Passion Pit

This week legendary British/American rock band Fleetwood Mac will be headlining the Staples Center in Downtown. '90s British electropunk outfit the Prodigy will be making their triumphant return to the Hollywood Palladium. Baltimore-based avant-gardists Animal Collective (LAist Review, #2) are headlining a sold-out show at the Wiltern with Portland's own experimental folk songstress Grouper. And, lastly, Cambridge-bred electro-pop outfit Passion Pit (LAist Review) will be taking LA by storm with two sold-out shows: one at the Troubadour, one at the Echoplex.
