What to say about Fruit Bats, aka band leader/occasional Shins member Eric D. Johnson and company? Well, the West Coast outfit will be bringing some much needed (we assume) pop-folk east for a set at Brighton Music Hall tonight. That’s totally one thing. Also, if you think about it, their name kinda sounds like one of those knock-off generic brand cereals that are always on the bottom shelf at supermarkets. That’s totally another thing, and our second cereal reference this week! Boom. Done and done. And they said the “Cereal Issue” wasn’t a real thing.
You’re welcome, Ed.
