GEORGETOWN—Intermix and Passion Pit are a match made in heaven. The uber-hip band was in town for several shows at the 9:30 Club and decided to give fashion fans some tunes at the Intermix opening at 3222 M Street in Gtown. Fans were able to check out the store's wares while getting down to an awesome DJ session. And Svedka cocktails to wash it all down.
