Fruit Bats (solo)
Fruit Bats (solo)
Eric D. Johnson and Andy Cabic have a lot in common. From the first time they met at a gig in Arcata, CA nearly 10 years ago at the suggestion of a mutual friend who just knew they’d hit it off, they recognized each other as kindred spirits with a common affinity for songwriting that embraces a range of feeling, strong on melodies paired with thoughtful lyrics and catchy hooks. Over the years, they’ve played in each other's bands (Fruit Bats and Vetiver), on one another’s albums (often on the same labels, Sub Pop and Easy Sound), scored films together (Smashed, After Tiller), and toured the world with one another as well as performed and collaborated alongside their friends (Cabic with Devendra Banhart and Johnson with The Shins and Califone).

In the past two years, following rounds of full-band touring supporting the release of Vetiver’s Complete Strangers and Fruit Bats’ Absolute Loser, the two have banded together for several duo shows in the United States and Europe. On stage together with two acoustic guitars, they go back-and-forth, weaving together Fruit Bats and Vetiver songs in ways that feel seamless yet reveal all the stylistic nuances that set them apart. Throw in a few songs by their favorite musicians, folks like the Incredible String Band, David Blue, and Bobby Charles, and you have a night that brings fans together in celebration of the ever-present power of song.
