French rock band Phoenix played their second of two sold out shows in New York’s Rumsey Playfield in Central Park on September 26, 2009.  A little bit of rain did not stop these French rockers from making the audience dance, groove and lose control as they played hit after hit including their new single “Liztomania.”  A few fun facts about Phoenix (try saying that 1o times fast!):  Phoenix started off as the backing band for the group Air on a remix of “Kelly Watch The Stars.”  Some of the members also split off to join the band that would eventually become Daft Punk.

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.
