UPDATE: Passion Pit coming to the Ritz Ybor in Tampa



The last time indie pop whiz kids Passion Pit came to the Ritz Ybor, the hot, sweaty dance party that ensued made Soundcheck's list of the best local concerts of the year.

Since then, the group's made a couple of equally energetic appearances at local festivals -- see here and here -- but secretly we've been waiting for them to return to more intimate quarters.

Well, the wait is over.

Passion Pit will return to the Ritz Ybor on Oct. 13, it was announced Tuesday. Tickets are $30 and up, and they go on sale Sept. 9. Click here.

As we wrote of that 2010 gig: "They hit their stride in the final three songs before the encore -- Folds In Your Hand, Smile Upon Me and the irresistible feel-good anthem Little Secrets. It was during these songs that everyone in the crowd realized no one was going home clean, so they might as well dance, yell and bounce like there was no tomorrow.... By the time the crowd screamed "Higher and higher and higher!" during the chorus, you could barely hear Angelakos' vocals. Just look at this clip!"

Can't wait!

***UPDATE*** But wait we will, unfortunately. A few days after this gig was announced, it was postponed due to a sudden schedule conflict. Click here for details.
