Fitz & the Tantrums, ZZ Ward, Royal Teeth

When: Sun., June 10, 8 p.m. 2012

Taking its name from frontman Michael Fitzpatrick, Los Angeles sextet Fitz and The Tantrums crafts blue-eyed soul that borrows its slickness from classic R&B and catchiness from Motown, with just a hint of contemporary influence to tip off listeners that they're not hearing a relic. While not striving for strict authenticity like the analog lovers in Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, The Tantrums are among the most accessible soul revival acts around. Oregon singer-songwriter ZZ Ward's bluesy moans liberally borrow both musically and lyrically from hip-hop. Louisiana six-piece Royal Teeth opens with bright co-ed ditties drowned in synths. —Spencer Griffith
