Pickathon Starlight Series Kicks Off With Fruit Bats

“Humbug Mountain Song” is one of the high points on Fruit Bats 2016 LP Absolute Loser, and the band’s performance of the song was among the high points at the idyllic Pickathon festival earlier this year. That’s why Season 2 of The Starlight Series, a monthly video series of performances from Pickathon being put online by The Stranger and The Portland Mercury, has begun with footage of Eric D. Johnson and his band playing the song. According to The Stranger, “This take perfectly encapsulates the Pickathon vibe, a relaxed yet peppy delivery of a laid-back, slightly twangy tune that sounds just right when you crank it up loud.” Watch it right here.

Fruit Bats will be back on tour later this month. Go see the band if you can!
