Eric D. Johnson, a.k.a. Fruit Bats, released "Gold Past Life" this year, a wonderful folk-pop-rock album that is his 8th album, and 3rd in a bit of a triology. How to define the music? “Fruit Bats makes existential make-out music,” Eric describes with a chuckle. “But you’re also welcome to dive into it deeper if you want. Good pop music should be sublime like that.” Showtime at The Mothlight in West Asheville Tuesday is 8pm.
