The high energy of Passion Pit makes it easy to sing along with quirky lines like, “Once my mother-in-law came/just to stay a couple nights/then decided she would stay the rest of her life.” The high energy of Passion Pit makes it easy to sing along with quirky lines like, “Once my mother-in-law came/just to stay a couple nights/then decided she would stay the rest of her life.”

Passion Pit’s sophomore album, Gossamer, stitches light-filled pop anthems with grown-up lyrics and a fluid style that shifts from bombastic synth slashing to singer-songwriter slow jams. Consider its lead single, “Take a Walk,” which pairs the story of an émigré’s failing marriage and financial ruin with a dance-worthy, uptempo beat. Get moving—and feeling—when the Boston-based foursome brings its indie intrigue to town.

Sunday 9/29. $35, 7pm. nTelos Wireless Pavilion, Downtown Mall. 245-4910.
