Fitz and the Tantrums to rock Foxwoods Friday
I heard a Young Person observe the other day, on learning Fitz and the Tantrums are playing the Grand Theater at Foxwoods Friday, "I can't believe it's been 10 years since 'Moneygrabbers.'"
You know you're old when a Fitz and the Tantrums fans feel old. Hell, I felt old when Loggins & Messina split up — and that was the same day William Henry Harrison died after only being president for a month.
Well, Fitz is doing fine and so is his band — at least based on the effortlessly infectious sounds of recent tunes like "All the Feels" and "I Just Wanna Shine." They continues to churn out the same sort of polished and percussive pop we associate with the era of Imagine Dragons, Young the Giant and, yes, Loggins & Messina. I don't hear much new or a lot of stylistic growth in the new "All the Feels" album, but who cares? It sounds FUN.
Fitz and the Tantrums, 8 p.m. Friday, Grand Theater, Foxwoods; $35-$55; 1-800-200-2882.
