Ticket Giveaway! Passion Pit at Hollywood ArtsPark

By | October 16th, 2012 | 25 Comments

Boston band Passion Pit is performing at the Hollywood ArtsPark at Young Circle on Tuesday, October 23. The foursome, lead by lead vocalist and keyboard player Michael Angelakos, is touring behind their second studio album, Gossamer, a high-energy, high-anxiety record whose relentless pulse and celebratory synths might endanger someone with a heart condition (roll the “Take A Walk” video at full blast to see what I mean).

We have a pair of tickets to the show to give away to one lucky fan. To enter to win, tell us what puts you in a “passion pit” in the comment section of this post. We will announce the winner on the Beached Miami Facebook page on Sunday.

Update: And the winner is …

    The state of being AWE’D by the pleasures of listening to amazingly arranged music. There is no greater feeling than that of being in a melodic “Pit full of Passion” while sharing a sense of “oneness” with the rest of the crowd present. <3

    Traveling and seeing and learning about places all over the world that I never thought I’d see. It’s the best feeling ever and it’s never satisfied. There’s always more to see and more to learn.

    The fact that the highlight of living in Hollywood in the 90s was a trip to the Grand Prix whereas now we have a bitchin’ concert at a bitchin’ park.

    I want to explain instead the last time I saw Passion Pit, and why I deserve to see them again. I was told by a friend that he could get me and another person free tickets to the concert because he worked at the venue (Club Firestone in Orlando) I told my ex-girlfriend, whom I was still in love with (who lived in Gainesville), that I could take her to see them there for her birthday. She was happy to accept. The day before the concert, I still had not gotten the tickets and was getting nervous. My friend finally told me that the show was sold out and on top of it had been over sold, almost double capacity, he could do nothing for me. I didn’t want to disappoint this girl so like a true idiot I found tickets online from a scalper and bought them for about $160 dollars (it would have cost about 15 a ticket if I had bought tickets properly ahead of time. At the concert, attempting to make a move, before the band started, I was informed that this girl had a new guy in her life. It was hard to imagine having a good time at the show from that point on, but Passion Pit was actually great. The rest of the evening awful.

    FUNNY PART OF THE STORY. The previous night, the band in Heaven got to open up for Surfer Blood at Revolution, so I had a backstage wristband and I knew the number password to open the door to get backstage. The previous night, at the Surfer Blood show, they had endless bottles of liquor and beer, we had a real party up there. I thought that I could go backstage and steal some beers from Passion Pit and no one would notice, that they probably had a crazier set up than Surfer Blood. I went up (before the band went on) opened the door, and saw that there was no one in the green room but Passion Pit, no bottles of liquor, no cases of beer, just the band sitting on a couch. I didn’t want to act suspicious so I casually walked to the refrigerator. There was one 6 pack in there, only 5 remaining beers. I could not leave without taking something, that would look so much more suspicious than taking nothing at all. So I took three of the beers, glanced at the band, and walked back downstairs.

    So I would like to win tickets to see them again with no sadness or weirdness looming over the night.
