Eric Johnson From Fruit Bats and The Shins Gives Me A Few Minutes While On His Way To An In-store…

fruitbatsThe Sub Pop band The Fruit Bats toured through town last week. I was able to catch a few words with them before they left Boston and then did a quick phoner with the lead member Eric Johnson while he was on his way to a Chicago in-store yesterday in Wicker Park. The Fruit bats have been number one on the CMJ charts with their new well-received album, The Ruminant Band.
