A Big Night For Fun.

Posted By on Tue, Feb 12, 2013 at 5:57 PM

Sunday night’s Grammy Awards were full of great music collaborations and of course, scandalous and skimpy outfits (Regardless of the memo that was sent out asking stars to keep visible skin to a minimum).

Although the dresses and designers of the Grammy’s always hit the headlines hard in the following days, the most exciting part of the Grammy’s for me was seeing Fun. receive two awards.

Fun., consisting of Andrew Dost, Jack Antonoff, and Arizonan Nate Ruess, took home Song of the Year for their hit single, “We Are Young.” They beat out Ed Sheeran, Miguel Pimentel, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Kelly Clarkson in this category.

After winning Song of the Year, Fun. was also honored with winning the Grammy for Best New Artist over Alabama Shakes, Hunter Hayes, The Lumineers, and Frank Ocean.

It was great to see Fun., as well as other indie bands such as Mumford and Sons, take home these prestigious awards in the music industry and see a shift from the typical winners.

Fun. also announced last week a headlining tour with Tegan and Sara titled “Most Nights.” The tour will not be stopping in Tucson, but for those of you interested in seeing this Grammy winning band, there will be a stop at Comerica Theatre in Phoenix on Sept. 10.
