On September 26, 2009, Boston band Passion Pit played the second of two sold out shows at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park. Opening for French band Phoenix, Passion Pit got the crowd warmed up with their mix of electro, pop and rock.  When they played their hit single, “Sleepyhead,” the crowd went absolutely crazy!  Lead singer Michael Angelakos has a voice that is a cross between MGMT, Scissor Sisters and Mika.  This is definitely a band to watch.
