Passion Pit @ Paradiso

After waiting for almost 4 months (!!), they finally came back to Amsterdam. I'm talking about the american band called Passion Pit. In juli, the leadsinger Michael Angelakos lost his voice and the band decided (a few hours before their performance!) to cancel the Amsterdam-concert in the Paradiso.
I discovered them through Last.fm radio, so I gotta give Last.fm props for that. But I also HATE them because I only have 30 tracks left on their radio account! And they won't allow me to listen to it again until I pay €3.00/month!!

Anyway, here are some pics of the night...have a nice week(end)!






I think he broke his arm after he jumped from the drummer's section to the front stage...


Thanks Passion Pit.

By the way, I have been awarded a Splash Award by Dominica from Faces and Places of of Antwerp. Probably the most exciting city of Belgium...yes or no?
I feel so honored! I'm serious here.

Woa you do so much!! That's really cool. I love going to concerts too. I've never heard of Passion Pit, they've got a nice original sound.

Glad you got to see them!!

P.S. No I'm not married. =P

Haha your too kind,
it's insane the number of comments I've got lately,
I quite honestly don't understand it myself!

And yes,
6am wakeup required for work (mainly so I can drink at least three cups of coffee before I leg it out the door!)

ehm de camera waarmee ik die foto's gemaakt heb is een sony a200, de lens die er op zit is een 3,5 -5,6 /18-17 weet eigenlijk niet echt wat dat inhoud. haha en aan de binnenkant staat macro. Dat is geloof ik wel vooral voor foto's van dichtbij.

die oude is inderdaad een nikon fm 3011.


k heb nog nooit zo'n camera gezien ziet dr echt interessant uit. Zonde als hij stuk gaat ja!

je hebt echt mooie foto's gemaakt bij dat optreden, Pakt de sfeer goed vast.
vooral die van t publiek!

With love Jessi

Flippin awesome photos. I like the color contrast of dark on dark. Looks like a great time. I know you think I'm crazy that I want a farm but it might be grass is always greener, right:)

I've seen them twice, the first before they were big when I feel in love with them, and the second, after they have been touring for a year. He really has lost his voice, its a shame as they are fantastic.
