Mouthfuls 10-year Anniversary

Hey Folks – this fall the good people at Portland’s Jealous Butcher will be doing a limited edition vinyl only reissue of Fruit Bats’ 2003 record, ‘Mouthfuls.’ Hand painted covers and the whole nine yards. The thing never got released on wax so here’s an opportunity to hear it how the audio gods intended you to. Details on release dates to follow… The important part of this news is that we’ll be playing a few Northwest dates – playing all of Mouthfuls from start to finish (as well as other stuff)…. Our homies The Donkeys will be on the bill as well…. See you soon!

11.14 @ Neptune – Seattle, WA (‘MOUTHFULS’ in its entirety and more)

11.15 @ Upstairs Cabaret – Victoria, BC (‘MOUTHFULS’ in its entirety and more)

11.16 @ Aladdin Theatre – Portland, OR (‘MOUTHFULS’ in its entirety and more)



Hey Sweet Friends!

Long time no talk. Sorry. Been busy doing a bunch of movie stuff and producing some other folks’ records which is fun. But there is some Fruit Bats live business on the horizon for you.

I’ll be playing some Robyn Hitchcock tunes at the Fillmore in SF on May 2nd with an INSANE lineup   including the man himself… It’s a celebration of RH’s 60th b-day. Did I mention the lineup is rad?

Then, I’ll be playing a show with my good pal Andy Cabic of Vetiver at The Chapel  in SF on May 8th, it’s Andy and I playing all your favorite Vetiver/Fruit Bats hits plus some choice covers with an all star Bay Area lineup. We’ll be following that show up with the same deal at the Mother Hips’ awesome Hipnic  in Big Sur on May 11th.

Later in the summer, the full wrath of Fruit Bats will be unleashed upon Carnation, WA at the brand-spankin’ new Timber Festival (on July 27th.)

Also a small handful of new Fruit Bats shows that we’ll let you in on very soon… Mouthfuls 10 Year anniversary shows this year. Yep!

Love you,


The dates thus far:

EDJ at Viva Hitchcock!….The Fillmore…San Fransisco….May 2nd
Cabic and Johnson Band….. The Chapel…. San Francisco….. May 8th
Cabic and Johnson Band….. Fernwood Resort/Hipnic…. Big Sur….. May 11th
