If you’re a music lover, you’ve probably had the chance to experience brainy lyrics and brawny music. But rarely at the same time. Troubling, right? It’s cool. The Tom Tom Club has your back. They’ll be bringing their genius for funky rhythms, kooky, thought-provoking words and the best party atmosphere this side of George Clinton, when they rock the Fairfield Theatre Company on Sept. 21 and 22.
According to drummer Chris Frantz, this gig and tour will also right a record-release wrong.
“We recorded a live album in October 2001, not long after the horrible events in September,” Frantz said recently. “We thought it would be a good way to do something positive and fun and might help counteract the sadness and confusion after 9/11.”
