to the bright, rainbow lights that backed them.

Their biggest, and also most dance-floor-ready hit, “Little Secrets,” rounded out the long set, but few filtered out as the rainbow bright-lights shut off. They returned to stage for three more songs, including their popular cover of “Dreams” by The Cranberries and their break out hit, “Sleepyhead.” [Huffington Post]
