There are a few magical venues in New York, but Central Park SummerStage might be one of the best. Its large outdoor space offers fans a unique concert experience unlike any other and every band that hits the stage adds to the city's rich history. Passion Pit
is one of those bands, and they put on one hell of a show. I personally caught one of their sets at Pier 26 in 2013 before the venue unfortunately shut down; the setting sun acted as a backdrop while Michael Angelakos flung around stage and it was magical. That said, when he tore up Central Park's stage, it was equally as magical. Maybe it's something about the fresh air that makes Passion Pit's music feel like the best thing ever, but with bubbly synths, blaring bass, and Angelakos' glass-breaking falsetto, this Central Park show was a euphoric experience that has gone down as history in our books.
Angelakos has been making the headlines a lot lately: he recently livestreamed his electromagnetic brain treatment on Facebook (and has been openly fighting mental illness for years now), has launched an artist support services company, and released a Christmas album last year as well as a bunch of new tracks.
