Passion Pit‘s never-ending tour in support of their 2012 album continued at Fox Theater Oakland October 21, giving another example of what it takes for artists to make money in the current musical landscape. Long gone are the days of albums that cost $16.99 at Sam Goody, and for groups to turn big profits they must turn into road warriors. The group have been touring since the release of Gossamer in April 2012, and it’s been relatively smooth sailing since frontman Michael Angelakos went public with issues managing his bi-polar disorder (except for that time 75% of the group’s equipment got destroyed).

The Joy Formidable opened, and Marc Fong was on the scene catching the snaps.
