The Film Fridays segment appears every Friday and features films and videos from students, faculty and alumni of the six schools at CalArts.
Today’s Film Fridays post comes to you from soul pop group Fitz and The Tantrums. Frontman vocalist Michael Fitzpatrick (Film/Video 95) and saxophonist James King (Music BFA 99) formed the band in late 2008. Their 2010 debut full-length album Pickin’ Up the Pieces recently reached #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.
The video above features the single Moneygrabber, which the neo-soul band has performed live on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, on TBS’ Conan and on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
