OK, here's what I want you to do: Click the play button on this youtube video, close your eyes, and listen until the end.
Go ahead, I'll wait.
It's not that Fitz and The Tantrums aren't a stylish and attractive bunch—indeed they are. What you're hearing is something that I like to call timeless authenticity. Some bands simply have it - effortless soul, swagger and groove.
I close my eyes and it's the 1970's again. You know, when the real shit was going down.
Fitz and The Tantrums are currently on the road in support of their Dangerbird Records debut, Pickin' Up the Pieces. The tour stops Monday night in DC at the Rock and Roll Hotel and we've got a pair of tickets to put in the hands of one of you authentic souls.
And it's with this show and ticket giveaway that we're pleased to announce our partnership with our favorite DC arts website, ReadysetDC for all of our ticket giveaways going forward. We'll be sharing and cross-promoting both of our ticket contests so you can enter to win any and all either here at TVD or at ReadysetDC. (Yes, we're streamlining your evening plans.)
You have until Monday morning (9/20) at 9am to enter to win the pair of Fitz and The Tantrums tickets by leaving a response in the comments to this post, again either below or at ReadysetDC. Good luck and remember to leave us a contact email address!
