Boston-based Passion Pit began as the one-man project of singer and songwriter Michael Angelakos to produce a Valentine's Day gift for his girlfriend. The gift, an album titled Chunk of Change, wound up in the hands of friends and acquaintances that were enthralled with the work. Eventually, Passion Pit became not only a vehicle for the romantic expressions of Angelakos' heart but a full-fledged band, opening for a number of well-known artists, including Death Cab for Cutie.

Passion Pit’s electronic indie pop has been featured on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” MTVu’s Woodie Awards, and gained them a nomination at MTV’s 2009 Video Music Awards. In 2010, Passion Pit has been selling out shows all over the United States, Europe, Asia and Australia. The show is brought to the area by WXPN radio.
