What do Metallica, Jethro Tull, the Beastie Boys, and Red Hot Chili Peppers all have in common? They’ve all performed at the Houston Field House at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute! Unfortunately, the RPI Houston Field House has been musically silent for over two years. That will all change on Monday night, February 11, when Passion Pit, with special guest Matt and Kim, perform in a WEQX/Step Up Presents event.
Passion Pit is an indie rock band from Cambridge, MA formed in 2007. The band consists of Michael Angelakos (lead vocals, keyboards), Ian Hultquist (keyboards, guitar), Xander Singh (synthesizer), Jeff Apruzzese (bass, synth bass), and Nate Donmoyer (drums).
The bands resume includes two studio albums, an EP, and a growing collection of hit singles. Their current hit, “Take a Walk”, continues to climb the US and UK pop charts. Other band highlights include an appearance on Saturday Night Live (“Take a Walk” and “Carried Away”) and a single on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2: Original Soundtrack (“Where I Come From”).
Show time is 8 PM. Tickets are available for $38 at the RPI Houston Field House box office. Call 518-276-6262 for more info.
