Fruit Bats, the Donkeys

BRANDON WIDDER
8 pm., Saturday November 16 | $15.
Aladdin Theater
3017 SE Milwaukie Ave.
 
[COFFEE SHOP QUIRK] Folksy, vibraphone-dappled pop wasn’t exactly hip when Fruit Bats released its second LP, Mouthfuls, in 2003. But the album—which the Chicago-reared band, led by Eric Johnson, is playing in full here—is arguably the most beloved of the band’s work. It’s laced with acoustic strumming and weird, electronic curls in the form of drum machines, keys and other digitized fixings. Although much of the album is made up of bummed-out love ballads, the Shins-y “Rainbow Sign” and twee closer “When U Love Somebody” remain fan favorites.
