Fruit Bats - 2010-03-26 - The Mill - Iowa City, IA

I caught Fruit Bats at LouFest in St. Louis, MO last August and was really into their sound. The Chicago born band reminded of some good old classic rock I suppose, particularly Led Zeppelin. Very nostalgic feeling stuff. They cover Harry Nilsson, Bob Dylan AND Neil Young (Revolution Blues!) in this set from 2010. Check out this KEXP Seattle video below to get a visual taste.

Cool! I bought their first LP on vinyl and saw them in Atlanta and really dig them. Thanks for this live souveneir!
