Fitz and the Tantrums EndSession 06.26.14

June 26, 2014

Fitz and the Tantrums stopped by the station early Thursday evening to perform an acoustic EndSession for a handful of people under a perfect blue sky.  If you've ever seen Fitz and the Tantrums you know that it's an event.  Horns, drums, every instrument you can imagine on stage.& nbsp; This EndSession was different.  An acoustic guitar, a tambourine and some powerful vocal chords were all that was needed and I have to say that I was really, really impressed with the stripped down version of Fitz and the Tantrums.  They are playing at Showbox Sodo Friday night and I'm sure that the full band will be there and it will be as badass a performance as ever because make no mistake about it...Fitz and the Tantrums put on a badass show but I've got to say I feel really fortunate to have witnessed this performance. 

One funny moment I have to mention..after they were finished playing 'The Walker' which as you probably know features a lot of whistling, Fitz looked right at me and said " pictures of me whistling!  You can't look cool while your whistling."  I've done a few selfies since then and realized that his statement was true.  All whistling photos have been deleted.  I challenge you to snap a selfie while whistling and post it to  It's hard to look cool while your whistling. 

GregR plays an EndSession song every day at 8:20 and Manley plays it again at 4:20...if you are reading this you should text 90210 and tell them you want to hear a song from this EndSession because it was pretty awesome(maybe give them a few days before you pester them too much :)
