Fitz and Noelle Scaggs join Morgan Evans for a Philly road trip in the FIAT 500L.
Currently on an extensive US tour across some of the biggest cities in America, Fitz And The Tantrums join writer and comedian Morgan Evans on a quick drive around Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the comfort of the new FIAT 500L.
Fitz and the Tantrums hit Philly on their US tour
As Fitz and the Tantrums hit the fifth most populous city in the US for their show at the stunning Electric Factory, singers Michael 'Fitz' Fitzpatrick and Noelle Scaggs decide to take in a bit more of the city on another exciting drive in the back of a FIAT 500L. First stop is Fishtown, a neighbourhood whose strong creative ethic is currently attracting a lot of artists from other areas of the city. Visiting Nic Nacs 4 Peanuts, which sells antiques, toys and old vinyls, Noelle comes across some significant musical gems. 'This is the record that got me into singing', she reveals, brandishing En Vogue's debut single 'Hold On'.
Fitz and the Tantrums team up with FIAT in a grand tour of LA, starting with their first residency.
Frontman Fitz and co-lead singer Noelle Scaggs of Los Angeles six-piece Fitz And The Tantrums explore their beginnings in a citywide tour of their hometown from the comfort of a brand new FIAT 500L. It's a moment of nostalgia for the pair, who haven't had much chance for retrospect lately.

'This is where it all began for Fitz and the Tantrums', Fitz announces, as they pull up outside music nightspot The Satellite where the band enjoyed more than a little local support. 'If you're a band in LA this is kind of where you make your name and you cut your teeth. We ended up doing a residency where we played every Monday night for a whole month. The first night it was almost sold out, the next week it was sold out and every week after that.'

Alabama's sun-soaked, sold-out Hangout Music Fest begins officially today (May 16th 2014) following yesterday's kick-off party - and there's almost too much fun to take in.
Set against the glorious backdrop of Gulf Shores' pure white beaches, this festival truly is the place to 'hang out' this weekend with top headliners The Black Keys, The Killers, Outkast and Jack Johnson leading the talent-studded bill. Acts such as Jack Antonoff's latest project Bleachers, CLASSIXX and Bonobo's DJ set went down a storm at the Discover Great Thursday Kickoff Party, but don't worry if you missed it because things are getting even better over the rest of the weekend.

Sweetlife 2014 lives up to its name with amazing sets from Fitz & the Tantrums and Foster The People.
Sweetlife festival proved its worth with a fantastic day of quality music and incredible food at the weekend, with Foster The People and Fitz & The Tantrums among the clear highlights of the Maryland event.
We're tempted to jump on the pun bandwagon and talk about how 'sweet' Sweetlife festival was last weekend - but we'll try and avoid it. Though speaking of such, the food was an important feature of the whole day (May 10th 2014) with one memorable fact being Astro Doughnuts' batch of 2,000 of their famous sugary treat. Obviously, there were plenty of happy faces before the music even began.
With great food, a healthy atmosphere and a short but 'sweet' line-up, Sweetlife 2014 is not worth missing.
Billed as 'a music and food festival', Sweetlife 2014 is set to offer the best of both with their single day event this weekend (May 10th 2014) at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.
With the grand setting of masses of surrounding forestland, Sweetlife has developed into a much-loved annual party since its inception in 2010 when it was simply a small event held outside the Sweetgreen food destination in Dupont, Washington DC. And yet, it has maintained its solid ethics of green living and healthy eating, enforcing this with offers of local produce and green set-ups such as solar powered stages, composting waste disposal and recycling units. To make it even better, all proceeds from the event go to a very worthy charitable cause!

The band; who are vocalists Fitz and Noelle Scaggs, saxophonist James King, keyboard player Jeremy Ruzumna, bassist Joseph Karnes and drummer John Wicks; have also made live appearances on pretty much every talk show you can think of including 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!', 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show', 'Conan', 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' and 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'.
Coastline Festival 2013 brings the hottest indie bands from the UK and US to Florida this November.
Florida's Coastline Festival 2013 is set to arrive in less than two weeks, bringing with it a handful of the recent indie and rock sensations as well as great beer and great food.
The festival will hit the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa on November 9th 2013 before moving to the Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm on the 10th.
