Fruit Bats bring some bite to the Jackpot
”Lawrence is good,” ruminated Eric Johnson at the mic stand.
He sounded surprised. “I like this town,” he said.
Larryville can be quite charming when it wants to be; and last night, the romper-clad college kids were drunk, dancing, and loving on Johnson’s band — indie-folk pioneers Fruit Bats — hard. Johnson must have been digging Jackpot last night, too, where the band rolled out a set of songs for the first time in the Kansas City area; like many good first dates, it turned out to be a late night.
