Ticket Giveaway - Passion Pit w/Cults - 6.6.13 - Stage AE - Show Preview - Concert Preview

A very good double bill happen on Thursday, 6.6 at Stage AE. Cults, the 60's infused rock duo on Columbia Records, will be appearing with dance instilled Brooklyn based Passion Pit (also on Columbia). Passion Pit was here not too long in November and played to a sold out crowd at Stage AE. We had the pleasure of seeing Cults play a sold out as well back in 2011 at the Brillobox with their brother act Guards. Like Passion Pit, a fun live performance is always in the cards. We are happy to be giving away a pair of tickets to the show. As usual, just email us your name to pghmusicreport@gmail.com to enter.



From Cults press:

New York City based duo Cults have announced their first set of 2013 tour dates in anticipation of their sophomore release. Cults will join Passion Pit for an east coast string of dates starting June 3rd at Cains
Cults is Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion. The duo is currently finishing the follow up to their critically-acclaimed, 2011 debut release. Heralded by the New York Times for playing “a simple, entrancing and intuitive strain of indie rock indebted to clean-cut ’50s rock with flashes of ’60s haze,” Cults will be performing with their five-piece live act that includes Gabe Rodriguez (guitar), Nathan Aguilar (bass) and Cory Stier (drums).



Passion Pit press:

The band's first full-length studio album, Manners, was released in 2009. The song "Let Your Love Grow Tall" was featured in the TV series Ugly Betty. The album's second single, "To Kingdom Come," was used in the Rhapsody commercial for its iPhone application. The song "Moth's Wings" was used in the CW teen drama Gossip Girl and in the closing credits of HBO's Big Love.Gossamer, which was released on Columbia Records, debuted at #4 on the Billboard top 200 and immediately earned rave reviews from the New York Times, The Guardian, Pitchfork, and Rolling Stone magazine.

"We did the vast majority of the vocals for the record with the Copperhead," continued Chris Zane. "It has a super-natural and very pleasant curve to it. Warm, but clear — not jumpy or spiky, just very smooth. It sounds like the way you want a vocal to sound without having to do anything to it. I’ve been using it ever since Gossamer on a bunch of records, with great results every time."

Show begin at 8p and doors at 7p. Tickets can be found here.
