Passion Pit became a crossover success with the ebullient electronic beats and helium-high singalong choruses of such songs as “Sleepyhead” and “Little Secrets” off 2009 debut album “Manners.” Earlier this year the band released a follow-up, “Gossamer,” that takes its spastic electropop into deeper and darker places while still offering sugary sweet hooks. The band is touring behind the album, with a stop scheduled for Oct. 16 at the 9:30 Club. Tickets go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. through Tickefly and cost $35.
