Fitz and the Tantrums—one of L.A’s best-known indie groups—has made an stop in Tampa Bay on a practically annual basis, excluding last year and 2020 under obvious circumstances. The band gets back on track this weekend when Fitz brings it to Tampa's Hard Rock Event Center on Sunday, July 31.

Besides the sextet behind “Moneygrabber” recently releasing “Sway,” its first post-COVID project, band namesake Michael Fitzpatrick did give fans a solo debut, Head Up High, last year, featuring the same upbeat, and oftentimes overproduced sound his band’s fans have come to know and love.
Andy Grammer, also high off of a new EP release, opens this third date of a summer run of shows kicking off in Key West.
