Music To Know Festival

Been hearing whispers about a festival happening in the Hamptons this summer and they finally released all the details. I have spent a lot of time in the Hamptons and it's exciting to that music is going to be part of the summer scene. The festival entitled Music To Know or MTK has Vampire Weekend and Bright Eyes headlining with a lot of bands we have mentioned on Off The Radar over the last few years like Chromeo, Tame Impala (one of my favorite albums and live shows of 2010), Young Empires, and The Naked and Famous. Also really excited about Ra Ra Riot as well as M. Ward. For a full line up and ticket information head to their website. One band we over looked worth mentioning is Fitz and the Tantrums. Sometimes things are just too big to be on our radar.

Fitz and the Tantrums is rousing horns combined with organs and killer beats for a timeless sound that is bound to have you tapping your feet. The combination of Fitz and Noelle Scaggs vocals is just undeniable and so fun to see live. If you don't have their album 'Picking Up The Pieces' stream it (and buy it!). Check out the official video for my favorite tune by them "Moneygrabber". I remember Fitz being a Hamptons fixture in my first few summers out there and am sure he will feel right at home on that stage.
