Throngs of arms waved wildly in the air as the group ran through its catalog of party anthems. "St. Louis - What's poppin'?!" shouted Anamege as he amped the crowd. As expected, the "college" crowd danced to favorites "Truth" (which samples Passion Pit's "Better Things") and "Opposite of Adults" (borrowing the saturated pop melody of MGMT's "Kids"). "Tonight's been the most intimate show of the tour - It's a beautiful thing," said Chidera Anamege with an earnest smile.
