With several #1 hits, Los Angeles' Fitz and The Tantrums have been selling out every appearance in Minneapolis, including this upcoming First Avenue show on November 21st.
Fitz and the Tantrum's third single, "Fool's Gold" from More Than Just A Dream (Elektra Records) will likely turn 'gold', considering that their previous two preceding singles, "The Walker" and "Out Of My League" were both certified Gold.

Porland's Horse Feathers is back with a new album So It Is With Us (Kill Rock Stars), which was recorded in a barn in rural Oregon. And it's true that I've called them hipsters before....
Their tour mate is Sara Jackson-Holman, who is embarking on her very first US tour in support of her latest 6-track EP River Queen (Expunged Records). The new album is "her best work to date", according to Portland Mercury.
We previously mentioned the Portland-based pianist/singer-songwriter when she talked about her sophomore album Cardiology, in 2012.
Also, listed to appear in the St Paul show is local artist John Mark Nelson, a man we've seen three times live. And every time was extremely grateful to play to any audience.

I'll be honest, I'm not fond of the name Wet (not to be confused with hard rockers W.E.T.), the same uneasy feeling I get when I hear Moist or Pubes... which I'm sure are all band names by now?
The New York band recently showcased their music video for "Don't Wanna Be Your Girl", with help from female-run erotic magazine Beauty Today, who directed the clip. Look for their debut LP on Columbia Records in 2015... in the meantime, catch them this November 23rd before they become too popular.
Local bands Votel and Bae Tigre are set to open the show.
