“Wow, thank you guys so much.” Passion Pit singer Michael Angelakos thanked the crowd several times during their show at Compuware Arena in Plymouth on Thursday.
And rightfully so; the large crowd was almost a bit too rowdy, with lots of pushing and crowd surfing going on.
Passion Pit’s live show is a spectacle; this time around they had large white spheres hanging from the ceiling that changed color and moved vertically, which made for a really neat effect and supplemented their already-fantastic performance.
Angelakos utilized all stage space available to him; he often paced back and forth and then stopped to let the audience sing for a few seconds and always got an overwhelming response.
There were also lasers and a few bubble machines on either side of the stage; the bubbles floated around the venue looking like glitter, reflecting and dispersing the light. www.passionpitmusic.com
Although Passion Pit headlined, both other bands performed as if they were the last to play.
Matt & Kim are two of the most excited performers I’ve ever seen. Kim had more energy than most people after a red bull; and she kept it up throughout her entire time on stage, even with a hurt ankle. She spent a lot of time standing up on her kick drum and her facial expressions were priceless. www.mattandkimmusic.com
Either there were lots of people there to see them, or Swedish duo Icona Pop is just really good at getting the crowd going. Both Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo stepped up to sing to the crowd a few times at which point the crowd went wild, stretching their arms out striving to touch their hands. www.iconapop.com
2012 was a big year for all three bands, and they are going nowhere but up. Keep in touch with them on facebook!
