Photos: Passion Pit at the Fox Theater

Passion Pit (photo: Robert Alleyne) Passion Pit delivered an evening of joyful music on Monday, January 29 at Oakland’s Fox Theater. Joined by Courtship and Neil Frances, all three bands were in high spirits — each band building on the energy left in the room from the previous performance.

Wallpaper. remixes Passion Pit, new and old

Here's how it went down: Wallpaper. (Oakland) won the Fingers on the Pulse contest with their wacky remix of Passion Pit's hit "Sleepyhead" -- a fabulous exaggeration of the song's already funky allure (they lead in with the warm fuzzies, then layer in a little sexy saxophone). Passion Pit - "Sleepyhead (Wallpaper. remix)" Having tickled Passion Pit's fancy to an utmost degree, Wallpaper. were recently invited to remix "The Reeling," off the band's almost-released Manners (May 19 on Frenchkiss). About the remix, WP's Eric Frederic said, "the song has fantastic call and response vocals with a children's choir. [...]
