Fitzgerald’s Pop on a Tuesday

I was looking for some random new-to-me live music to see and didn’t have to look too far.

Tuesday at Fitzgerald’s are two duos who do pop music (The opener self describes as electronic soul). One from Britain, one from NY now residing in CA. Both are guy/girl combos, sharing vocals. I’m in a pop music kind of mood of late.

The Ting Tings are the headliner. @TheTingTings



And kaneholler is the opener. @kaneholler
