In a recent interview with OPB.org, Fruit Bats’ Eric D. Johnson tells readers about what a Pet Parade is. “It was this thing that my grandma used to take me to. It’s like going to a costume party with your dog or cat, but also in parade form. It’s just the most Americana thing you’ve ever seen, and yet also very psychedelic and kind of weird and kind of ridiculous.” Read the full interview, which goes into the history of Johnson’s long-running project, here.
Of course, The Pet Parade is also the name of Johnson’s newest record, which hit #4 at NACC last week. Thanks for all the support! Keep spinning the record, and help it reach an even higher peak.
