Summerfest's opening day marks a sort of homecoming for Fruit Bats. Though the group got its start in the Windy City in the late '90s, its frontman and founder Eric Johnson, who has also worked with Califone and The Shins, was born in Kenosha and spent part of his youth there. Fruit Bats play the U.S. Cell Stage at 4:15 p.m. on Wednesday, June 27.
