Passion Pit, an indie band with one of the biggest hits in the country, will headline Tachevah: A Palm Springs Block Party, Goldenvoice and The Desert Sun announced today.
Passion Pit’s current hit, “Carried Away,” recently spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Alt-Nation weekly countdown on Sirius satellite radio. Its latest album, “Gossamer,” debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 last year and also produced the radio hit, “Take A Walk.”
The wait is almost over: The Tachevah headliner will be announced Friday!
The Pedestrians, Tribesmen, and You Me & Us will open for the headliner selected by Goldenvoice, and DJ Alf Alpha will keep the groove going between sets.

The concert is sponsored by The Desert Sun/mydesert.com, Goldenvoice, PS Resorts, Harold Matzner and the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians.
