Fitz and the Tantrums

When: Tue., Nov. 18, 7 p.m. 2014

A soul-influenced indie pop band that cites acts from Motown, Muscle Shoals, and Stax as inspiration should fare well in Detroit, right? Duh. Detroit will always have a deep-seated appreciation for that kind of music — it’s in our musical DNA. On their latest record, last year’s More Than Just a Dream, Fitz and his Tantrums add New Wave influences like synths and drum machines to their retro sound with great success. Electronic act Big Data also play.
