What a year it’s been for Fitz and the Tantrums. Since the PopMatters interview last Memorial Day weekend in the basement of a small venue in New York City, the band has toured non-stop with a full schedule ahead—now they’re on the bill at Sasquatch. Their music has found placements on television and they were called upon to remake “Arthur’s Theme Song” (maybe the movie didn’t do so well, but still!) VH-1 also honored the band as an “Artist on the Rise” in the “You Oughta Know” series in April, and as of this week’s Top Twenty Countdown, “Money Grabber” is at number 14. Whether this song was on your playlist last summer or not, it’s a fun rock-out tune to kick off the season.
