May 3: The Fruit Bats


The Fruit Bats are the brainchild of singer/ songwriter Eric Johnson (member of The Shins and Vetiver). While the last two Fruit Bats records were fairly pleasant slabs of folk-flecked indie rock jangle, their latest album - Spelled In Bones - shows the band taking HUGE strides towards a bigger sound and better songs and a much more expansive sonic world. Described in almost every review as “the Shins meet Califone,” The Fruit Bats have now managed to become more than that, definitely their own band, although the sonic referents to those two outfits certainly can’t be ignored. Johnson’s voice is eerily similar to the Shins’ James Mercer, but where Mercer’s vocals tend toward the ebullient and poptastically bombastic, the music following suit, Johnson tends toward the more melancholy, occasionally slipping into a perfectly lovely falsetto, all over delicate piano and strummed minor key guitar, the jangle muted and subtle, with lap steel filigree giving the proceedings a lush, countrified feel.


174 SPOKANE CDA • May • 2012 May 19: Reverend Horton Heat


Recently, the Reverend Horton Heat, aka Jim Heath, had something along the lines of what he calls an epiphany. He’s a little tired of being taken so seriously - well, maybe not seriously, exactly, but you get the idea - and lately he’s noticed that some of his funnier, country-tinged songs were his biggest crowd pleasers. Besides, being entertaining is what this is all about, right? So, ladies and gents, roll your smokes up in your sleeve and hold on to your cowboy hats, it’s time to take a trip back to a time before slick, over-produced country became the norm - a time when outlaws wrote songs about being without a dime - or at least about psycho ex-boyfriends and deadbeat girlfriends that spend your paycheck faster than you can say Lone Star.

May 15: Social Distortion In the late 1970s the first raw, sloppy, speeding guitar chords began to blare from the garages and back-rooms of a Southern California suburb called Orange County. They echoed a sound forged in the preceding years in the seminal punk undergrounds of New York City and London. At the forefront of this revolution in sound was a young group who had called themselves Social DIstortion. 30 years later, their sound is still as electrifying as it was then. This show will also feature the Toadies and up-and-comer Lindi Ortega. Knitting Factory Concert House. 919 W. Sprague Ave. Spokane, WA, 99201.
