Cool tour alert: Fitz & the Tantrums head out with Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings

04.28.10 8 years ago 2 Comments

We”re crazy for Fitz & the Tantrums, a sharp-dressed L.A. band that is retro in all the right ways, while sounding ahead of the curve. They were heralded as a must-see band at SXSW and, if you”re on the East Coast, here”s your chance to see them. They are straight out of ’60s with their crazy love for melody. We wish Burt Bacharach would write a song for them.

The group is headed out on tour with Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings in a perfect pairing. Tour dates are below. If you can”t make it, we”ve embedded a player below. Check out “LOV” and “Breaking the Chains of Love.”
