Fairy Bones, Phoenix’s own brash pop-rockers, will celebrate the release of their sophomore album, 0% Fun at Crescent Ballroom on February 23rd.
They have been named “Best Local Band” by the Phoenix New Times, set out on numerous US tours – including direct-support for Grammy-nominated Highly Suspect, graced the cover of Echo Magazine and College Times, released adventurous music videos – one of which won “Best Music Video” at Phoenix Comicon, and landed opening slots for impressive artists including Marcy Playground, Fuel, Mother Mother, St Lucia, Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas, and Rozwell Kid.
Their debut album, Dramabot (2015), adventurously explored a youthful bands experimentation with instruments and songwriting, but their sophomore album, 0% Fun (2018), sees them settling into their musical identity. What began as a lyrically intimate dissection of personal thoughts and feelings slowly began to echo the same thoughts and feelings felt around the nation in 2017.
Touching on themes of anxiety, depression, and the pressures of maintaining the perfect, Instagram-worthy facade, 0% Fun is a upbeat and often wildly sarcastic take on one woman’s journey through her twenties.
Fairy Bones will celebrate their sophomore effort on February 23rd at Crescent Ballroom with support from their friends in Doll Skin, Bear Ghost and Paper Foxes. This event will be 16+ and tickets start at $12. Tickets go on sale February 17th, available through www.crescentphx.com or www.PsykoSteve.com.
“0% Fun” Album Release Party
Friday, February 23rd
at Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix, AZ
Today AJJ announced DESERT TRASH, a night of music, art, skateboarding and comedy – all curated by AJJ – on Saturday, February 3rd at The Van Buren in downtown Phoenix!
The evening will be hosted by legendary funnyman Kevin McDonald of the Kids In The Hall. “Kevin wrote us a fan letter last year…” writes AJJ singer Sean Bonnette “and this was a huge deal for us. We all grew up watching Kids in the Hall, and Kevin McDonald totally helped shape our senses of humor.”
The DESERT TRASH musical lineup is stacked with some of AJJ’s friends and heroes:
From Los Angeles, California: Xiu Xiu! To quote Bonnette: “We opened up for Xiu Xiu in 2004 and they blew my mind. Since then, Jamie (Stewart) has been one of my favorite artists and songwriters, totally uncompromising. I’m so excited to see his solo set.”
Phoenix’s own Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra… “We go way back with some of the members of the Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra and it will be an honor to share the stage with them. They’re a refreshing band in these last days of guitar music.”
In addition to the music and comedy on stage, DESERT TRASH will have a Pop-Up Skatepark in the parking lot provided by Cowtown Skateboards. Skaters are encouraged to come early and have some fun before the show. Beautiful artwork will be on display throughout the venue, and there will be a live screen printing demonstration from Tucson, AZ’s Tanline Printing.
