nder-ballroom/Location?oid=38677">Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell) Yup, Fitz and the Tantrums was just in Portland back in May, helping headline the Rose Festival's RoZone performances. But while the Los Angeles neo-soul group has more than enough energy to rock the music festival scene, you want to see them in a smaller venue— and the Roseland will do nicely. Pro tip: Just watch co-vocalist/badass tambourinist Noelle Scaggs the entire time. DIRK VANDERHART
