Show Review & photos by Heather Fitzpatrick

On Saturday night, during their second SOLD OUT show at the Showbox Market, Fitz & the Tantrums brought the house down to the floor and back up again with their heavily energetic dance party. Their set list (see below) included new songs, songs off of their debut CD, Pickin’ Up The Pieces, and some covers, including Nirvana’s “In Bloom,” which was definitely a fun choice for the crowd, (can you say “Sing-along”?).

They thanked Seattle for their continued support, recalling their first show here on November 9, 2010 (I was there, were you?) at the Crocodile in front of just over 100 people. Now, they sell out nearly every venue they play, and I am not surprised in the least. Fitz & the Tantrums have that kind of energy that brings the entire crowd to their feet. When they return to Seattle you should not hesitate to see their show, and you better not forget your dancing shoes.
