Lollapalooza: Fitz & The Tantrums

Fitz & The Tantrums were once again amazing.

They're another soul and R&B revival band but it of course has it's own twist.

Three years ago, the band didn't exist. In March, I saw the band at a small club at SXSW. And on Saturday, thousands saw them perform on one of the fest's main stages.

Bandleader Michael Fitzpatrick came out in a pink suit and striped t-shirt (I wish I could wear that and be taken seriously) and was joined by his amazing band, which includes incredible singer Noelle Scaggs.

They kicked things off with "Breaking The Chains of Love" and followed with just about every song on their new album. They also did covers of The Raconteurs' "Steady As She Goes" and a soul version of the Eurhythmics' "Sweet Dreams."

Fitz and his pals can turn just about anything into a dance pit and Rey turned up the heat with the set-closing "Moneygrabber."
