Fitz & the Tantrums Playing for Occupy Wall Street at Zuccotti Park

Posted on: November 10th, 2011 at 6:19 am by

Occupy Wall Street at Zuccotti Park is swiftly becoming an international stage for musicians and celebrities to self-promote. Tuesday afternoon, sixties protest songwriters David Crosby and Graham Nash played a little acoustic performance; MTV aired an episode of its True Life series centered on the movement; even Russell Simmons showed up last month.

Moving on…Later this morning at 11:30 am, six-piece Boogie favorite Fitz & the Tantrums is playing a not-so-impromptu gig down at Zuccotti Park. An announcement on their Facebook page confirms that the aptly-titled song “Moneygrabber” is one song of choice in support of the cause. The free show is a publicity stunt ahead of their gig tonight at Terminal 5.

We are heading down to #OccupyWallStreet tomorrow at 11:30 am Zuccotti park to perform moneygrabber to show our support. Please come and put your foot down!
