Needless to say, my blonde roots were showing on the day of my chat with John Wicks from Fitz and The Tantrums. Being a native Texan living in Arizona, where you never set back the clock, is bound to set anyone off eventually when discussion of time zones falls into place.
Needless to say: I mistook Mountain Time for Pacific. However, John thought just one state not changing the time for daylight savings was creepy and we were able to work out an interview over the phone.
Time-zone creepiness aside, Fitz and The Tantrums will be making their way to Phoenix on August 4 to perform at the Crescent Ballroom for their More Than Just a Dream tour. Besides the nostalgic moments that John and I obsessed over for a bit -- Fitz and the Tantrums was my first review for this paper -- we were able to chat about the differences between their first and second album, along with his obsession with running marathons and coffee -- he has his own coffee blog.
