Reaching toward a rock star is a popular way to let them know that, unlike most fans, you appreciate both their musical work and their supple hand skin. Raise the roof with today's GrouponLive deal: for $12, you get one general-admission ticket to see Fitz and the Tantrums at The Social on Sunday, October 30, at 7 p.m. (up to a $24.20 value, including ticketing fees).
After serendipitously acquiring a vintage organ, six-musician band Fitz and the Tantrums lit upon a part-soul, part-pop sound that rocketed the band from its living room to the stage of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in about a year. Eschewing guitars in favor of powerful, Motown-esque vocals from Noelle Scaggs and instruments ranging from keys to saxophone, the sextet dedicates its first album, Pickin' Up The Pieces, to classic rock ‘n’ roll subjects that include heartache, politics, and child-rearing strategies. Named a Band to Watch by Rolling Stone, Fitz and the Tantrums satiate cravings for be-bopping melodies and ever-larger saxophones with hits such as Moneygrabber and Don’t Gotta Work It Out. Opening band Walk the Moon paints an aural canvas with shades of synth-pop and New Wave. Exposed brick walls back The Social's wide, shallow stage, placing musicians up close to congenial audiences.
