Fitz & The Tantrums have a new album coming out on June 10th and they're launching a tour with a stop in Missoula. Sure they are a bit poppy, but they are an incredible band and they put on a helluva live show. Fitz played the Wilma in 2014 and it was one of the best shows I've ever seen there, and I've seen a ton of shows in that venue.

The Washington Post called Fitz and The Tantrums’ live show “captivatingly crazy” and Rolling Stone praised the band for its “irrepressible energy: hopped-up rhythms, shout-it-out choruses, and hooted background vocals” in a review of More Than Just a Dream. The New York Times noted, “Their debut effort, ‘Pickin’ Up the Pieces’ (Dangerbird), and follow-up, ‘More Than Just a Dream’ (Elektra), burst with danceable hooks.” The Los Angeles Times said, “Fitz…understands what makes a good song…And co-vocalist Noelle Scaggs’ charisma overflows.”
