Who: Fruit

Where: GLC

Oz band band Fruit performs their "melodic pop-acoustic folk-electric rock" tonight at GLC. "Emotive, instinctive, that’s where all of our songwriting springs from," says singer/guitarist Susie Keynes. They perform songs from their most recent album, Live at the Basement , which was released in the US in June, and songs from previous albums Here for Days (2001), a "limited US release" and the live album, Shift (1998). "We want to connect with the audience, playing songs where we get them to sing back to us. We’re colour, vibrancy, and selection," says Keynes.
