We smell a future collaboration.
The dudes in Nickelback have to be impressed by the unofficial side-stage sing-along provided by Passion Pit and Yes Giantess this past weekend in Japan. Boston's dance-pop elite were joined by 3OH!3 off the Marine Stage for a rousing shout-it-out, first-in-the-air rendition of arena-rock mehahit "How You Remind Me."
Ayo, drug fiends: good seeing you at SINDEN's set last night at the Middle East downstairs. Apologies if you were there and not tripping your face off -- but we're gonna need a urine sample before we even begin to take you seriously. As if there was any question, we now understand why the dude runs UK radio; what Diplo does with a loveable dose of slop, Sinden stitches into short, taut, mule-kickingly efficient waves.
Every since our readers voted YES, GIANTESS as "Best New Band" in this summer's 2009 Boston Phoenix Best Music Poll, those dudes have been en fuego. Next Passion Pit? Pshaw. They've just jumped on as the openers for LA ROUX's upcoming, sold-out US tour -- which kicks off here next weekend at the Paradise -- and are dropping remixes at a furious pace.
