Bright Futures Tour-86On November 7th The Bright Futures Tour featuring Beat Club, Capital Cities, and Fitz & The Tantrums came to Marathon Music Works in Nashville, TN. This tour had been much anticipated in Music City and had been sold out for a little while. Most of the crowd arrived early to the show and the venue was nearly packed by the time the first band took the stage. It was clear to see that this show was the place to be that night.

The show opened with Beat Club who at first appeared uncomfortable on stage but warmed up to the crowd considerably by the end of the night. Their on stage production wasn’t anything too impressive but the audience enjoyed their music and got into it regardless. If you enjoy Passion Pit, Grouplove, or Walk The Moon you’ll enjoy Beat Club.

Following Beat Club was dance-pop sensations Capital Cities. After making it on the charts with their single “Safe and Sound” they won over thousands of people and gained thousands of fans. Their live show did not disappoint. From their light show to their energy to their sound they had the fans jumping throughout the entire show. The most impressive and unique thing about Capital Cities is the way they came together and how beautifully it all worked out. They’re a band that was born on craigslist and look at how far they’ve come. Their future is definitely bright so the tour name is suited to them.

Finally, after lots of waiting and dancing, Fitz & The Tantrums took the stage. Another band that has recently started to gain fans and fame, Fitz & The Tantrums took the show to a whole new level. There wasn’t a dull moment in their set. Even when they slowed things down with an acoustic version of “Last Raindrop” the energy in the crowd was maintained. After their energetic set the crowd still wanted more so the band came back for an encore in which they played “MoneyGrabber” and “The Walker”. Overall the show was a blast and if you’re into having a great time at shows and dancing until your feet hurt, you should keep these bands on your radar.
