My Morning Jacket / Fruit Bats @ Austin Music Hall - 10/23/2015
My Morning Jacket have been on a tour, which just hit Austin for shows at the Music Hall on Thursday (10/22) and Friday (10/23). Both nights had different setlists, which you can check out below. We caught the Friday show and pictures of that one are in this post.
Opening both of those shows and other nights on the tour was Eric D Johnson's band Fruit Bats, which is back again after Eric spent two years solo as EDJ. He explained:
So, after a couple of years of doing this solo EDJ thing and having to have (Fruit Bats) in parentheses after my name everywhere I go, I've decided to drop the parentheses and start doing Fruit Bats again full steam ahead.
I missed having a band behind me, I missed my old songs, and I've come to hate parentheses. Who knew?
Some of you may be stoked by this prospect. I know I am. For those of you that are indeed stoked, we will be heading out on tour this fall with some dudes from Louisville, plus some shows of our own. There will be a new album in early 2016 with a full slate of touring to follow. See you soon.
Eric also joined MMJ on stage at the Thursday show. More pictures from Friday and both setlists below...
