on the Fruit Bats
I almost lied and said I was addicted to this song after 1:29 but dang it, the electric organ thingy had me after ten seconds. I found a bunch of other gems in their catalog. The band has been around for awhile, they’re Portland-based. I dunno what it was but all of the sudden a few weeks ago I got curious about them. One of the longtime members has been in another favorite local band of mine and the main singer/frontman Eric Johnson was a band member with The Shins in the past, I’m not sure if he still is…..
I was a little bummed to find out after-the-fact that they played at Bumbershoot. Did you know, I have NEVER been to Bumbershoot? The closest I’ve come to Bumbershoot is scooping up a ton of loose change in the grass a week later while I waited for Adam to finish his ballet lessons.
