In my opinion, one of Sub Pop's most intriguing acts of the moment is Fruit Bats. The Chicago via LA via Portland band, headed by Eric D. Johnson, makes music for slow summer nights and backyard BBQ's, both of which are perfect for this time of year. The band rolls into town this Thursday, August 20th for a gig at the Crocodile and we've got a pair of tickets to giveaway to a lucky reader.
Just email us with the words Fruit Bats in the subject line and a winner will be chosen at random tomorrow afternoon. To hear a few songs off of their new album, The Ruminant Band, which came out August 4th headed to this site and give it a listen. Regardless of if you win the free tickets or not, admission to the show on Thursday is $12 and they're playing with the Palmer Electric Co. and Johnny and the Moon.
Update: This contest is now closed! Thanks for playing folks.
