Dream Concert: Fruit Bats

With the Dream Concert feature, I usually make a "dream" set list and choose the venue for a hypothetical show with one of my favorite bands that I have yet to witness live. But this one is a little bit different because I have actually seen the Fruit Bats before. I saw them open for Modest Mouse on both nights of a two nights stay at the Southgate House in Newport, KY in September of 2001. So it has been ten years and four albums since I have seen Eric Johnson and his poppy indie folk outfit. It's almost like I've never seen them! Well, tonight I get that chance and at the venue I would choose, The Southgate House, as the Fruit Bats are on tour to support their new album Tripper, with neo-folkie and fellow Sub Pop label mate Vetiver opening. Here is a list of songs I hope they play.
