It was a perfectly sunny afternoon as fun. performed to an energetic, over flowing crowd at the outdoor Radio 104.5 Winter Jam Festival in Philadelphia. Most folks were on their tippy toes to catch a glimpse of the indie pop trio as Front man Nate Ruess exclaimed, "This might be the biggest crowd that we have ever played in front of." They performed songs such as "Carry On" from their forthcoming album Some Nights which is due out 2/21.

In making "Some Nights," their second record, fun. teamed up with heavy hitting producer Jeff Bhasker, who has worked with big names such as Kanye, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Beyonce and Drake. "Some Nights" has inherited a bit of a hip-hop influence to the already catchy melodies.

Their performance wouldn't have been complete without their breakout single, "We Are Young," which features Janelle Monae. Although Janelle Monae was not there to sing her part, the crowd had no problem taking over with the lyrics, turning the popular song into a group sing along. Fun. wrapped up their performance with the laid back tune "Take Your Time," off their debut album Aim and Ignite.
