The National Falceto Championships

Another night and another sold out show at Bowery Ballroom. I must say that I am biased when it comes to Passion Pit and Paper Route and I like to take credit for introducing the bands to each other. Nevertheless, it was apparent that this tour may be getting the better of these two immensely talented groups.

Some observations from the night:










The crowd was crazy young… which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. “I keep getting older, they stay the same age.”











Ayad is going to be a star in his own right. Something about a kid who jumps up and down in excitement after receiving his green card is enough evidence for me to make such a statement.

















Paper Route is an elite band with vocalists who never disappoint despite shitty cuban food.











Michael loves him some grilled peanut butter and banana sammies.


Overall, the show was excellent. Passion Pit played a couple new tunes and I was informed that this Bowery show is the last of the old set. I won’t name my source, but this is definitely incentive to go check them out when they tour in support of the new album.
