Monday night’s show was a long time coming… we had a needed break from the daily grind of school plus Fitz And The Tantrums were in town. (NB: This time, we assisted a friend in calling in to WFPK for tickets and with our magic influence, she got a pair to join us- apparently we’re just that good.)
We weaved our way towards the front, left side of the stage, right in front of Noelle. Talk about a performer- I’m pretty sure she never stopped moving throughout their set and had such contagious energy. Watching her dance around with such natural rhythm made me think I was equally as smooth. That’s absolutely delusional but I had a blast jamming with her and getting their “clap” bracelet to light up. We ran into one of my friend’s mom and her boyfriend after the show- they had just as much fun as we did. This tells me that what Fitz And The Tantrums are doing transcends one particular group of people.
At some point in every show we attend, the band will give the obligatory “thank you.” When the FATT crew gave their thanks Monday night towards the end of the evening, it felt truly sincere. This genuine appreciation wasn’t necessarily unexpected, because I am sure that every group that performs really is grateful of the people that attend and back their music, but it was different- not just a routine. I thought that was pretty cool.
