Passion Pit rocks Spotify House, Hudson Mohawke DJs a spin class, and more from Spotify's SXSW pop-up

As the music program of SXSW steams towards an end for 2015, the action only seems to get more intense as bands take to pop-up venues to debut new material, remind everyone of their greatness, or just simply do what they love doing the most, performing for appreciative fans. One such pop-up venue which has seen a tremendous amount of highlights at SXSW this year is Spotify House, and day five of their temporary digs has seen a surprise from none other than genre-bending gems Passion Pit.

Festival Review: Spin Off - Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide (02.08.13)

The Spin Off Festival returned for its second year in 2013 – yes, to a smaller venue, but there was already sense of heightened excitement and anticipation surrounding the festival this time round that seemed to be lacking when Lana Del Rey and Kimbra swanned their way across the stage at the inaugural Spin Off twelve months ago.

Splendour Sideshow Review: Passion Pit + PVT - Enmore Theatre, Sydney (27.07.13)

Good parties are a dime a dozen. Boring guests, over planning and too many onesies can all scuttle a promising celebration. Often, all a good knees-up requires is simply jumping around the room, belting out the chorus to your favourite songs and on this front, Passion Pit bring the party at their Splendour sideshow in Sydney.

Festival Review: Splendour in the Grass Day Three - North Byron Parklands, Byron Bay (28.07.13)

Winter festivals are far from an easy exercise to put yourself through, especially ones that run multi-days. When you think about it, it's quite remarkable Splendour in the Grass has become the popular event it has, line-ups irrespective. I guess people are just gluttons for punishment. I feel this way after every Splendour.
