If the music is too loud, you're too old.

Green Passion

I just got off a bus. From Cork. After having driven down yesterday to see Passion Pit as part of Heineken Green Spheres at the Savoy. We nearly missed the gig due to a dead clutch, wrong insurance companies, a tow truck and a lost suitcase…. A stressful journey to say the least. But entirely worth it.

My first Heineken Green Spheres experience was in Carlow for Marina & the Diamonds, Miike Snow & Digitalism. And surprsingly it wasn’t the music that I remember, but the atmosphere. And last night was no different. Be it the Heineken, the decor, the massive walls of LED’s or the excited concert goers, Green Spheres manage to implant a unique ‘festival’ buzz into their venues. Their level of thought and creativness deserves to be applauded.

This translated very well into Passion Pits performance who were clearly energised by the reaction of the Savoy from the first song, to the last. The bands setup was tidier than at Electric Picnic as was the movement from keyboard to keyboard… making it the perfect setting for Michael Angelakos to belt out their album, ‘Manners’ with that unbelievable voice of his. Passion Pits music demands dancing, arm waving and jumping and the audience did not dissapoint. As Sleepyhead rang through the Savoy to an eager audience, massive green balloons descended from the ceiling and onto the crowd, sealing what was a perfectly explosive night.

Perfect. And Definitely worth the €500 car repair job!
