    In terms of musical venues, there are few places more iconic than the most famous park in the world. The Supremes, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Simon and Garfunkel, Bon Jovi; New York City's Central Park has played host to a variety of legendary concerts, creating monstrous cultural events that are now a rich part of the city's historical fabric.

    Though musical events of this scale (tens of thousands of people) are understandably few and far between, the everyday legacy of the park's musical heritage lives on in the carefully curated programs that take over Rumsey Playfield during the warmer months of the year. SummerStage; an absolute NYC institution...a place where performers and audiences alike revel in a unique, shared concert experience. So when Passion Pit asked us to film their second night of a weekend run on SummerStage last Fall, well...we were smitten by the opportunity.

    We of course have been yapping about the show ever since. But today marks our first opportunity to actually show it to you. The glitzy synthetic waves of sound, the addicting bubblegum beats setting thousands of heads in movement, those ever-present window-shattering falsettos; it's our great joy to present you with the first half of Passion Pit's mighty performance in Central Park. Since that time, the band has only gained momentum, acquiring a variety of award show nominations (mtvU, Q, etc), helping sell a boatload of Palm products, selling out 3 nights in a row at NYC's cavernous, Terminal 5, and of course touring...none stop touring. But the band's two night run on Central Park marked the beginning of the BIG things to come, in a way...and Baeble's exclusive concert video of the band pretty much sums up why. - David Pitz

    We hope you enjoy Part 1 of Passion Pit - Live at Central Park. Stay tuned for Part 2 to air next week on Baeble.
